Dusseldorf
Germany
By K. I. Borrowman

Düsseldorf, on the romantic Rhine, is Germany’s northwest travel hub.  German trains service this city to and from all other major cities in Germany and some in neighboring countries.  From here, you can take day trips to many other fascinating German destinations, and explore the amazing sights Düsseldorf has to offer.

WhatsCheaper.com invites you to book your next vacation to Düsseldorf.  You will arrive at Düsseldorf International Airport (DUS). To book your flight with WhatsCheaper.com, just click this link (http://www.whatscheaper.com/flight.php). We can also help with booking your hotel reservations as well. By clicking this link (http://www.whatscheaper.com/hotel.php), vacationers can utilize our hotel finder to search for low prices.

From the airport, begin your Düsseldorf experience with a trip on the Sky Train, which will zoom you, suspended over the airport and traffic, to the train station. WhatsCheaper.com's recommendation is to pick up a multi-day transit pass when you reach the airport train station.  This is an inexpensive and convenient way to get all over the city.  If you are traveling with others, a group pass will save you even more money.

Your first stop in Düsseldorf will likely be the Altstadt.  With many quick, nearby food options to choose from, the Altstadt is an excellent area to pick up a tasty breakfast or lunch.  WhatsCheaper.com recommends a delicious waffle.   Art lovers will not be able to resist a visit to the Kunstsammlung NRW, the modern art museum situated in the Altstadt.

Visit the Markplatz to see Düsseldorf’s beautiful Rathaus and the famous equestrian statue of Jan Wellem, and check out the beautiful St. Lambertus Basilica.  Wander down to the Rheinufer Promenade.  You can spend your time strolling along the promenade, and checking out Düsseldorf’s impressive new industrial district.  Or you can take a relaxing cruise to Media Harbor, seeing many of Düsseldorf’s sites along the way, including Düsseldorf’s tallest tower, the Rhine Tower, and Frank Gehry's bizarre ‘Zollhof’ buildings.  At the hub of the city’s residential, financial, and municipal districts, this old harbor area is being redeveloped with three unique, modern buildings, housing art and media clients, and underscoring Düsseldorf’s cultural and business identity.

WhatsCheaper.com suggests you plan to return to the Altstadt for your evening entertainment, as with its over 300 bars and discos, this district of Düsseldorf is known as “the longest bar in the world!”  The long strip of bars runs along Ratinger Strasse.  Here you can sample the local favorite, Altbier or Old Beer.

An entire day of your visit to Düsseldorf could easily be spent at the Benrath Palace.  Reach it on Tram 701.  Built in the mid 1700s, Schloss Benrath was designed as a pleasure and hunting palace for the Elector Karl Theodor.  You can take a tour of this amazing palace, including its museums, or just spend the day wandering in the beautiful gardens.   

WhatsCheaper.com recommends learning about Goethe at the magnificent “Schloss Jagerhof.” Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, most well-known for “Faust”, is widely regarded as the most prominent and important writer in the German language.  WhatsCheaper.com also recommends rubbing shoulders with the city’s elite on Königsallee, Düsseldorf’s well-known high street.

You could finish your trip to Düsseldorf with a leisurely boat trip down the romantic Rhine River.  Either a one-way trip to another city, such as Frankfurt, or a return trip back to Düsseldorf allows you to take in the spectacular views of villages and castles in the Black Forest.
