After reading some reviews I was not sure if it was worth the time to go but I am so glad I did. This area is a lively, fun, interesting area. I loved the scenery along the river, the old buildings, the shopping, the eating. A great place to browse through.

At least now in february it seems to be crowded with locals. That gives the authenticity which is sometimes missing in another old towns in the world. Not overpriced which was also good surprise. Using DusseldorfCard it is even inexpensive to visit museums and use public transport.

We spent a couple of days in Düsseldorf in february. There was the carnival. When we saw all that people in their costums it was great. Not as in the style of Rio or Venise but more popular one. Actually everyone was in fancy dress, old and young people, kids, pets... So fun. Then, we arrived to Altstadt and the... More

This is legendary "bar street". This place have also old beer brewery's and you can also get really good food from those. Beer in Düsseldorf (alt) is really good! It is really worth to go here if you are in Düsseldorf.

Great time to visit Duesseldorf. We were able to go to Carneval for a couple of days. A fun experience. Everyone is having a good time; costumes, music, food and of course beer.

The old town in dusseldorf is well worth a look and is small enough to be done in a day. Great brew houses and restaurants are everwhere and shopping streets are all around the city.. Highly recommend a day here

This is the place to visit if you want to try a domestic ale beer and some roasted pork....... Visit the Killepitsch store, the local herb drink which is also unique!

Went here last June when the World Cup was on for a 4 day stay in Dusseldorf. We'd heard about the old town and spent many hours walking around. There are hundreds of authentic bars of all shapes and sizes set within the pedestrian area of the city which is right next to the river side. The staff in all... More
