    It may be a relatively small regional capital, but no one told Dusseldorfā€™s residents. With an architecture, arts and nightlife scenes that would do much larger cities proud, youā€™ll get a friendly, small-town vibe together with all the big city tastes of Germany that had you heading half way round the world in the first place.

    Take the historical Altstadt district, nicknamed ā€˜the longest bar in the worldā€™, and home to a sleek, vibrant after-dark scene (be sure to try the regional specialty, Altbier) that has itā€™s own rival in the equally trendy Medeinhafen harbor area just down the road. From traditional, oversized beer halls serving unfeasibly large mugs of lager to glittering cocktail bars, Dusseldorf seems to have everything in terms of nightlife, including freshly cooked Pretzels and street-side Curry Wurst to finish the evening off with.

    The ornate buildings of Benrath Palace are Dusseldorfā€™s postcard attraction, fronted by a lake and huge fountain, and surrounded by expansive gardens, while The Goethe Museum is an ornate baroque building, and a fascinating spot for literature lovers. The Rhine-baroque styles prominent around the Rathaus (town hall) are a big draw, too, as well as the accompanying bronze soldier riding his green-rusting horse.

    Itā€™s easy to miss Dusseldorfā€™s charms at first glance, though. It can come across as a business-focused town, full of serious, suited men who bustle their way between corporate offices. Thereā€™s plenty in the way of designer business suits and banking, but getting past this and exploring the restaurants and bars will quickly tell you that Dusseldorfā€™s residents know very well how to let their hair down.

    St Lambertus church is the best of a wide array of spectacular religious buildings, all medieval splendour at the heart of the old town; escape to the country with a brisk ten mile stroll along the banks of the Rhine, admiring the scenery around the tourist restaurants until your reach the harbour and old town.

    The city also boasts a large Asian population, including several Korean BBQ, Japanese sushi & other Asian restaurants. There can also be seen around town the "Harajuku Girls" of Dusseldorf fashion statements groups.

    Try Dusseldorf's "Alt Beer" served on tap piped in from the brewery--metered like water!

    Dusseldorf is the best of both worlds: a taste of the friendly, village vibe of Germany blended with all the draws of a big city; a hard city not to love.

      Points of Interest near Düsseldorf

      Looking for important things or something to do or a place to go see near Düsseldorf? Here is our list of options.

      Filter By Tags:

      • Essen
        For more than 100 years, Essen has been considered being the industrial heart of Germany, because it was the headquarter of steel producer Krupp. Many furnaces have been shut since the 1980s, but administrative headquarters of major companies are still located in Essen. The southern suburbs, Kettwig and Werden, are located in the beautiful Ruhr valley. Villa Hügel, the private residence of Krupp family, is open to visitors. Zeche Zollverein, a former coal mine in the northern suburbs, has been designated as UNESCO World Heritage.

      • Cologne
        Cologne – Köln or Kölle, depending on how native you’ve gone – is Germany’s oldest city, dating back over two millennia. Dominated by the towers of its rustic, soaring cathedral, Cologne is a little heralded corner of Germany that hides numerous photogenic medieval and Roman features amongst its charms. It’s a refined city, a place where Belgian-style chocolate shops integrate the epic beer halls, and the angular pastel houses along the banks of the Rhine give the centre an almost fairytale vibe.

        It’s hard to miss the twin towers of the 157 meter tall cathedral, Dom, which took over 600 years to build, and are celebrated throughout Germany in songs and literature. Inside you’ll find the golden Sarcophagus of Epiphany, a 13th century relic that’s at the forefront of a mammoth collection of art hidden in the cathedrals’ treasure chamber. In fact, the entire city is rammed full of churches, with twelve ornate Romanic examples tucked within the Medieval city walls, including a tiny 9th century worship spot that takes the breath away.

        The Fish Market, the City Gates, the City Hall, the Praetorium and the Roman Tower all offer outstanding examples of the Cologne of old, too, while you can pick up a thorough explanation of it all at the impressive Römisch-Germanisches Museum, which gives a full account of the Romans along the Rhine, as well as housing its own mosaics.

        The city’s not all about history, though. There’s plenty in the way of off the wall modern architecture here, and the locals have a penchant for a few beers (try the local specialty Kölsch) and soaking up an inspiring local collection of modern art. The beer halls here are notoriously lively, while there’s a full on social calendar incorporating the impressive local soccer team and plenty in the way of live concerts or theater to enjoy, too.

        While it might be Germany’s oldest city, Cologne’s far from stuffy, and goes out of its way to run with the times. None of that ancient charm’s been lost, though, and you can spend hours exploring the side streets eying ornate buildings and snacking on spectacular chocolate. Alternatively, bring a strong painkiller, and dive into the tumultuous nightlife.

        During the Christmas period you can stroll at three different authentic Christmas markets: one at the cathedral, one in town center and one at 'Alter Markt' near the river.

      • Venlo
        Venlo has been inhabited since the Roman Era. It is likely this habitation started and stayed here because this place was an important crossing of roads and a crossing of the river Maas.

        In the Middle Ages Venlo was an important trading town at the river Maas, in the 17th and 18th century the town was occupied first by the Spanish, then the French. The town was severely damaged in the Second World War because the front line led right through the town’s center for a couple of months.

        Today, Venlo is a trading-, expedition and industry town. The city is a center for a vast region, including the German Ruhr Area. Venlo is directly situated at the German border.

        Every year during the carnaval you have some major events that attracts many people. It's one of the best places to participate with the northern European carnaval. In 2013 the city won an award for best citycentre of the Netherlands.
