  • ALT Stadt in Düsseldorf is well the only old town which was not bombed to pieces. A wonderful experience both during the day and evening time where life pulsates. A schweinaxe and a all (local BREW) is a must on one of the old breweries. It is summer and Sun so is eating places along the river wonderful. The city is Perfect as both a boys trip and a romantic walk with her boyfriend. Is shopping the foot there then you are in paradise. A short distance from the airport by taxi so don't Saute wasting time by bus.
