Cheap flights to Dusseldorf
Modern and medieval, exhilarating and relaxing, Dusseldorf is a city of contradictions that will have you wanting to come back again and again.
Back in the 14th century, the people of the small town of Dorf were famous for inventing the cartwheel. Today the locals of the now much bigger city of Dusseldorf don’t practice gymnastics so much, preferring instead to enjoy the fast life of this city of trade and cultural goings-on.
A modern city in every way, Dusseldorf’s architecture is edgy and avant-garde, swooping at you from all angles. This is a place where sharp-suited workers zip between meetings and international jet setters attend some of the world’s largest trade fairs. If you’re after a pace that is both lively and exhilarating, day or night, then this could be the town for you.
Discover Düsseldorf the petrol-head way on a VW Beetle or Beach Buggy tour. The 90 minute self-drive tour follows a guide in convoy, with information on the route and the city's sights supplied by radio. You'll need a valid driving licence and to be over 23. Enquire at the tourist information office.
Carnival is Düsseldorf's fifth season', filling the grey late winter days with colour, fun and frivolity. The highlight is the mammoth Rosenmontag procession on February 27, when carnival floats poking fun at current events wind their way through the city's streets.
Blumenstrasse is the place to go in Düsseldorf for exquisite men's shoes - from Prime Shoes' calf leather creations at number 11-15 to the hand-crafted, Goodyear-welted leather shoes at Shoepassion, just a few doors away at number 9.
