The canoeing course of the boat is open all day for young and old and the exhibitors are looking forward to making their boats available for test runs. In the World of Paddling you can experience canoeing really close up and test the boats under realistic conditions. Nowhere is it as easy to get on the water as at boot Düsseldorf! Information about canoeing as a competitive sport and about canoeing clubs can be found in the "Kanu-Café" of the German Canoe Association right next to the river.
Next to the river there is a high ropes course with a climbing wall. Secured with a helmet and harness, you can climb up a rope ladder almost to the ceiling of the hall. There you will be welcomed by experienced climbers who will supervise the course with suspension bridge, "canyon" and rope routes. If you stop to climb for a moment, you will have a unique view of what is happening in the World of Paddling and of the kayaks and canoes that are being tried out on the course of the river. Also the rock walls in the World of Paddling are not only decoration, but can be climbed. Don't worry, whoever falls lands on soft mats!
