A quick google recommended this place and I was not disappointed. My husband and I enjoyed some great beer here and had lunch one day too. It was really tasty and a great place to try traditional German grub. Very busy at night. A popular spot with tourists and locals alike. Beer is served in small glasses and is known... More

If you want a traditional German experience this is a must do. I did not feel like I was in a tourist spot, It felt authentic and comfortable. It's not fancy, it's simple, easy and come as you are kind of spot. I will be seriously missing the German beer. This was one of the best. The food was good... More

We stumbled upon this pub purely by accident and then realized it was very authentic and famous. The bier was ordered, actually by accident, but would absolutely do it again. The only reason I don't give it a 5 is because we arrived during a very busy time for them, and they gave us a time limit by which we... More

I believe this was an authentic experience which was not created just for tourists. Alt Beer was perfect. Menu is not very wide but seems that most of people came there for beer, not for eating. So if you seek just for the beer and atmosphere, this is the right place.

The famous Uerige has "always" been there, it seems, and it hasn't changed much. A large brewery house with a rustuc charme throughout, serving Uerige, an Alt with a rather unique, slightly bitter taste. They also serve Düsseldorf-style snacks like Halve Hahn and Frikadellen. The waiters (Köbes) may seem a little grumpy at times, but according to the local narrative,... More

A must go place if you are in Düsseldorf. Not only is the beer great, but the atmosphere and the "German sushi" (raw meat with onion on wholewheat bun) are (really!) excellent. Located in the Altstadt, this place is an institution and the place to go before dinner.

Great service, great home-brewed Altbier and also a wheat beer. Do not embarrass yourself by asking for anything else! Food is good too, whether potato soup with a frankfurter on the side or half a chicken and coleslaw (okay we had chicken and chips which was not on the menu, just ask!) The place is much bigger than it seems... More

Great place to have an "Alt" after looking at the Rhein. Great atmosphere, traditional food that is not expensive in a very nice and picturesque setting. Loved every minute.
