Altstaft, the city's old town, fills its narrow streets with relaxed cafes and chic bars. If you're lucky enough to visit in the winter, Düsseldorf is home to one of Germany's best Christmas markets, hosted at Marktplatz.
To experience Düsseldorf's culture, you can opt to watch a performance in an opera or a theatre. Two of the top theaters are the Düsseldorfer Schauspielhaus and Roncalli’s Apollo Variete. Then, when the opera makes you feel sufficiently posh, you'll be ready to enter the pink, opulent palace of Schloss Benrath.
While nearly every corner in Düsseldorf is filled with shops to catch your eye, the most exclusive and luxury shops congregate on one street: Königsallee. However, if you prefer digging through thrift shops and poking into local boutiques, Lorettostrasse might be more your style.
Düsseldorf is home to one of the largest airports in the area, with flights to many international destinations. To view the German countryside from the ground, take a Deutsche Bahn train or a bus offered by several companies that run routes throughout Europe.
