Visit Düsseldorf by train und go shopping along the Königsallee
This fascinating city in Germany knows like no other how to combine serious business and international trade with having fun.
Traditional Carnival celebrations in Düsseldorf
Located in North Rhine-Westphalia, Düsseldorf is a cosmopolitan city that is renowned as an international business centre. The Messe Düsseldorf organises many trade shows, and five Fortune Global 500 companies have their headquarters here. The city is also home to excellent restaurants and countless museums. However, there is also another inspiring side to Düsseldorf: the city has its own beer, Altbier, and a great music and nightlife scene. Like many other cities in Germany, it is famous for its Carnival celebrations, which start every year on 11 November at 11:11 a.m. and end on Ash Wednesday. Two days earlier, on Rose Monday, a huge parade meanders through the streets of Düsseldorf. Dress in your craziest outfit and have fun!
Luxury shopping and a restaurant in the sky
Düsseldorf is a shopping mecca and boasts Germany's busiest shopping street, Königsallee. A boat tour on the Rhine River is a great way to take in the Düsseldorf skyline, dominated by the Rheinturm. This telecommunications tower stands 240.5 metres tall and houses a revolving restaurant and an observation deck for a beautiful view over Düsseldorf and the surrounding areas. The city's Botanical Garden is a must-see for nature lovers, who also shouldn't miss Düsseldorf's central Hofgarten park. Both sites are free and worth a visit! The city has an excellent public transport network and is well connected by Deutsche Bahn with short-haul trains to nearby towns and long-haul trains to many other German and international cities.Book now
