How to Spend 2 Days in Düsseldorf

How to Spend 2 Days in Düsseldorf

Two days in Düsseldorf gives you enough time to explore this modern city’s major landmarks, including the Old Town (Altstadt), as well as pursue your own interests, from shopping to learning more about the local art scene. Here are some suggestions for how to best spend your 48 hours in Düsseldorf.

Day 1: City Sightseeing

Morning: One of the best ways to get oriented in the city is to climb aboard the Düsseldorf hop-on hop-off bus for a tour of the city’s top attractions. If you’re up for something a little different, zip off on a guided Segway tour instead.

Afternoon: This afternoon, lace up your shoes for a guided exploration of the birthplace of altbier, a sweet dark beer favored in this part of Germany. Head to several of the city’s most popular microbreweries to sample some brews, and get insider tips from your guide on what to see, drink, and do for the rest of your trip.

Night: After a day of sightseeing and beer drinking, tame your appetite with a traditional German meal. Opt for a local specialty, such as sauerbraten, potato pancakes, Grünkohlessen (kale, sausage, and potatoes), or Himmel und Erde (“heaven and earth”: black pudding, apple sauce, and mashed potatoes). You’ll never look at meat and potatoes the same way again.

Day 2: Follow Your Interests

Morning: Now that you’ve had a sample of what the city has to offer, today’s your chance to explore in greater depth. Start with a morning cruise along the Rhine River. Bring your camera to capture the Düsseldorf waterfront in the morning light.

Afternoon: Take this afternoon as an opportunity to check out one of Düsseldorf’s museums or other attractions. Art lovers may opt to explore the post-WWII collection at the North Rhine–Westphalia Art Collection (Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen), while families might want to visit the aquarium Sea Life Oberhausen. Alternatively, browse the high-end designer shops along Königsallee, the area’s most famous shopping street.

Night: Finish off your trip with a bang during a guided pub crawl through the Altstadt, known as the longest bar in the world. A local guide will take you to some of the best bars and historic beer taverns for an unforgettable night of fun and new friends.
