A visit to several microbreweries
We will meet in the old town and taste the typical Dusseldorf drink: dark coloured top fermented Altbier.
Find our your favourite Altbier - which translates to "old beer": As the "old" refers to the method of brewing they all use their individual recipies and thus each Altbier tastes differently.
There are four microbreweries within the pretty small old town - from very traditional Schlüssel, Uerige and Füchschen to modern Kürzer. The old headquarter of Schumacher brewery is also in the old town - they brew their beer since the Second World War in the city center outside of the old town.
You will be able to taste all of their brews if you like.
We will start in the old town, visit several breweries and you will be able to taste their differences.
The traditional way of having an Altbier is to lean on a high (comfortable) table outside - and then walk on to the next brewery.
If you'd rather sit down we will do the brewery crawl at a more leisurely pace and be able to taste two or three of the different old beers.
I cater the tour to your interests: If you don't like alcohol it is possible to have non-alcoholic drinks like a Rhubarb or elderflower "lemonade" called Fassbrause in Uerige brewery or an Apfelschorle - a typical mix of apple juice and sparkling water - instead.
