Things to do in 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.
