Transport from Dusseldorf Airport
Düsseldorf Airport is fully equipped with excellent transport connections, with two train stations, taxis and buses to get you that short distance into the heart of the city. There is also a sky train that connects the railway station with the terminal, stopping at the car parks too. This is recommended for passengers travelling light as luggage trolleys are not allowed.
Do your own thing and rent a car, alternatively you will find the public transport more than efficient, in which case, a Düsseldorf card may well be a good investment; with unlimited use of trams and buses and also free or reduced price entry to various attractions.
Top things to see and do
Königsallee is really what Düsseldorf is all about. Known to locals as the ‘Kö’, this is where Düsseldorf gets its reputation as a sophisticated and elegant shopping destination. If you like your labels, then you’ll feel right at home here. This spectacle of a boulevard has a stretch of water running down the middle of it and is the catwalk of Germany, the ‘who’s who’ of the fashion world.
With a claim like that you have to be just a little bit curious. This is Altstadt, or ‘Old Town’. Not only is it the hub of the art and cultural side of Düsseldorf, but it is lined with over 260 breweries, bars, lounges and clubs. The local beer and pork knuckle has to be sampled to really get you into the swing of things.
The Rhine embankment promenade has been called one of the most beautiful esplanades. It joins the city to its river and links the Old Town to the modern. The promenade is lined with bars and cafes and is the place to unwind by the water after a hard days shopping.
