    Without a doubt the most recommended part to visit. It awaits the charm of past times, quaint shops and restaurants in which to enjoy a good beer or a Curry Wurst. The tourist office has a very complete guide in Spanish for visiting Düsseldorf.

There is inexpensive accommodation in the Unterbilk area near the university, along with a collection of bars, restaurants, and cafes.
