Nice old town that is worth visiting if in Dusseldorf. Some pretty buildings as well as some nice cafes, bars and restaurants. Very good nightlife.

So many bars and restaurants. In the evening, you can turn a corner and go from no-one around to street after street of people dining and enjoying a drink in one of the many bars. During the day it's pleasant to walk around and take in the scenery and the cuture. A must see!

It's a tourist destination, but even the locals seem to hang out here! The Altbier is delicious and most of the places we ate were good.

For all the Altstadts I've seen, this one wasn't a highlight, but it was quaint, especially at night. We had a little trouble finding it, as we were walking and passed through the shopping district which seemed to go on forever. Plenty of nice cafes and restaurants make sitting and people watching a pleasure.

Wonderful place to visit. Place of the longest bar table of the world, where you can drink bier of the 5 local Braueries (local breweries). There are too many history there to learn. I suggest the guided tour of the city - 90 min walk by the Altstad.

The old town is full of small cobbled streets with some great restaurants and bars and shopping.. The main strip down to the Rhine can be very lively, especially at the weekends. Well worth the trip.
