A CITY WITH HEART AND SOUL
Soak up the charm and unique atmosphere of the city on the Rhine: art galleries, boutiques, theatres and landmarks promise varied sights and experiences. Stroll along the chic boulevard of the Königsallee and through the splendid streets of the old town with their quaint Altbier pubs – you’ll find friendly locals and a warm welcome wherever you go.
AN ATTRACTION WITH A 360° VIEW
The Rhine Tower is one of Düsseldorf’s most famous landmarks. At 250.5 metres, it’s the tallest building in the city and its viewing platform offers a stunning vista that stretches as far as the mountains and even Cologne on a clear day. There is a restaurant 172.5 metres up in the air, which slowly rotates around its own axis once an hour, giving you a view in every direction.
A GARDEN WITH SPACE FOR EVERYONE
Dating back to 1769, the Hofgarten is the oldest public garden in Germany and spans a total area of 27.73 hectares. It stretches from the northern end of the Königsallee all the way to the Ehrenhof on the bank of the Rhine. The Hofgarten is the perfect place to explore nature, play sports, go for a stroll and just unwind and escape the busy pace of life in the city centre for a while.
MASTERPIECES OF CONTEMPORARY ARCHITECTURE
In one part of Düsseldorf, silos and warehouses have been replaced by a new landmark known as the Medienhafen. The curvaceous buildings are home to a whole host of companies from various sectors. The old quay walls, steps and railway tracks now listed as being historically important are what gives the harbour its unique charm. Take a guided tour to best appreciate the harmonious blend of the old buildings and the contemporary architecture.
18TH CENTURY SPLENDOUR AND GRANDEUR
The majestic Benrath Palace lies in the south of Düsseldorf near the Rhine River. It is a rare example of Rococo architecture, complete with parks and gardens. Trace the footsteps of the aristocracy and be enchanted by the world of gardening and nature during that period.
Experience a masterpiece of architecture and parkland in the south of the city. The beautiful pink Rococo palace is always worth a visit.
Stroll through the gorgeous park with its lawns, flowerbeds and mature trees, and watch the ships going by from the shores of the Rhine at the edge of the park. Enjoy the fine sand between your toes in summer, the many colours of the falling leaves in autumn, or the enchanting lights and the spellbinding ‘Lumagica’ in winter.
