WELCOME TO DÜSSELDORF

A city with heart and soul

Düsseldorf is a vibrant city on the Rhine River with a buzzing fashion and art scene. There’s so much to see and do here, as you wander down the old town’s pretty alleys, past the revamped harbour and the Rhine Tower and along the Königsallee shopping street. And the friendly locals are always ready to greet you with a smile.

 
 

Up the Rhine Tower

The Rhine Tower is Düsseldorf’s most famous landmark. At 250.5 metres, it’s the tallest building in the city and the tenth tallest television tower in Germany. Provided you’re not afraid of heights, you can enjoy a magnificent view of the city from the viewing platform. On a clear day, you can see the mountains and even Cologne in the distance. If you fancy a bite to eat at a height, the restaurant is 172.5 metres in the air. The best bit is that it rotates around its own axis once every hour.

 
 

The green heart of the city

Dating back to 1769, the Hofgarten is Germany’s oldest public garden. It spans a total area of 27.73 hectares, from the northern end of 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 escape the busy pace of life in the city centre for a while.

 
 
 

Calling all architecture enthusiasts

Silos and warehouses have been replaced with building complexes designed by renowned architects from all over the world in the city’s Medienhafen neighbourhood. The curved buildings here are home to all kinds of companies. The old quay walls, steps and railway tracks now listed as being historically important are what gives the harbour its unique charm. We highly recommend going on a guided tour, as there’s no better way to appreciate the juxtaposition between the preserved old buildings and the modern architecture.

 
 

18th century splendour and grandeur

Benrath Palace is a majestic building boasting parks and gardens near the Rhine River in the south of Düsseldorf. It is a fine example of Rococo architecture, which we don’t actually see that much of these days. If you’re keen to learn how the aristocracy once lived and explore the world of gardening and nature during that period, we would recommend taking an exclusive tour of the palace.
