10 Things to Do in Dusseldorf That You Shouldn't Miss

October 18, 2017 Darwin Bolte

The capital of North Rhine-Westphalia, Dusseldorf is a regional economic powerhouse straddling the banks of the Rhine River. Altstadt is not just Dusseldorf's lovely old town, but also where the city's nightlife is based and where Altbier, its native dark beer, is plentiful. Dusselforfians take their beer seriously. Königsallee (Ko to the locals), Dusseldorf's famous shopping street, has many high-end stores. And the Museum Kunst Palast has one of the Rhineland's best art collections.

Classic Remise Dusseldorf

Reviewed By 73nina - Cairo, Egypt

Very different yet interesting museum. Many old cars from various brands. The cars are placed in a nice and organized way. On the second floor, you’ll find old car documents and newspapers from the old days. There is a nice restaurant as well where you can rest have a beer or even a good meal. Totally recommend it especially for older kids and teenagers.

Very pretty park with some good walks and a variety of animals to see. My kids enjoyed the information lodge where they learned about woodland animals (and got warm). Would be nice on a warm day, great for a picnic. Reasonable good play park for the kids.

Stretching for over 10 miles along the Rhine, this path is well suited for walking, biking and inline skating.

Reviewed By Neil K - Liverpool, United Kingdom

My twin brother Stephen and I were in Dusseldorf over the Christmas period and we walked down the wonderful Prominade and what a great walk.
Walking down the prominade and the riverfront there are some wonderful buildings that look really cool,the views of the River Rhine are stunning and it was so nice clearing our heads after our beery night previously were we cut into the magnificent Old Town and the great Christmas Market.
The Christmas market in Burgplatz is awesome and the pubs,bars and restaurants not just along the Prominade but in the Old Town are fantastic.
Well worth checking out.

Stadterhebungsmonument

Reviewed By Neil K - Liverpool, United Kingdom

Stadterhebungsmonument is without a shadow of a doubt one of the most beautiful and well detailed Sculpures I've ever seen.
Located in Burgplatz this stunning Sculpure was commissioned in 1988 on the 700th anniversary city jubilee.
Designed by renowned Sculpure Bert Gerresheim,when you first look at it you could be forgiven into thinking it's a hotch botch of figures from a bygone age but on closer inspection you see how wonderful the art work is not just the main monument but the other parts of the monument stretching onto the little bridge.
The famous battle of Worringen were Dusseldorf gained it's independence are interwoven into the sculpture,the breastplates,helmets and figures are beautifully detailed,the skeleton is superb as is the mountain lion which is located by the market cart,this part of the monument is significant as it points to the market rights gained in 1288 by Dusseldorf to become a market town,a brochure can be obtained from the town hall which details the significance of the monument.
The location in the beautiful Old Town means it's a very popular tourist attraction and it's just so nice looking at this amazing statue and seeing how much of the cities history is actually encapsulated into this wonderful piece of art.
Easy to locate in Burgplatz in an area of outstandingly beautiful architecture and most definitely well worth checking out.

MedienHafen

Reviewed By mWrite - Helsinki, Finland

MedienHafen area is nice area close by Rheinturm. Harbour area has few old buildings and plenty of new ones where architects have had free hands. Result is unique buildings with plenty of interesting details. Medienhafen houses for example known German magazine "Focus" and design shop Vitra. Several nice restaurants and hotel. I would not necessarily overnight here as I guess area is quiet in the evening.

No street reflects the city's well-to-do reputation more than the wide array of upscale stores and restaurants on Knigstrasse.

The parade way was on both sides of this wide street. Security was great. Organization was remarkable. The street is easily accessible by underground train.

Nordpark

Reviewed By Mitali B

It is the perfect place to go on a bright sunny day. It's the best experience for a person of any age group. The Fountains and cloud shaped trees are a must to see. The Japanese Gardens are very well maintained. There is also a restaurant in there and a place for some gaming activities which is quite fun.

A beautiful office and retail complex in the heart of Dusseldorf, designed by Daniel Libeskind. Art and architecture lovers will probably enjoy this area the most. Very picturesque and perfect for taking a break.
