Reasons to visit Düsseldorf

Wander through history in Altstadt

Düsseldorf was founded in 1288 and the city’s history is most visible in its Altstadt – or Old Town.

Walk along the narrow cobbled streets to see landmarks such as St Lambertus and its crooked spire, which is said to have been twisted by the devil himself. The Renaissance-style Rathaus and the quirky wall-mounted Wibbel the Tailor are also must-sees.

Cultural highlights in the Altstadt include the Filmmuseum, the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen art gallery and the NRW-Forum, which celebrates modern art, photography and design.

Fall into fashion heaven on Königsallee

As one of Germany’s wealthiest cities, it’s no surprise that Düsseldorf is bursting with luxury boutiques. The mile-long Königsallee runs either side of a canal. Better known as Kö to its locals, the boulevard is a hotspot for fashionistas, thanks to its extensive collection of renowned designers such as Chanel, Cartier and Louis Vuitton.

Set aside a morning to wander this tree-lined avenue. Browse some of the most acclaimed fashion in the world, seek out independent local designers or enjoy lunch at any one of the picturesque cafes speckled along the boulevard.

Sample ‘Kaffee und Kuchen’

The German tradition of ‘Kaffee und Kuchen’ (coffee and cake) is similar to the British tradition of afternoon tea. Relax, eat cake and enjoy your own company or that of your friends without worrying about where you need to be.

In Düsseldorf, there are countless venues where you can taste this ritual for yourself. For an especially memorable experience, settle in a cosy cafe lining the Rhine.

Try decadent cakes like erdbeerboden (a strawberry sponge cake) and schwarzwälder kirschtorte (Black Forest gâteau), or warm yourself with apfelstrudel (apple strudel) while sipping a freshly brewed cappuccino.
