Dusseldorf Germany

As the capital of Germany’s North Rhine–Westphalia region, Düsseldorf is dripping with style and has plenty to offer every kind of traveller. From shopping in high-end fashion boutiques to taking in views of the River Rhine from atop the 790-feet-tall Rheinturm, you’ll be hard pressed to ever find yourself bored here.

Architecture in Düsseldorf is a celebration of diversity, where futuristic buildings such as the iconic Gehry Bauten go hand in hand with the medieval structures and narrow, cobblestone streets of the Old Town – otherwise known as the Altstadt. Don’t miss a chance to explore the eye-catching Schloss Benrath – an 18th-century baroque palace which now houses a natural history museum and manicured gardens.

Known as the fashion capital of Germany, Düsseldorf is teeming with places in which to shop. Streets such as Königsallee and Schadowstrasse – billed as Germany’s ‘shopping mile’ – are lined with a whole host of boutique shops – from Armani to Chanel and everything in between.

From bar-hopping around the Old Town – the self-proclaimed ‘longest bar in the world’ – to hanging with the locals in cavernous beer halls, there’s plenty of life after dark in Düsseldorf. Favourites include the Zum Uerige brewpub and the Salon des Amateurs – one of Germany’s most progressive dance clubs which pumps out electronic music all night long.

There’s plenty of art and culture in Düsseldorf. Head to the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen for modern art and the Schifffahrtsmuseum for an insight into the city’s maritime history.
