Plan Your Düsseldorf Holiday

A large and beautiful city, Düsseldorf boasts several world class arts and entertainment venues. The Tonhalle is a stunning concert space that was originally built as a planetarium, and whose gigantic domed roof grants remarkable acoustics that enrich every performance. The Opernhaus Düsseldorf is a similarly majestic building that features shows from both the Oper am Rhein and Ballett am Rhein companies. If your inner art lover needs some attention visit the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen art Gallery. The building is almost as stunning as the works by Picasso and Matisse that line its walls. Every year in July and November the city is home to the Rhenish Festivals so book your tickets to Düsseldorf early if coming during the festivities.

The best time to visit Düsseldorf is in the summer during July and August, when it is also peak tourist season. The spring is also a pleasant time to visit and avoid most of the crowds. Cheap hotels in Düsseldorf are easily available during the winter months from January to March, and flight deals to Düsseldorf can be found all year with Etihad Airways.
