Great to explore on foot, lovely shopping,bars and attractions. Plenty of cafés and friendly bars to pop in for glass of wine of a beer. Wear stout shoes as the cobbles make walking difficult in heels

Want to walk by the river? Taste a great traditional torte? Have a traditional meal and beer? Visit old churches? Discover hidden sculptures? Have a shopping spree? Enjoy beautiful houses while strolling on small, quiet, pedestrian only streets? If any or all, Dusseldorf Altstadt is for you!

It looks so pretty. The buildings and houses are all in German style and they're very well-kept. Easy to walk around and nice green areas to be.

Lots of shops, souvenirs and restaurants in all price class. Make it to the Rhine and you will find some floating restaurants/bars. A must in summer.
