One of the cities visited whilst staying in Mulheim ad Ruhr. Easily accesible by train. A long walk from railway station to the river, thankfully very flat for walking. Beautiful architecture and stunning buildings. Worth a visit.

Beautiful town where you can casually walk around, try some local food, drink and buy souvenirs. I was a little surprised to learn that most shops are closed at 8:00pm. If you're there for business you wont have much time for shopping. Places for eating and drinking are not an issue tho.

A central spot in the Alt Stadt and with the annual start of Karnival beginning on 11/11 (11 November) at 11:11 AM with a small celebration by the City Hall. I say small though, the entire square fills with revelers. Of course the main Karnival heats in the Rhineland two weeks before and ends on the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday... More

It depends on WHERE and WHEN you go there. In the evening/ night time you will meet bunches of young men. Drunk and aggressive (and dressed in "funny" costumes - if it's a bachelors party). Apart from that it's a very nice place, especially away from the main streets. You should go there on your Düsseldorf trip.

If you will visit the lovely city of Dusseldorf the old city is a must to see. Lots of selections for food, drinks and monuments. Nice to walk around mostly during the day as the night the place is quite packed.

A lively part of Düsseldorf. We went there on Saturday. Coincidentally, there was a French festival along the river with boots after boots of champagne, cheeses, pizza, and cold cut for us to enjoy while sitting on the sun.

Cozy places, nice to walk around and do shopping or going to the cafes or homebreweries. Sitting outside, there is always something to see.
