If you want a lively night out get a taxi down to the old town where there are two streets with bar after bar after bar and food after food after food.This is noisy and such a good laugh.Any group of men or women would love these streets, its like the bigg market in newcastle.

Liked all about the old town...very romantic place if travelling as couple. We travelled with ladies only and that also is a blast in a city like Dusseldorf. The old Town had allot of character.

A must visit area in Dusseldorf. Longest bar in the world. One pub after the other, all kinds of food, and great scenery. Easy to get to, but don't drink and drive.

Really lively area on the banks of the Rhine; plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from, very busy and noisy at night. You need to try the Alt Beir, very strong so don't have too many. The are adjacent, on the promenade is also worth visiting, again lots of bars and restaurants.

Old Town was quaint with plenty of bars, restaurants and shops. The train or subway goes directly there. It is a good place to people watch. We were told that Dusseldorf is 3rd in crime stats in Germany. Lots of pick pockets. Wear your backpack in the front and just be aware. We had no problem.

This area was wall to wall bars with some excellent restaurants as well. Would recommend Auberge, the rock bar on Boklerstrasse. Great bar with cracking music.

The old town buzzes at night with numerous pub and restaurants. Loveley riverside walk. You'll never starve or die of thirst here - the place to sample Altbier
