The heart of Düsseldorf – the Old Town – beats across half a square kilometre. Year-on-year, the narrow streets between the Rhine and Heinrich-Heine-Allee cast their spell on the many visitors. National and international restaurants, popular bars and quaint breweries create the inviting atmosphere and countless shops entice you into a shopping spree. The attentive visitor can also discover a piece of Düsseldorf’s history just by wandering around. The St. Lambertus church, the Burgplatz, the historic City Hall and the Jan Wellem equestrian statue are just several of the many ports of call. Museums, such as the Kunstsammlung NRW (NRW Art Collection), provide cultural highlights. After a busy day strolling around the Old Town, why not go and relax on the Rhine promenade on the edge of the Old Town? You can see the best sides of the Rhine and the picturesque Oberkassel district on the opposite bank from here.
