Dusseldorf is the lively capital of North Rhine-Westphalia. It is home to some spectacular buildings, institutions, landmarks, and shopping avenues, and is also considered a hub of art and culture.


When it was built in 1804, the 'Kö', as it is affectionately known to locals, was situated in a slightly run-down area on the edge of the city. As Dusseldorf grew, Königsallee became more central and things really took off after a face-lift at the start of the 20th Century. An underground station was opened, the pavements were widened and the street lamps, kiosks and telephone boxes were restored. Nowadays the boulevard is Dusseldorf's number one shopping street and has enhanced the city's reputation as being one of Europe's major fashion centers.

A masterpiece of modern engineering, Rheinufer Promenade was newly designed in 1995 to help ease traffic congestion in the city center. With pedestrian and cycle paths stretching 0.9 miles (1.5 kilometers) along the bank of the Rhine from Oberkasseler Bridge to the State Parliament, the street is the perfect place for a relaxing stroll. Rheinufer Promenade has also turned into a popular meeting place, lending the area a holiday-like feel on warm summer evenings. Numerous bars have outdoor terraces—the perfect place to sample an altbier (black beer) and watch the sun slowly set over the Rhine.

Schloss Benrath

Located in the village of Benrath, a suburb of Dusseldorf established in 1929, Schloss Benrath was erected between 1755 to 1770, in the middle of a spacious park bordered by the Rhine. The castle was constructed by order of the electoral Prince Carl Theodor von Pfalz-Sulzbach. Designed by Nicolas de Pigage, the residence is a fine example of the transition from late baroque to classical architecture. Its striking, salmon pink façade is embellished with an ornately carved grey colored roof. The main building contains some exquisite furniture and 18th-century paintings, while the west wing is home to the Benrath Natural History Museum. Visitors can take guided tours of this fascinating castle to gain a deeper insight into the history of Benrath.

Sometimes known as 'the longest bar in the world' Dusseldorf's Altstadt - the Old Town - contains some 200 bars, cafés and restaurants. Despite its relatively small size, the crowds flock here at the weekend, filling most of the bars. But the Altstadt isn't just for night owls, row upon row of atmospheric old townhouses have been converted into shops and boutiques offering all a discerning shopper could wish for. Culture explorers are also spoilt for choice, with places like the Hetjens Museum, Film Museum, Stadtmuseum, Heinrich Heine Institute and Palais Wittgenstein attracting visitors from far and wide.

Considered to be the oldest garden in the city, the Hofgarten is a magnificent park in the city center. Spread over 27 hectares (67 acres), this greenfield has many significant monuments and sculptures that add character to the park. Designed in keeping with English landscape styles, it has centuries-old meadows, rare trees, ponds and fountains. Dating back to the 16th Century, the Hofgarten was destroyed in the early 1800s and was restored by architect Maximilian Weyhe on Napoleon's orders. One of the key features here are the memorials honoring fallen soldiers. A stroll through this historic place will not only make one appreciate history but also nature.

Erected in 1982 and towering 240.5-metre-high (789 ft) over the city, the Rheinturm is Dusseldorf's highest building. The revolving, glass-fronted Top 180 restaurant is a great place to enjoy a glass of wine and watch the sun slowly set over the city. A viewing platform and a self-service restaurant are located one floor below. From the outside of the tower, visitors can enjoy the spectacular light sculpture which makes for the world's largest digital clock. A sight to behold as the night falls, the tower is a beacon of urban development in Dusseldorf.

K20- Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen

Built by Danish architects in 1986 to house the art collection of the state of North Rhine Westphalia, Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen is one of the city's most instantly recognizable landmarks. The collection itself was founded in 1960 when the state bought 88 paintings by Paul Klee. The main part of the collection deals with pre-war art: Fauvism, Expressionism, Cubism, the Blue Rider and Pittura Metafisica movements as well as Dadaism, Surrealism, Constructiveness, Bauhaus and de Stijl. The second section of the collection features post-1945 art, ranging from Abstract Expressionism to the work of Joseph Beuys.

Humble warehouses outlined this historic harbor but today, it is adorned with modern buildings and artistic structures designed by international architects. World-renowned companies from industries such as architecture, media, science and technology, fashion and so forth have their spectacular offices at MedienHafen.

The beautiful juxtaposition of the modern and traditional architecture, as well as culture, can be witnessed at the MedienHafen.

Located right near the center of the city, Carlplatz is one of the most prominent streets in the area. It is lined on one side by the Benrather Street, which is another famous stretch. In the area surrounding this street lie attractions like the Düsseldorfer Marionetten-Theater, and several restaurant and eateries, thus making Carlplatz a must on your list of places to visit in the city. The street is also where the weekly Farmer's Market takes place.

St. Lambertus

One of Dusseldorf's most visible landmarks is St. Lambert's Church, a Romanesque construction which boasts a leaning tower to rival that of Pisa. While countless legends tried explaining the phenomenon, the most plausible was given by the sexton: the wood was still damp when the tower was erected, so when it dried it expanded and made the tower lean. Originally built in the 13th century, the church was reconstructed in 1394 and has changed little since. St. Lambert's also contains a host of religious relics including the bones of St. Apollinaris, the patron saint of Dusseldorf.
