  • Schluessel: My favourite Alt

    by sabsi Updated Aug 12, 2003

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Mick and Tina in the Schluessel

    This huge brewpub in the old town offers great fruity altbier (my favourite!) and a nice brewpub atmosphere - outside and inside! I especially love the mixture of old and young, rich and poor in these places! And the fried potatoes are to die for!!!

    Dress Code: Come as you are.

  • Uerige: The tourist attraction: Uerige

    Classic Uerige

    A traditional old brewpub in Düsseldorf's old town and one of its main tourist attractions. This place is always crowded, no matter whether you come on Sunday afternoon or Friday night.

    Waiters (who are called "Köbes" here) are grumpy but son't worry. It's part of their image and the Uerige wouldn't be the same without them...

    The beer brewed by Uerige has kind of a strong taste, not my favourite but after a few beers you get used to it!

    Dress Code: None. Everybody goes here - young, old, rich, poor .. everybody!

    Longest bar in the world

    Altstadt

    Yes, I know you have heard about this slogan with which the old city promotes itself as a tourist destination, so I will not insist too much on it. I will just say that it seems a bit exaggerated to me, in spite of the high number of bars and the young crowd that fills its streets every weekend. But the one who thought this motto out, had not seen a lot of this world, I think.

    Anyway, let me be frank and tell you what I prefer to when I am in Düsseldorf and want to go out: I drive to Cologne ! ;-)

    The longest bar in the world

    It's full of bars and pubs (more than 260 of them, just choose one!...) People call it 'the longest bar in the world'.. and everytime I was there - no matter whether it was a friday or in the middle of the week - this place was busy busy busy!!

    Bolkerstrasse

    Altstadt (old part of downtown Düsseldorf)
    The Düsseldorf nightlife concentrates mainly around the pedestrianised old part of the city. Bolkerstrasse with its many bars, breweries, cafes, nightclubs, restaurants and fast-food outlets is also called the longest bar in the world. One look at the picture will tell you why. The favourite passtime in Düsseldorf is either to sit outside a pub in Bolkerstrasse and check out everybody walking past, or to walk past the people sitting outside a pub in Bolkerstrasse and get yourself checked out.

    "Ürige" Brewery

    by TinyTuck Updated Sep 8, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Outside the ��rige

    The 'Ürige' in the Altstadt is the oldest brewery of Düsseldorf and only serves Ürige-Altbier, water or apple juice, and overly expensive typical German dishes. It´s a place for the typical Düsseldorfers and tourists, the age average is pretty high.
    It's a good place either to start or to end an evening / night in the Altstadt.

    Uerige: Dussledorfs Most Famous...

    Mural Interior Of Uerige

    This is one of if not THE most famous bar in Dusseldorf. The interior is quite unique with its mural walls.
    Like many German bars, it's quite a labrynth inside. I'm always amazed how much room (and how MANY rooms) there are in some of these places.

    Dress Code: Anything goes again, I'd say!

    Altstadt: The Longest Bar In The World...

    by steventilly Written Sep 5, 2002
    Enjoying a drink at schl��ssel

    Dusseldorf has the nickname of "the longest bar in the world" because of the sheer number and density of the bars that pack the old town (Altstadt).
    They cram together around the streets of this quarter, and maybe the busiest of those streets is bolker strasse.
    You get quite an eclectic mix of people covering most age groups and ranging from smart business gents to scruffy oiks like us.

    Dress Code: Anything really, maybe it depends from bar to bar, but you shouldn't have much trouble anywhere.

    Any place in the old city

    by Gili_S Updated Jul 9, 2003

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I was here in the summer and it was looking like festival all over the old city. Any place is a "promise of pleasure ®" & good beer & food.

    Dress Code: What code? in that heat, keep it as less as possible.
