Dusseldorf Old Town (Altstadt) Tours

Dusseldorf Old Town (Altstadt)
The traditional heart of the city and one of Germany’s most famous nightlife districts, Dusseldorf’s Old Town (Altstadt) is where visitors spend the majority of their time, home to many of the city’s top attractions. As well as the scenic Rheinuferpromenade running along the waterfront and the famous Königsallee shopping boulevard just a couple of blocks east, highlights of the Old Town include the Burgplatz, with its landmark castle tower and unique City Monument; the Neander-church and Old City Hall (Rathaus), two of the only buildings still standing after WWII; and a number of museums, including the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen and the Filmmuseum.

The historic district is at its most atmospheric in the evening hours when locals and tourists gather to drink and dance at “the longest bar in the world” – the nickname given to the almost 300 bars, bier-halles and pubs that stretch throughout the area, built so close together that the bar counters are said to run from one venue to the next. There’s a huge range of nightclubs, music venues and cocktail bars to choose from, but be sure to head to one of the traditional brew pubs to sample local specialty, Altbier, a dark beer brewed in Dusseldorf since the 19th century. 

Practical Info

Dusseldorf Old Town is located along the east bank of the Rhine River in central Dusseldorf, a few blocks west of Königsallee.
Address: Dusseldorf, Germany

Whether you take a seat on the sundeck or in the saloon, a panorama cruise is worthwhile in any weather. On board thr comfortable event yacht MS RheinPoesie and the new ship MS RheinKrone you explore the city on the Rhine from the river, and that means that you enjoy views and insights which you do not have from any other angle. The Old Town, Palace Tower and Media Harbour seem to glide peacefully past, and almost incidentally you learn all kinds of facts about the turbulent history of the city, which was once a royal residence and which is now the political centre of North Rhine-Westphalia.
