Beautiful architecture with huge amount of bright red geraniums covering the outer walls. Useful free maps and guides available, and splendid free toilets!

In Germany almost every city has got a very attractive Rathaus. Düsseldorf in not an exemption. This building is from the 16. century and all the surrounding is very interesting.

The one is Dusseldorf has an air of old world royalty and the cities banners flying all around really makes the scene look sharp. I found myself taking pictures of it over... More

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.
