About Düsseldorf

Including tips for the best time to visit Düsseldorf

As the capital of Germany’s North Rhine–Westphalia region, Düsseldorf is dripping with style and has plenty to offer every kind of traveller. From shopping in high-end fashion boutiques to taking in views of the River Rhine from atop the 790-feet-tall Rheinturm, you’ll be hard pressed to ever find yourself bored here.

Architecture in Düsseldorf is a celebration of diversity, where futuristic buildings such as the iconic Gehry Bauten go hand in hand with the medieval structures and narrow, cobblestone streets of the Old Town – otherwise known as the Altstadt. Don’t miss a chance to explore the eye-catching Schloss Benrath – an 18th-century baroque palace which now houses a natural history museum and manicured gardens.

Known as the fashion capital of Germany, Düsseldorf is teeming with places in which to shop. Streets such as Königsallee and Schadowstrasse – billed as Germany’s ‘shopping mile’ – are lined with a whole host of boutique shops – from Armani to Chanel and everything in between.

From bar-hopping around the Old Town – the self-proclaimed ‘longest bar in the world’ – to hanging with the locals in cavernous beer halls, there’s plenty of life after dark in Düsseldorf. Favourites include the Zum Uerige brewpub and the Salon des Amateurs – one of Germany’s most progressive dance clubs which pumps out electronic music all night long.

There’s plenty of art and culture in Düsseldorf. Head to the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen for modern art and the Schifffahrtsmuseum for an insight into the city’s maritime history.

Asian food.

July 3, 2022

Asian food. SO much to eat with little time. Once you get off train station, you can walk further and you will see little Tokyo street. It 's full asia super market and authentic restaurant to try one. Snack bubble tea. Walk further to the port. You find bar and many good spot to chill. If you have time, you can visit Aquazoo with small prize. it's combination between small zoo and museum. Good for family half day tour (3 hours) to enjoy everything with no rush. Next to it, it's big garden to walk around.

I love Dusseldorf, there's so mush to see and do. A diverse multicutural city that is both enjoyable and safe - as long as your not walking around drunk! lol Lots to do on the Rhine as well in in the main city centre and surrounding suburbs. I guarantee however long you stay for - it won't be long enough! Night life is bustling and full of action, fun and merriment - ENJOY!

We arrived in Düsseldorf in week time, it was a quiet city. At the weekend city awakens. People are all around the Alstadt enjoying breweries and having parties. We learned that there are lots of tourists arriving the city during weekend. 2 days in the city was enough to enjoy the most of the attractions city offers.

A very interesting city with excellent Japanese and Mexican restaurants. Seemingly, lots to see and do. Sadly, quite a few empty retail spaces downtown. Hopefully, the area will recover in the near future.

Good atmosphere.

April 24, 2022

Good atmosphere. We ate and drank at the river. Lovely old town to enjoy. Food and drink flowed. Really enjoyed the shopping area. You can also walk the most expensive shopping road and have fantasies of actually affording anything lol Very diverse and multicultural. Visited and dined in the Japanese restaurant in the revolving tower. Excellent experience. Well done Duss!
