Dusseldorf is a fast-paced and fashionable city, straddling the Rhine River in western Germany. Here you'll find an eclectic mix of architecture, from historical jewels like the 13th-century St Lambertus Church and Schlossturm in the city's cobbled Altstadt, to steely modern marvels, like the cityscape-piercing Rheinturm.

    An energetic and happening city, Dusseldorf has something for absolutely every city-breaker. You'll find world-class museums like the Museum Kunstpalast, with its treasure trove of artworks, a tantalizing culinary scene, and trendy shopping haunts like Konigsallee and Schadowstrasse. And let's not forget the bar-hopping and music-bopping nightlife – the historical quarter is famous for it.
