Price Comparisons of Fitness Gyms in Dusseldorf

By on May 6th, 2016

Like many others, I’ve had my fair share of German bakery goodies, heaps of gouda cheese and at least 5 ice creams a week while living in Düsseldorf. Here’s a little inspiration to get us back into the swing of fitness while living in Düsseldorf. Because I know I’m not the only one on a budget, here is a price comparison of the fitness gyms in Dusseldorf (conveniently from cheapest to most expensive).

Since I have not been to all of these gyms in Dusseldorf myself, I have used this information from what they offer online (some prices harder to find for obvious reason). I ask more now than ever that if you’ve found they charge more upon arrival, offer poor services or offer more than what I’ve credited them for, please leave a comment below!

Want in on a little secret?

There’s many more ways to get in your exercise while living #LifeInDüsseldorf, consider checking out the many sport groups, soccer/football clubs, badminton courts, etc. around the area. Getting a little more specific, here are my personal secrets for working out:

Sport im Park

The city of Düsseldorf actually provides a “sport in the park” workout opportunity for FREE! It stars on May 2, 2016 – October 9, 2016 this year (dates may vary by year). Workouts are run almost everyday in locations across the city.

Alma Oberkassel

This is my favorite place in the winter and summer for badminton (and I never even liked badminton before). They’ve got an awesome restaurant and bar, a fitness studio, multiple indoor badminton courts and a huge outdoor beach volleyball space. This is a great place to bring friends and family and you can pay per day/hour for most activities.

There’s one more place that I’m not sharing with you online to save the preciousness (is that a word?) of the spot. I take workout classes in a school gym who offer yoga, Zumba, dance, Pilates, aerobics and more for 60 Euros per year. If you’ve managed to read to the bottom of the post, you deserve it! Simply CLICK HERE, send us your e-mail and we’ll send you this hidden gem right away!

    Hi Jenna, you could add 2 more to your list:
    – Holmes Place is a nationwide luxury chain with 2 branches in Düsseldorf. I am not sure of the prices, but I trained at one in Berlin a few years back and it cost 100 € per month. This includes massive training spaces, every course imanginable, pool and wellness area.
    – Health City is another chain with several branches in NRW, including 2 in Düsseldorf. Prices range from around 40-60 € per month, including sauna, cross-fit, courses and lots of good quality equipment that you don’t find in the cheaper gyms.

    Great article Jenna.

    I also run outdoor fitness classes across Düsseldorf. Each class is delivered in English. The cost is €10 per session (€5 for your first class). There is no joining fee or contract. The classes are aimed at every fitness level combining cardio, resistance band and bodyweight exercises. I also run circuit training on a Saturday morning.

    Anyone interested can send me a PM at

      Hey there Cristina,

      While I haven’t had experience with these gyms myself, a few expats in the community listed these as recommendations for gyms that offer memberships on a monthly basis without having to pay for the full year: Fitklusiv, Taifun Sports, Basic8, Fit X and FIT IN Düsseldorf.

      I hope one of these will work for you! 😊

    Hi, May I add John Reed in Bilk?
    The peculiarities are: 24/7 opening and video-classes from 6 am till 11 pm, English speaking trainers in US locations: Miami, Texas, San Francisco, Las Vegas etc… It is an awesome feeling, for a couple of hours one feels elsewhere 😎
    Fee: 25€/ month

Michael Jackson - The Symphony Experience - Düsseldorf (VVK)
October 20, 2017 · 7:00 pm · 10:00 pm
Mitsubishi Electric HALLE
Sichert euch schnell euer Ticket auf Eventim:üsseldorf

Im Oktober 2017 ist es soweit -„Michael Jackson – The Symphony Experience“ kommt wieder auf die Bühne!

Events und Angebote Düsseldorf ist nicht der Veranstalter der hier beschriebenen Veranstaltung, sondern vermittelt lediglich den Zugang zu Tickets.

Michael Jackson gilt als größter Popstar aller Zeiten – und noch nie hat jemand live seine Musik mit Klassik vermengt. Noch nie? Doch: Im Juni 2016 stieg in der Berliner Mercedes-Benz-Arena zum ersten Mal die Show mit dem Titel „Michael Jackson – The Symphony Experience“. Mit einem Orchester aus 70 Musikern und einem Dutzend Sängern feierte das spektakuläre Event seine Premiere. Rund 4.000 Besucher strömten in die Arena und sahen eine zweistündige Show mit 22 Hits aus der Feder von Michael Jackson – umgesetzt als Mix aus Pop und Klassik. Mit dabei, sind die größten Chart-Erfolge „Heal the World“, „Thriller“, „Man in the Mirror“, „Billie Jean“, „Beat it“ und viele mehr.

Bereits bei der Premiere in Berlin war schnell klar: Das ist zu gut, um es nur ein einziges Mal auf der Bühne zu haben und dann in der Versenkung verschwinden zu lassen. Michael Jackson und Klassik, das passt. „Es war ein Abend voller Zauber“, fasst Organisator Sebastiao Pembele zusammen und drückt damit genau das aus, was die Besucher fühlten.

Extra für die Shows kommt erneut das Isaiah Symphony Orchestra zusammen, das sich im Rahmen der ersten „Michael Jackson – The Symphony Experience“ gefunden und gegründet hat. Auch großartige Sänger werden dabei sein. Bisher haben die Soul-Sänger Mic Donet und Rino Galiano zugesagt, eine Sängerin soll noch dazu kommen. Es ist aber keine Las-Vegas-Show, keine Imitation.
