The old town, next to the river Rhein, is a lively area with lots of bars and restaurants and dinky shops in a pedestrian cobbled streets environment. Great for wandering around, but mostly tourists.

Filled with restaurants and bars aimed at tourists and drink youths this part of the city can be fun especially when looking for Alt beer and pigs knuckles. Worth an evening but that is about it

It is known as the world longest bar. Indeed it was. At every corners, there are bars selling their own beer. It was a an adventure going there every night to go bar hopping. The beer was good and the food was good and affordable....More

Be prepared for it to be busy - always buzzing and crowded so if you don't like crowds, avoid. Otherwise fun and lively atmosphere, live bands, street entertainment, bars, all the normal stuff for a vibrant city.

To me the best thing about Dusseldorf is the Altstadt. The old part of town where all the bars and restaurants are. Close to the river and the place to go

Maybe because I've grown up in a city with many old houses and an impressive old city, as well as having visited many that I became spoiled, but I didn't find anything major. By the way the locals speak about it, I expected much nicer.

Between the river and the trendy and populous Konigsaklee is located the Old Quarter. Full of restaurants and brauereis, this quarter is a convenient place to enjoy German food and beer. It is a lively place to walk around.
