Considered as one of Germany’s wealthiest, Düsseldorf is a modern city that at first glance seems all business; advertising, telecommunications and banking are the key sectors in this city of 1.2 million. However once you spend a little time here, you will soon discover what else this superb city has to offer: culture, green spaces, nightlife, shopping and more, Düsseldorf has it all.
The rebuilding of the Altstadt has resulted in one of the most atmospheric Old Town’s in Germany filled with bars, coffee shops and brewing houses so it is well worth exploring this fantastic area in depth. The area also boasts many of the city’s cultural gems including the renowned Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen art museum, churches and the picturesque Burgplatz Square where you can marvel at the market stalls or enjoy a coffee as you watch the world pass by. And of course, why not visit the Konigsallee for a truly world class shopping experience.
Another famous attraction in Düsseldorf is the promenade on the bank of Rhine, which is widely recognised as one of the most beautiful urban spots in Germany. It links the Old Town to the modern MedienHafen district, a completely transformed harbour area famous for its amazing international avant-garde architecture. The Düsseldorf promenade provides an opportunity to relax and watch the ships passing by and is rightly considered the best place in town to have a cocktail and see the sun setting over the Rhine.
Why not spend the evening bar-hopping around the Altstadt and you will soon discover how the endless bar offering and incredible social atmosphere helped earn Düsseldorf’s Altstadt the nickname of the ‘longest bar in the world’. Furthermore as the sun sets on Düsseldorf, the entire city offers its visitors a truly outstanding nightlife from its pubs to its chic cocktail bars to an array of dance clubs to a buzzing theatre and opera scene.
