Walking through here explains many of Germany's issues. The youth are loud, walk in large groups and are all drinking. The young women dress literally like they are selling something. This was not an inviting place for tourists. The beggars and gypsies are out selling at night. Not a place I'd pay to come back to. I might well pay... More

For everyone visiting Dusseldorf it is must to visit Altstadt. Here is where everything is happening. Great beerpubs serving their own brewed alt beer, lots of coctail bars and some good restaurants. You need more than one night here.

Stayed in the centre of the old city and had great fun exploring it on foot. It has some amazing contrasts; old world churches and beer halls on cobbled streets, modern galleries, tacky Irish bars, some classy boutique shops and dodgy pizza joints. Or, you can stroll along the east bank of the Rhein and stop for a coffee &... More

Was in town for business and headed over to Old Town. Great place to check out, Pubs are a lot of fun, great beer and meat platters. Apple Streusel was the best I've ever had.

We stayed in old town for 2 nights and loved it. Lots of restaurants to choose from, only 20 min walk to Rhine tower. Gorgeous in the day and night. We did struggle to get a cup of tea, I'd recommend taking tea bags with you if you're partial to your favourite tea bag. Lovely part of town with a... More

As with all points that become touristy, you get what you pay for. The Altstadt is quaint in the daytime and party time busy in the night time with something for almost anyone. Some of the most emblematic beer halls and restaurants of the city are crammed into the 500sq.m. Of the Alstadt. Worth the brief visit, though you'll get... More

If you are anywhere nearby, make the effort to get here. Plenty of history still as it has always been with plenty of restaurants, bars, nightlife thrown in for good measure. Always upbeat action until the early hours but plenty to see do and eat in daylight hours too.
