The Kaiserswerther  Diakonie, founded in 1836 by pastor Theodor Fliedner and his wife Friederike, today is one of the major diaconal institutions in Germany.
On our tour we see the historic buildings, the church of the deaconess  mother house and the nursing museum, and enjoy the ambience of the Disselhoff-Park. Following the tour we'll make our way into the city and  have a look to the Fliednerhaus where the couple Fliedner and later also Florence Nightingale lived. 

We enjoy our welcome dinner after a long day of travels and overnight in a hotel nearby.
