    A stroll through the Altstadt

    by yooperprof Written Aug 17, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    tried and true. . .

    Favorite thing: An old bicycle underneath a gas lamppost - what a cliche subject for a photograph! Every American who has ever travelled to Europe has taken this picture!

    But a stroll through Altstadt will make even the most jaded traveller (certainly NOT a tourist) succumb to the charms of Old Europe.

    An unexpected daytrip

    by Helga67 Updated Mar 1, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: I never thought I would see Duesseldorf this soon. A friend asked me to join her to an exhibition of a Flemish painter in K21, a museum in Duesseldorf.

    We left early in the morning and drove about 3 hours to this city. We visited the museum in the morning and had a nice walk around the old town in the afternoon. Unfortunately, it was a very misty and dark day, and we didn't have enough time to fully enjoy this city, but this daytrip gave me a good idea of what Duesseldorf has to offer. I need to come back one sunny day.

    oldest house

    Favorite thing: In a small square in the altstadt is this lovely old building - Schlosser Alt - said to be the oldest building here. Note its date at the top of the building - 1288. Loved the brick syled edge to the house.

    In front of the Town Hall

    by AndyRG Updated Dec 18, 2002

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: This is the statue of Jan Wellem Reiterdenkmal on horseback at the Rathausplatz (square of Rathaus=Town Hall). At the old part of the city, there are many historical buildings and... hundreds of bars. You can also visit numerous interesting places, as the Opera House, a lot of museums (e.x. Goethe Museum), theaters, Aquazoo at Nordpark, Kaiserwerth (a historical city quarter with ruins of a palace), Hofgarten etc.

    Sailing?

    Having a rest...

    Favorite thing: The city offers a variety of memorable sights, the best one is a visit at the streets of the old city. This boat doesn't... sleep at the industrial port, but at the heart of this charming "longest bar in the world"... Its advantage is the location of it on the banks of Rhine.

    Favorite thing: Take the time to really explore the Altstadt. Not just a quick run though or run for beer (though that is fun as well). I looked for and found new places, stautes, views my first four or five visits - and still run into an occasional new treat in the Altstadt.

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Visit the Altstadt. It calls itself Europe's largest bar, cannot really disagree... it's great fun!

    Fondest memory: Has to be a lazy Sunday afternoon spent in the Altstadt and along by the Rhine drinking and people watching. Dusseldorf and its people are generally relaxed and very friendly.

    Another Fountain

    famous fountain

    Favorite thing: This was another favourite fountain of mine in Dusseldorf. Each side of it depicts a famous person who has contributed to the history of the city. On this side in the pic it was Napoleon.

    Discovery walks

    by DanielF Written Jun 24, 2003

    Favorite thing: Walking in the streets of the Altstadt you will find many details that will catch your attention, like these classical statues that turn a grey concrete wall into a photographic motif.

    Wandering in the old streets

    by DanielF Updated Jun 12, 2003

    Favorite thing: Düsseldorf's old town is certainly not the most picturesque urban area in Germany, but here you will find anything you need to be entertained during your visit in Rhineland.
