The 3.5 kilometer-long Rhine Promenade on the left side of the Rhine consist of the Konrad Adenauer bank and the Kaiserin-Augusta docks.
The Kaiserin-Augusta docks, at the southern end of the Rhine Promenade, were designed between 1856 and 1861 by order of Augusta von Sachsen-Weimar-Eisenach, the wife of Kaiser Wilhelm I, by the ingenious Prussian garden designer Peter-Joseph Lenné (Sanssouci, Pfaueninsel and many more) according to plans by Hermann Fürst von Pückler-Muskau.
in 1902, twelve years after Augusta's death, the second section of the Rhine Promenade- today's Konrad-Adenauer-Ufer - was built from the Electoral Palace to the German Corner.
As part of the 2011 Federal Garden Show, the Rhine Promenade was redesigned. A magnificent riverside boulevard was created, lined with important sights, inviting visitors to stroll along.
