What to do in Düsseldorf

Walk the Rheinuferpromenade

Düsseldorf was built on a river – but it wasn’t until a main road was submerged under its banks in the late 20th century that promenading along the Rhine became a real tourist attraction. Linking Altstadt to MedienHafen, the Rheinuferpromenade is lined with cafes and lounges, and the perfect place to watch Düsseldorf life go by.

Visit art galleries

It might have been founded and funded by commerce, but Düsseldorf has more than 100 galleries and is one of the most artistic cities in Germany. Start at the magnificent Museum Kunstpalast, which has five museums under one roof offering everything from international touring exhibitions to contemporary photography and glasswork.

Stroll down Königsallee

Known by locals as the Kö, Königsallee is not just Düsseldorf’s main shopping street, with big brand stores, boutiques and jewellers all vying for your attention. It’s also a beautiful boulevard with a stretch of water running down its centre, lined with luxury hotels.

See the Old Town

It’s incredible to think that Altstadt isn’t actually that old at all – it was ruined during the Second World War and completely rebuilt. But it’s still a wonderfully atmospheric square kilometre full of lounges and restaurants, as well as home to a lot of Düsseldorf’s cultural attractions, including museums, an opera house and various theatres.

Feel the future

In the past 20 years, Düsseldorf has given internationally recognised architects such as Frank O Gehry a blank slate to redevelop the harbour area and the result is fascinating. Beautiful restaurants and hotels attract a younger set in MedienHafen, while the older refurbished buildings entice history buffs.

Explore Kaiserswerth

Exploring the Baroque houses and the ruins of Emperor Friedrich Barbarossa’s Royal Palace at Kaiserswerth just north of Düsseldorf is a lovely way to spend the day. Combine it with a boat tour up the Rhine from the old town to get the full effect of this pretty part of town, with its easy-going cafes and wide avenues.

Where to eat in Düsseldorf

Back to top

Zum Schlüssel (German)

It’s not mandatory to drink in Germany’s atmospheric halls – in fact, they’re often just as popular for their food. Hearty German cuisine such as steaks, meatloaf and goulash are served up with little refinement but a lot of heart and soul. If you want to see how the Germans enjoy an evening out, Zum Schlüssel is the place to start.

The Victorian (European)

The most centrally located of Düsseldorf’s Michelin-starred restaurants, the Victorian is versatile (it also boasts a bistro for those with less expensive tastes). Matthias Hein’s seasonal menu includes a range of expertly cooked dishes ‘from sea to field’ served in an elegant dining room.

Nagaya (Japanese)

It’s a little known fact that Düsseldorf is home to the third largest Japanese community in Europe, which is why it’s no surprise that Chef Yoshizumi Nagaya set up this fantastic restaurant that bears his name. It has a Michelin star thanks to a magnificent tasting menu that features everything from sushi to lamb dishes.

Münstermanns Bistro Kontor (German/European)

Ginseng (Korean)

Berens Am Kai (European)

If you’re staying at Hyatt Regency at the Harbour, you could eat at its fine Dox restaurant – or you could stroll across the water to Berens Am Kai, a buzzy place offering modern and classic menus. Both are brilliantly designed by Holger Berens, although the atmospheric setting and wonderful views are reason enough to visit.
