Most Viewed Things to Do in Düsseldorf

  • 1. Old Town - Altstadt

    4.5 out of 5 stars

  • 2. Rheinturm

    Düsseldorf's slightly surreal municipal Rheinturm, towers above the city like an electric blue funnel standing on a stretched stem in a similar mould to Berlin's Fernsehturm. The tower was completed...

  • 3. Königsallee - Kö

    Not being into high-end shopping, luxury hotels or being a fashion victim, wandering Koningsallee didn't much appeal to me. Nevertheless, I did appreciate the way master builder Huschberger managed,...

  • 4. St. Lambertus Church

    4 out of 5 stars

    This is probably the oldest building still standing in Duesseldorf and thus, for me, by far the most interesting. I had to cut my visit to its interior short because an unexpected Mass began (I think...

  • 6. Gehry Buildings

    This very modern architecture is just a short walk from the Rhine Tower. Judging by the apparent lack of occupancy, these offices/appartments are not to everyone's taste - but in my opinion they are...

  • 10. Hofgarten

    4 out of 5 stars

    Hofgarten is the most central and biggest park in Dusseldorf. What made me the biggest impression was an alley with illuminated benches. Actually there were fluorescent lights in each edge of the...

  • 14. Stadttor - City Gate

    I wasn't able to take a good photograph of the Stadttor due to the bright sunlight when I was there, but it is a fantastic structure. You can see the top half of it here, framed between two of the...

  • 15. Town Hall - Rathaus

    German town halls, or Rathaus, are always worth a visit to for their architectural grandeur. The town hall in Dusseldorf dates back to 1573 and can be found on Marktplatz, in the heart of the old...

  • 16. Neuer Zollhof - New Customshouse

  • 20. Standehaus - K21 Art Museum

    I have to be honest and say that I did not actually go into K21 art museum. The entrance fee is a pricey 12 euro and, although I like art, i had neither the time nor the inclination to make the best...
