I literally stumbled into this area and was so pleased to find it so lovely. The outdoor market is a great place to get fresh produce and eat lunch. People are very friendly and helpful. The streets and shops in the old town are charming and the riverside with its grand views is worth the visit.

So many shops and so good prices! Düsseldorf is always a favorite of mine. The old town is great for shopping. It is all walking streets and shops, cafes and restaurants.

Went there to see the most happening place in Dusseldorf. And it didn't fail my expectations. The Old Town offers plenty of bars and people were just sitting outside, chatting over the old beers, or having meals. It was packed. But the ambience was really good. Not to mention the nightlife here was very lively. You can hop from one... More

Willich is a beautiful little town with lots of bars, restaurants and ice cream parlours. The church on the market square is beautiful and there is an interesting statue of trolls at it's rear. The people are very friendly and I highly recommend a visit the second week of July for their Schutzenfest celebrations.

pleasant assortment of places to eat and drink, buildings restored but not too obvious about it, good on a warm day/evening for strolling.
