Picture-postcard perfect, this Town Hall in Old Town (Altstadt) Dusseldorf was built in the 1500's and looks like it has not diminished in its commanding presence and its old world charm.

A nice town hall that is worth checking out as part of your visit to Dusseldorf's Old Town. Good spot for photos. Very nice at Christmas with a nice market by it.

The old heart of a city that has been extensively modernised since 1945. Dominated by an impressive equestrian statue of Johann Wilhelm (Jan Willem) II, Elector Palatine (19 April 1658 – 8 June 1716). It is surrounded on two sides by very comfortable street cafés.

A very interesting building in the centre of the Altstadt and quite a hub for events. There are beautiful flowers hung from the windows and the whole place gives a feeling of order

We spied this several times - it's very pretty at night, as it's lit up. Worth a few snaps!

A real jewel in the heart of Old Town (Altstadt). Make sure you visit it during morning as it closes on afternoon.
