One of the most racists places I have visited which actually is not even worth a second look. The entire area, place and feel is dirty, cheap, Western Europeans looking for cheap fun cause their economies are running out of fuel and basically can't compare the quality of people, party and fun to Southern Europe like Italy and elsewhere where...

Altstadt is the best part of Düsseldorf, without any competition. The atmosphere is very nice and most of the buildings are beautiful. I would recommend to just walk around and have something to eat at one of the many restaurants or coffee shops. Most of the restaurants are very good and you will find a good meal to a good... More

.... of Dusseldorf Altstadt as a tourist attraction. As everywhere, it's a matter of weather, company and weekday and what you are lööking for. On a Friday night, or Saturday, you will hardly find people familiar with the scene, but many visitors from neighbouring cities. However if you happen to have some hours on a late weekday morning, or at... More

The altstadt is THE place to visit if in düsseldorf. You have shops, restaurants, bars, the Rhein river etc. I recommend going both day and night as the scene completely changes when it gets dark

Düsseldorf's old town is "gemütlich" in the best way. Loads of nice bars and cafés. Try "Tante Anna" for great (and expensive) regional food and excellent wines. Visit the "Melody Bar" for the most narrow cocktail bar you've ever been to. Enjoy some "Alt" beers on the street, preferably in front of the new brewery "Kürzer" or the most traditional... More

Fabulously kept for an old cobbled town. Atmosphere day and night. Unless football mad avoid the pubs when Fortuna are playing. Just nowhere to have a quiet drink. Of course if you love busy places and football this crowd is friendly.

Paradise for lovers of really good and unique Düsseldorf beer but not the place for fine dining or decent wine selection . Pub snacks are fine to accompany the beer. Great for a boy's night out or daytime drinking.

The Old Town or Altstadt is usually the place to head for when visiting a German City and in my experience the Dusseldorf Altstadt is one of the best German ‘Old Towns’ I’ve had the pleasure to visit. It may not be packed with interesting architecture like some, although the Basilica St. Lambertus, The Old City Hall (Rathaus) and the... More

If you want to party all through the night with crazy and drunk people, this is the place to be on Friday and Saturday nights. Anything else you are probably much better off in downtown cologne.
