    • Carnival

      The fifth season
      Along with Cologne and Mainz, Düsseldorf is one of the strongholds of the German carnival. Also known as the «fifth season», it starts at 11.11 am on 11.11 with the symbolic awakening of the imaginary figure of Hoppeditz, and ends with his burial on Ash Wednesday of the next year. Numerous balls, events and meetings are held during this time, the highlight of Düsseldorf’s carnival being the «Rosenmontagszug», the «Rose Monday Parade» – the third biggest one in Germany – on the Monday before Ash Wednesday.
    • St. Lambertus

      It is impossible to imagine the skyline of the city without the tower of Düsseldorf, which has been crooked ever since being struck by lightning in 1815. Since the wood used for its reconstruction warped as it dried out, the church was unfortunately left with a tower with a bend in it. However, the Düsseldorfers have always loved it, and it has become a genuine landmark of the city. The church in the Old Town has an abundance of history and is well worth a visit.

    • Kaiserswerth

      Historic and picturesque
      The suburb of Kaiserswerth in the north of Dusseldorf has a historic centre with Baroque buildings that enchants and delights visitors. The impressive ruins of the «Kaiserpfalz» of the infamous Emperor Friedrich Barbarossa are right on the banks of the Rhine. A delightful beer garden close to the ruins is perfect for a refreshing drink. A boat ride back to the Old Town is a delightful way to return.

    • MedienHafen

      Popular quarter
      The atmosphere in the MedienHafen on the Rhine is amazing. With the modern new buildings and innovatively restored listed warehouses, some parts of Dusseldorf’s harbour are now a popular and attractive quarter for living, working, shopping and going out. Enjoy a gentle stroll along the quay walls, and visit one of the cafés, bars or restaurants for some refreshment. A good tip: the Meerbar.

    • Titus

      Casual style
      A skating shop with style. Titus has sporty and casual labels such as Bench, Carharrt, Converse, mazine and Zimtstern. Shopping in a relaxed atmosphere. Even as a non-skater you'll find plenty here that appeals (although you’ll be hard pressed to find some stilettos).

    • The «Kö»

      Luxury shopping street with flair
      This shopping street probably has the most varied and most exclusive offer of any in Germany. Fashion, gastronomy, hotels, art and culture – everything that is anything can be found here. High-quality jewellery shops and luxury labels such as Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Hermès are strung together like pearls on a necklace. The popular young fashion store Abercrombie & Fitch attracts teens to the «Kö». However, the boulevard is just as appealing for its architecture as it is for the luxury, and appeals for the characteristic city moat in the middle with its generous array of plane trees and chestnuts.

    • Butik

      Individual and sustainable
      Not Carlsplatz and not the «Kö», but despite that – or perhaps because of it – an absolute fashion tip for fans of individual and unused labels. The selections are notable for Scandinavian brands such as Baum und Pferdgarten, Black Lily, Filippa K and Custommade. An absolute must for discovering the city’s enthusiasm for fashion – far from the mainstream.

    • Identitá Italiana

      Fashion hotspot
      Dress with the same style confidence as the Italians. That’s probably what the name of this trendy and popular fashion Mecca is telling us. And it’s not difficult with the labels that are presented here, so coolly and so prettily. Whether Patrizia Pepe, See by Chloé, Nudie, Jeffrey Campbell or Woolrich, there are carefully selected, exclusive items by them all here. There is a serious risk of becoming addicted.

    • hab + gut

      Home living accessories
      Whether decorative kitchen accessories by House Doctor, pretty dishes by Bloomingville, amusing items by kikkerland or unusual things by «SUCK UK» – you’ll always find something at hab + gut to take along either as a gift for someone else or to find a home for in your own home.

    • Trendy Flingern

      Away from the mainstream
      Düsseldorfers speak of North and South Flingern, with the northern part being of particular appeal to the city’s young and trendy. There are lots of little shops, cafés, pubs and bars, plus galleries and even a small theatre. The Ackerstrasse is particularly well known, and home to the popular Trinkhalle, the Kaffeepiraten and the shopping gem that is Butik.

    • Carlsplatz

      Prettiest market
      Monday to Saturday is market day on Carlsplatz in Düsseldorf’s city centre. It is one of the prettiest in the city – if not in the entire federal state. It offers fresh goods on six days of the week – and there’s also plenty in the way of refreshments. A wide selection of international dishes is available to consume on the stalls. Very popular at lunchtime, and also for some time out when exploring the city of Düsseldorf.

    • Schloss Benrath

      Garden palace with museums
      This wonderful 18th century garden palace was a summer residence and hunting lodge for the Elector Carl Theodor, and thanks to its artistic unity of buildings, interiors and large gardens is today considered a synthesis of Rococo art. As well as visiting the main castle, it is also well worth seeing the Museum of Natural History and the «Museum of European Garden Art» in the west and east wings of the castle. A wonderful excursion that will transport you back to long-forgotten days. Closed on Mondays.

    • Kunsthalle

      Source of inspiration
      The Kunsthalle is housed in an architecturally impressive building on the Grabbeplatz and a source of inspiration both for art lovers and for the artists. There are regular exciting changing exhibitions on various subjects throughout the years, as well as discussions and other events. Closed on Mondays.

    • Kunstsammlung

      The Kunstsammlung – «art collection» – is divided between three buildings. The architectural finesse of the K21 Ständehaus is particularly impressive. The other two buildings are the K20 (Grabbeplatz 5) and the Schmela Haus (Mutter-Ey-Strasse 3). As well as the extensive collections of works by artists including Pablo Picasso and Wassily Kandinsky, the programme also includes the fantastic installations by Joseph Beuys and various exciting changing exhibitions.
