5 good reasons to go to Düsseldorf
To see / do
Culture and history
Düsseldorf from the sky
Just like Berlin, Düsseldorf has a TV Tower - the Rheinturm. It rises about 170 m off the ground and welcomes visitors for a 360° view. You can have a drink or a bit to eat in the exceptional bar-restaurant. At night, the side of the tower displays the time. It is the largest digital clock in the world.
In the new port
The Medienhafen is an old port, now turned into a trendy area where offices and bars mingle. Renowned architects such as Frank Gehry and Steven Holl brought a futuristic touch to it, whilst preserving the port-side feel. Guided tours of the Medienhafen will take you to the most surprising buildings.
A wonderful treasure is hidden away to the North of Düsseldorf - the Imperial Kaiserpfalz Kaiserswerth palace. The architectural complex built under Henry III and later owned by Barbarossa is now in ruins. Yet the remains are still extremely impressive. The digs make it possible to imagine the site’s overall structure.
An exhilarating evening at the Biergarten
Beer-lovers cannot miss out on this amazing opportunity! In Düsseldorf, like elsewhere in Germany, there are biergarten, or “beer gardens”. Long tables are set up to welcome everyone. Beer is obviously at the forefront, served with local dishes. Enjoy in moderation!
From Düsseldorf to Japan
What if you also bought a ticket to Japan by travelling to Düsseldorf? There is a large Japanese community living there. Head to Stadtmitte, the city’s Asian district, for a fun night out on the town. Opt for a complete change of scenery in the karaoke or sake bars.
A German casserole
To cook a delicious sauerbraten, meat (beef or poultry) is marinated in vinegar, wine, vegetables and spices. After three days, the meat is cooked in a sauce made from the marinade to which raisins are added. Very similar to the French “bœuf bourguignon” or other kinds of casseroles, sauerbraten is served with cabbage and potatoes.
Speckpfannkuchen are half-way between savoury pancakes and omelettes. Speckpfannkuchen batter is heated in a frying pan just like pancakes, with bacon. They can they be folded or rolled, and filled with cream for instance.
