Düsseldorf is a city in western Germany famous for its thriving fashion industry and art scene. It is a scenic and cultured city with a charming old town and the Rhine River running through the middle.
The best time to visit Düsseldorf depends on your preference for seasonal temperatures and activities.
The Christmas markets and winter carnival celebrations are famous and a wonderful experience if you also enjoy winter activities like ice skating. Spring is another lovely time to visit with flowers in full bloom, nice weather and outdoor markets starting that run through the summer months. Dusseldorf hosts many great festivals, so check before booking flights to see if you can time your visit to a festival like the Street Food Festival, Japan Tag or Wine and Taste Festival.
You can rent a car, but the transportation system is excellent with trains, trams and buses to take you around the city. Biking is also a popular way to get around.
Keep this in mind when you book your flight to Dusseldorf in Germany. There are many great Air Canada and Lufthansa flights to Dusseldorf Airport in Germany and other nearby European destinations.
Accommodation in Dusseldorf is easy to find with many options in every price range. Book early to find the best room rates. Here are some standout properties where you would be comfortable and well looked after.
The Fritz Dusseldorf is a modern hotel with contemporary-styled rooms. There is even a Michelin star restaurant on site. You are right near Konigsallee Boulevard for shopping and entertainment. Be sure to request a room with a balcony when booking.
Hilton Dusseldorf offers fancy and affordable rooms not far from the airport and near Golzheimer Platz tram station, so you can easily get to the city centre.
Hotel Land Gut Hohne is a spa hotel that looks just like a castle. The regal digs have stylish rooms and many facilities, including swimming pools and a bar. The countryside setting is perfect for a relaxing vacation filled with plenty of spa treatments.
The quaint streets of Altstadt, Düsseldorf’s old town, are lined with fancy cocktail bars, posh pubs and nightclubs. There are also restaurants serving every kind of food imaginable, including traditional German fare. The vibrant atmosphere makes it popular with locals and tourists who flock there every day.
St. Lambertus Church and Schlossturm (Castle Tower) both date back to the 13th century. Both are beautiful and culturally significant sights not to be missed.
Streets such as Königsallee and Schadowstrasse are lined with nice boutique shops and cafes, so spare a few hours for a shopping spree. Schadowstrasse is named after the famous German painter Wilhelm von Schadow who passed away in 1862. We wonder what he would have thought of the colourful street art and murals you see around the city, with some covering whole building exteriors.
Dusseldorf has many pretty parks and green spaces. Rheingärtchen, the garden at EKŌ-Haus and Nordpark, is one of our favourites and the perfect place for a picnic. Freizeitpark Niederheider Wäldchen is another nice park with a climbing wall, zip line, and various sporting activities. For hiking, the lush forest area of Grafenberger Wald offers a scenic trail with a panoramic view overlooking the city at the peak.
The shopping in Dusseldorf is well-known with plenty to keep every kind of shopper happy. The boulevard of Königsallee is a fashionable area filled with boutiques, and there is also excellent shopping in the areas of Altstadt, Lorettostrasse and Flingern. If you are in the market for some art or antique or just fancy window shopping, Carlstadt is your shopping paradise.
Media Harbour, also known as MedienHafen, is where you can see modern architecture, including three buildings by the famous Canadian-American architect Frank Gehry. If you like more of an old-style of building, you can admire old Art Nouveau architecture that survived the war in the Oberkassel district.
A Rhine River cruise is a great way to see the city from a new perspective. There are many tours leaving in the morning or afternoon, and you can get great photos of the scenery from aboard a luxury cruiser.
Of course, there are many beer gardens in every German city and Dusseldorf has plenty of laid-back terraces with nice views. You can’t go wrong with the local dark beer, Altbier or maybe a pint of Pils. Indulge in some currywurst or mini onion tarts (Kleine Zwiebelfladen) before you head back to your hotel. Cafes are also dotted all over the city and it’s not hard to find a quality brew since the coffee culture has hit Dusseldorf.
