Welcome to Düsseldorf
Metropolis on the Rhine
A famous Frenchman visited Düsseldorf over 200 years ago. On seeing the beautiful city, Napoleon gasped: “C’est petit Paris.” Today, Little Paris has become a dynamic yet manageably sized metropolis with international flair.
The city on the Rhine features short distances, a gigantic range of different shops, first-class hotels, award-winning restaurants, a hospitable atmosphere and all the charms a big city has to offer with none of the frantic bustle. If one nonetheless needs a little break, a stroll along the Rhine embankment promenade is the ideal way to relax. Strolling on the sunny side, one can enjoy the panoramic view of the mighty, meandering river with its three great bridges. Back in the Altstadt (Old Town), one can dive back into the lively cheer of Rhenish joie de vivre. Every conceivable delicacy is on sale at the market on Carlsplatz. Just a stone’s throw from there is the world-famous shopping street, Königsallee. It is home to international luxury labels and exclusive boutiques as well as art galleries, illustrious hotels and cafés.
Art and culture play a special role in Düsseldorf. The Kunstakademie was founded in 1773. Artists such as Joseph Beuys, Gerhard Richter and Andreas Gursky studied and taught here. Meanwhile, the Kunstsammlung NRW art collection offers offer world-class exhibitions and the Museum Kunstpalast shows paintings by artists ranging from Rubens to Kandinsky. Deutsche Oper am Rhein guarantees an outstanding opera experience, while the Tonhalle is home to the Düsseldorf Symphony Orchestra. Those who prefer it a little quieter can visit Schloss Benrath (Benrath Palace), a rococo gem with an imposing park. The MedienHafen features exciting modern architecture, most notably the striking buildings designed by Frank O. Gehry, who was also responsible for the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao.
