Quickly to the heart of Dusseldorf
Dusseldorf is probably not the first city you’ll think of when planning a citytrip. For many, a weekend to Dusseldorf is therefore a voyage of discovery. For years, Dusseldorf has been among the most desirable cities in the world with respect to quality of life. This city has historic districts as well as districts with modern influences and a beautiful harbour and promenade besides the Rhine. A weekend Dusseldorf offers something for everyone.
With the Welcome Card that is available in Dusseldorf, you can travel around the city for free with public transportation and you will get a lot of discount at different museums, tourist attractions and other leisure activities. Dusseldorf is located along the Rhine and you can discover the city per boat and see it from an entirely different perspective.
A majority of Dusseldorf’s historic heritage was lost during the war, but thanks to the way it was rebuilt, the city has regained much of its cosy, historic and classic look. The combination of historic and modern gives the city a certain diversity that cannot be found elsewhere. Visiting the Aldtstadt during your stay will give you an even better picture of this.
The Palace and Benrath Park
The same atmosphere can be found at the palace and park of Benrath in Dusseldorf as Versailles. Benrath Palace lies in the southern district of Dusseldorf that holds the same name and was built between 1756 and 1773 by Nicolas de Pigage. The palace is a true piece of art that combines art, landscape and nature. If you like art and historic buildings, then you will certainly want to visit this palace.
With a guide through the city
You can learn more of the city’s history and visit one of the many museums in Dusseldorf by taking a guided tour. For example, you could take a stroll through the trendy district Medienhafen, which is located besides the Rhine and is a stronghold of modern architecture and media. And if you want to go shopping you can visit the area surrounding of the King Allee.
Beer tasting Dusseldorf
Germany and beer are synonyms. A trip to Dusseldorf is therefore not complete if you haven’t tasted a Düsseldorfer Alt. Visit one of the many breweries in the old part of Dusseldorf and get acquainted with this dark, spicy type of beer.
