Düsseldorf is a city in western Germany located on the River Rhine and is the capital city of the state North Rhine-Westphalia.
Düsseldorf International Airport (DUS). Düsseldorf International Airport is the third largest airport in Germany and offers connections to 175 destinations worldwide. The airport is one of the main hubs for Air Berlin. The main airport of Düsseldorf is located about 15 kilometers away from the main railway station. It takes 12 minutes by city railway S7 or S11 to the main railway station; by car, bus or taxi about 20 minutes.
Köln Bonn Airport (CGN). 60 min drive away from Düsseldorf city centre.
Airport Weeze (NRN). Frequented by smaller, low-cost airlines flying into Düsseldorf. The airport is 80 km from Düsseldorf main railway station, by car or bus a 90 min drive. If you need to travel from Düsseldorf main airport (DUS) to Weeze Airport (NRN), Deutsche Bahn is the easiest and fastest option.
The Düsseldorf Hauptbahnhof (main station) is a major stop for Deutsche Bahn (German state railway). There's different types of trains such as S-Bahn, Regionalbahn, and Regionalexpress.
All tickets will have to be validated before departure. For the trains like Regionalbahn or Regionalexpress there's an orange machine before you go up the stairs to the platform, where you have to stamp your ticket(see picture).
Düsseldorf is connected to the following highways: A3, A44, A46, A52, A57 (via Neuss) and A59.
by local transportation
The bus, tramway and subway network Map is operated by Rheinbahn AG. There is also a suburban railway network (S-Bahn). Most destinations in Düsseldorf can be reached by local transportation. Tickets must be purchased and postmarked before using the transportation service.
Those who want to drive in the city center should be aware that it is an "environment zone" similar to that found in many other large German cities. Cars are required to have a sticker declaring the car's pollution category.
The city centre is not that large and most attractions are a walkable distance from each other.
What to see
The main tourist information office is located in Immermann-Strasse 65b. A second office is located Marktstrasse/Rheinstrasse. They offer a lot of brochures: a monthly calendar of events, a city guide and free maps with walking routes designed around a specific theme.
The city was largely destroyed in World War 2, and there were very few old buildings left. People interested in modern architecture, however, will have much to see in Düsseldorf. Also, there are many modern artworks in the public, and on Stresemannplatz Square and the Rhine Bank, there are palms, not really the first thing you'd expect to see a cold day in October.
Old town. 16-1. The Old Town of Düsseldorf is famous. Almost completely destroyed during World War 2, it was rebuilt according to historic plans on its foundation walls, which makes it look like a real historic town. Every house of the quarter, except one - see chapter “Neander Church”.
Characteristic Rhenish dishes like Düsseldorfer Senfrostbraten, „Rheinischer Sauerbraten (marinated beef with raisins), Halve Hahn (rye ban, slice of cheese, mustard and gherkin) or Ähzezupp (pea soup) are offered everywhere within the old town.
“Schneider-Wibbel-Gasse” is the name of a small lane inside the old town, connecting Bolkerstrasse and Flingerstrasse. It is packed with restaurants and bars, most of them offering Spanish-American and Latino-American food.
The Burgplatz (Castle-Square) is situated at the old town limits next to Rhine. One upon a time here was the castle of the Earls of Berg, the later duke of Jülich-Kleve-Berg. Later the castle was reconstructed to a baroque palace, which burned down in 1872.
Radschläger wolle mer blieve, wie jeck et de Mensche och drieve is the legend of the Cartwheelers' Fountain at Burgplatz. It is situated under some wonderful old plane trees. The cartwheeler is a popular symbol within Düsseldorf and cartwheeling an old tradition.
Pegeluhr and St. Lambertus Basilika
Pegeluhr. Situated at the Rhine bank this clock also shows the current water level in the river.
Düsseldorf is a stronghold of Carneval. But the main carnival runs from Carnival Monday to Ash Wednesday. If you have the chance don’t miss the parade on Carnival Monday in February. Also note that even though Carnival Monday is not a public holiday, many stores and other places effectively treat it as such.
Nacht der Museen. Once a year, like in many other German cities, a Night of Museums is organized by the City of Düsseldorf and the consulting firm Ernst & Young.
Kirmes. Between the 2nd and 3rd weekend of July there is fun fair on the banks of Rhine. You will find there roller coasters, a Ferris wheel, a flying jinny and at least a beer garden too.
Every year at the end of April thousands of runners from Germany and from all over the world come to run the Düsseldorf Marathon which is open for everyone. For participants a registration is required. Viewers are welcome every time.
