History, stories and the longest bar in the world
Düsseldorf is a still fairly unknown jewel.
The old town is pretty small - about 5-6 football fields. Let's walk the cobblestoned streets, immerse into the past but not forgetting the present. On our way we will find historical buildings as well as living traditions, interesting art and statues and experience the influence of history in our nowadays life.
The old town calls itself "The longest bar in the world" because of its vibrant night life with hundreds of pubs, bars, restaurants, breweries and discotheques in the old town. Our motto is "work hard, party hard" - one of the reasons that the consulting company Mercer ranked it in the Top-10 worldwide when it comes to quality of living.
My tours are customized, there is no standard because I want to match your interests.
"Must sees" in the old town are the historical city hall and market sqare, the castle tower, several churches (St. Lambert, St. Andrew, Neander) and of course the river Düssel which gave its name to the city.
If you are interested in WW II we can include a visit to a historical air raid shelter.
In case of bad weather we might have a coffee in the Café of the castle tower museum (extra entrance fee) with a beautiful view over the old town.
And last but not least we will stroll a bit on the most beautiful promenade along the whole Rhine river.
