Getting Around Düsseldorf by Bicycle
The bicycle is being seen more and more as an everyday means of transport. In Düsseldorf the number of cyclists around the city has grown considerably in recent years.
That's why bicycle travel is being focussed on and encouraged as an important aspect of municipal transport planning. As well as constructing and maintaining cycle paths this also includes developing city-wide cycle path networks.
Düsseldorf has the ideal conditions for cyclists. Favourable topographical conditions and short distances are what's needed for cycling, in everyday life and for pleasure. Sights throughout the entire city, local destinations for day trips and a multitude of cultural and social facilities can be reached by bike with ease.
