Königsallee

Düsseldorf’s Königsallee is one of a small group of internationally famous streets that may justifiably call themselves boulevards. Affectionately called the “Kö” by Düsseldorf’s residents, attention always turns to it when people talk about Düsseldorf. It is the primary shopping street in Düsseldorf, and as its nucleus, it connects the city centre to provide a continuous shopping experience ranging from the Altstadt (Old Town) through to the Kö and all the way to Schadowstraße. If you’ve ever strolled along Konigsallee, you’ll know that shopping in Dusseldorf has a charm all of its own. Come along, see and be seen – and do some truly stylish shopping as well. Even the most extravagant wishes are fulfilled on Dusseldorf’s “Ko”.

Altstadt (Old Town)

Nowhere else in Düsseldorf can one feel the city’s heartbeat so clearly as in the Altstadt. Those who want to party, people in search of culture, or history lovers will all be equally well catered for in this area between the Rhine and Heinrich-Heine Allee that covers an area of less than half a square kilometre. This tiny space is crammed with around 260 eateries, pubs, bars, discos and restaurants, and one would be hard pressed to find the like in any other city. The Altstadt is also home to Altbier – a real Düsseldorf speciality. Auch für Kunst- und Kulturfans gehört ein Besuch in der Altstadt zum absoluten Pflichtprogramm. Die Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen, Ausstellungsort für die Malerei des 20. Jahrhunderts, die Deutsche Oper am Rhein Düsseldorf/Duisburg (beide an der Heinrich-Heine-Allee), die Kunsthalle (Grabbeplatz), Kunstakademie, Tonhalle und Ehrenhof (alle am Rheinufer) sind wesentliche Bestandteile der Düsseldorfer Kunstachse.

Brewery "Zum Schiffchen"

Brauerei Zum Schiffchen in the heart of the Altstadt (Old Town) is the oldest restaurant in Düsseldorf and considered a typical original Düsseldorf restaurant. The atmosphere, furnishings and food here are as much guarantors of originality as the blue-aproned “Köbesse” – the waiters – who “celebrate” their service with Rhenish humour and the typical Düsseldorf dialect – much to the delight of guests and travel groups from countries all across the world. The restaurant was first mentioned in 1628 and is proud to have had even Napoleon among its patrons.
