Düsseldorf, Germany Travel Guide

Düsseldorf has a well-to-do reputation as an international financial giant, underpinned by its chic shopping street Königsallee and the revitalized harbour where buildings have led to the major names in architecture.

What is Düsseldorf best known for?

Worth seeing
If you decide to visit Düsseldorf, you should make sure you see the Rhine tower. It is not only a landmark of the city and a pretty accessory on its skyline, but also has a viewing platform and a restaurant at almost 180 metres high which turns on its own axis once an hour. This will give you a good view over Düsseldorf and its surroundings. When nearby, you should also go and see the “Medienhafen” (media harbour). The interestingly designed “Gehry-buildings” are a further great photo opportunity. For those travellers interested in Japanese culture, the Japanese quarter around the “Immermannstrasse” street could be a worthwhile option. Asian supermarkets, grocery shops, restaurants and much more can be found here with the main station right around the corner. 
 
Art and culture
Düsseldorf is a city that is rich in culture. Numerous exhibitions and concerts take place in different parts of the city. Located in the south is the castle of Benrath, which offers two museums and a breathtaking view of the building’s outer walls. The art academy could be an entertaining stop for all those who are interested in drawing, painting and sculpting. In the summer, there are many festivals held right by the Rhine’s bank, such as Japan Day or the French Festival. Also, Düsseldorf is one of the three main carnival strongholds in Germany so be sure to visit it in the spring as well.
 
Fashion and shopping
For several years now, Düsseldorf has been considered an important fashion and shopping metropolis. All shopping lovers will feel at home in the “Königsallee”. Some people will need a whole day to get through the full kilometer packed with shopping opportunities at all the famous and noble luxury stores. Located right next to it is the brand new “Kö-Bogen” which was designed by New York star designer Daniel Libeskind. The modern building made of glass and natural stone does not only accommodate the luxury shopping center Breuninger and noble other stores, but also several fine restaurants and an espresso bar for a quick refreshment in between shopping sprees. Düsseldorf’s old town also offers many shopping opportunities for all.
 
Food, drinks and nightlife
In Düsseldorf you will typically drink “Altbier”. It’s not hard to find a pub (“Kneipe”) or two on or around the Bolkerstrasse. With more than 260 pubs on half a square kilometer, Düsseldorf is considered the “world’s longest bar” and is merry and active late into the night. The city doesn’t lack fine restaurants either. Whether home-style cooking, Italian or Japanese, Düsseldorf has a wide culinary offering. No matter whether you prefer a burger restaurant or three-star cuisine, in this city, every gourmet can have what they love.
 
Transport Connections
The inner city of Düsseldorf is located about 9 km from the airport and can be reached by suburban train (S-Bahn), regional train (RE, RB) or taxi. The “S-Bahn” station is right by the terminal. To get the regional train, you can simply take the skytrain to the airport’s train station.

Daily regular departures mean you are able to pick a river cruise in the morning or afternoon.
