Discover Dusseldorf on the banks of the river Rhine. This German city is known for its fashion and business — but Dusseldorf is far more playful than you would imagine. With hearty food, hearty beer, and a hearty dose of German spirit, Dusseldorf is alive with activities. A hub of music, art and nightlife, the all-business exterior is the perfect front for exciting Dusseldorf.
Altstadt, old town, is the historic centre of Dusseldorf and has hundreds of bars, pubs, and restaurants to frequent. The locals refer to it as “the longest bar in the world.” Discover the nightlife where students and most of the business community frequents to blow off steam. The Rheinuferpromenade is a promenade with restaurants that make for a great place to admire the river. Take a cruise down the river on a boat, or take a warm summer walk. When the weather’s good, the place is packed with people at beer gardens overlooking the water and watching the sun set. The Rhine tower, or the Rheinturm, is a tall landmark over Dusseldorf that features an incredible digital clock. Take a trip up to the top of the tower to look over the city — great for sightseeing, and with a bar at the top! Schloss Benrath is a magnificent rococo castle. You can take a tour in German, or take yourself around this museum and explore.
Cologne is only 20 minutes away from Dusseldorf by train, and about 40 by car (due to traffic). Cologne competes daily with Dusseldorf, as the cities fiercely duke it out as cultural and economic hubs. Cologne has more of a historic exterior, as the high-gothic architecture can be seen all over the city. The Cologne Cathedral is intricate and truly marvellous, with views of the Rhine and impossibly tall spires. The Museum Ludwig has one of the largest Picasso collections in Europe, and rivals most major museums in their hosting roles for pop art and surrealism. In Cologne, modern art rules. Bonn is an hour away from Dusseldorf by car or train. This city is known for its Beethoven House, the museum and landmark dedicated to the visionary composer and his birthplace. The small town house is a marvel to see, as it housed one of the world’s most famous composers, and now displays scores, instruments, and letters from his lifetime.
