The old town of Dusseldorf is a must see attraction for every visitor. It is unique as it links the Konigsalle with the river Rhine. A picturesque old town that is full of live especially at night with all its shops, restaurants and bars. Great place to socialize and eat. It has a great atmosphere to it and the views... More

Loved it. Lots of great people watching. Tons of places to eat and drink. Old world charm galore when you quit watching people and pay attention to the architecture. Tell me I have to move there tomorrow and I'd be tickled pink.

A mix of bars, restaurants and entertainment, a little bit hustle bustle but good atmosphere. Every type of food you can think of from German to Lebanese food.

I spent a weekend in Duss recently and made it an aim to spend the evenings in the Altstadt. It is a great place to hang out, explore the bars, cafes and restaurants and just chill out amongst all the people having fun.

I loved this part of the city because it is trendy and is near everything. You can enjoy beautiful views, buildings, restaurants and shoppings. There are many options from €1.60 (currywurst) or €10 (Altbeer mit wurst) to €30.
