In all candor, this is the bar party district of Dusseldorf. There are, however, plenty of cultural sights buried among the endless cafés and bars. One such notable site is Stadterhebungs Monument which I have reviewed separately.

Yeah Altstadt is an old town. There are a lot of bars to drink a beer with your friends, but I think that's it!

Busy nightlife, can be varied, but the late night bars can be intimidating if you are a little on the feeble side. Dusseldorf, whilst the name is not the most magical, offers a great experience, fantastic shopping, is not too expensive and boasts the longest bar in the world.. what more do you want

I loved the Altstadt. It is small in area so very easy to walk around. The bars were great as was the altbier. It is picturesque with loads of people mingling in the bars and squares

We asked the concierge at our hotel where to go for a walk and for a small bite. The old town was recommended. When we returned to the hotel we asked them next time to give us a better tip. This area is nice for tourists that visit Germany the first time or so. For German visitors it is better... More

Bolker Street is something you have to have seen to believe. This German street in the old town of Duesseldorf is not something tourists would probably know existed. Pub, club, bar, pub, restaurant, take away, pub and so on all the way down the street. Life on the street gets really busy from the early evening.
