From the Königsallee, Germany’s most luxurious shopping boulevard, it’s just a stone’s throw to the historical Altstadt (Old Town) with its 260 bars and restaurants. The narrow lanes of the so-called “longest bar in the world” are pulsating with life. Take the time to sample the local “Alt” beer and traditional Rhineland specialities.

Enjoy peaceful walks along the Rhine promenade, explore the breathtaking architecture of the MedienHafen (media harbour) or relax in one of the cosy cafés and bars along Germany’s biggest river. Musicians and actors inspire their audiences at the Tonhalle (concert hall) and the Deutsche Oper am Rhein (German Opera on the Rhine), while Museum Kunstpalast and the Art Collection of North Rhine-Westphalia are popular for their remarkable exhibitions and collections.

Carnival, Jazz Rally, the Biggest Fun Fair on the Rhine, Japan Day and Christmas Markets – there is always a reason to travel to Düsseldorf!
