Dusseldorf Travel Information

Dusseldorf is a fascinating blend of old and new, with 700 years of history and tradition, Dusseldorf boasts a vibrant Old Town and is also known as one of Germany’s major business centres, and a the leader of the country’s fashion world. Located on the banks of the Rhine, Dusseldorf is a charming place to visit, with great shopping in elegant boutiques, the famous Goethe Museum, and hundreds of bars and restaurants in which to relax in the evenings. For panoramic views across the city, climb the TV tower, and on clear days you can see as far as Cologne.
  Dusseldorf impresses with boundary-pushing architecture, zinging nightlife and an art scene to rival many higher-profile cities. It’s a posh and modern city that seems all buttoned-up business at first glance: banking, advertising, fashion and telecommunications are among the fields that have made North Rhine–Westphalia's capital one of Germany’s wealthiest cities. Yet all it takes is a few hours of bar-hopping around the Altstadt, the historical quarter along the Rhine, to realise that locals have no problem letting their hair down once they shed those Armani jackets.
