Schloss Mickeln (Mickeln Castle): Manor house of HHU

With "Schloss Mickeln" in the city district of Himmelgeist in Düsseldorf, surrounded by an extensive park, the Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf (HHU) has a representative conference center and guest house for events such as meetings, press conferences, festive events in a more upscale ambience and receptions. It has become the Guest House and Conference Centre of the Heinrich-Heine University since June 2000 thanks to the sponsorship of the Friends and Supporters of the University.
