Düsseldorf Travel Tip:
Wunderland Kalkar is an amusement park in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany, just north of Düsseldorf. It is built on the former site of SNR-300, a nuclear power plant that never went online because of construction problems and protests. The park was constructed by Dutch entrepreneuer Hennie van der Most, who purchased the site for a rumored price of USD$3 billion. Wunderland Kalkar receives around 600,000 visitors each year.
Many of the facilities constructed for the plant have been integrated into the park and its attractions, including the cooling tower, which features a swing ride and a climbing wall. The park also features four restaurants, eight bars, and six hotels.
