Known for its high quality of life, Dusseldorf offers fascinating places to see and things to do. Located on the banks of the River Rhine, it's an elegant city that is world-famous for its fashion and trade fairs. Here are the Top 5 Must Do's on your trip to Dusseldorf.

1: Visit Altstadt

Altstadt is Dusseldorf's old town, and known as the world’s longest bar. Dusseldorf’s native beer, Altbier, is plentiful. Find more than 250 bustling pubs, home-brew taverns, restaurants and cafes within walking distance. Shoppers and fashionistas will delight in the rows of shops and boutiques that were converted out of old-style houses.

Best of all, you don’t have to worry about traffic while you explore Altstadt on foot. Traffic flows underground through the Rhine embankment tunnel, so pedestrians can walk the Rhine promenade while admiring the views of the River Rhine, the Rhine tower and the beautiful city of Dusseldorf. If you have extra time, choose from several historic museums along the Altstadt.

2: Go Shopping

Königsallee, which is referred to simply as Kö by locals, is the traditional fashion center for Dusseldorf, and presents many high-end fashion stores. Also ideal for pedestrians, the Kö offers a new promenade that is two kilometers long. You can see all the latest European styles while walking from store to store on the promenade.
