A pleasant stroll. Lots of chances to take a break at bars and cafes to watch the world go by. A good way to pass a sunny afternoon.

Walked in City Hall and saw the most amazing iron plates all over their blue tiled walls. Had fun at all the restaurants also! Dusseldorf had very strange weather the last week of July this year. It was in the high 60's and sprinkled every couple of hours. The sun set around 10pm every night, which was cool!!

You haven't seen Düsseldorf when you haven't been to Altstadt. Numerous shops but even more pubs with outdoor tables where the famous Alt beer is being served sometimes even by the famous Kobes (typical grumpy waiter). The beer is special and honestly not my taste but is very typical for Düsseldorf. You can party all night.

Many cities have "old cities". None of them would be regretful. Fairs and business are the main reaspns for this nice city. Go Altstadt, get a pils, breathe the city...

The Cathedral was awesome. Walking the streets made you feel as though you stepped into the past. Stroll with eyes both up and down so you do not miss the special architectural and sculpted parts of the city. Take time to try local pastries, sip a beer, smell the flowers and smile at the children playing. Take comfortable shoes and... More

After a long day shopping, and near to sunset we enjoy walking in the old town between cafes and restaurants in the old style roads and the view of some old buildings.
