  • Beautiful old houses. Different gastronomic offers. Here everyone can find his favorite really. Museums, theater of the Rhine and much, much more. You meet nice people and can go can be good.

  • Nice place to shop. Also with our daughter. Although they grumbled that the clothing business yet mainly for adults were and very little for children. Her favorite store was pylones. Beautiful stuff. Not very cheap. Many old homes and buildings in that old town that are beautiful to see. Many restaurants in the area. Also many pubs. That pulled us not really.

Where to stay in Dusseldorf

The Old City, Altstadt, is the center of the action and offers a number of hotels and guesthouses. For quiet evenings and a view of the Old City consider the Oberkassel/Niederkassel area on the other side of the Rhine river. There is inexpensive accommodation in the Unterbilk area near the university, along with a collection of bars, restaurants, and cafes.
