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.
