Germany 

Dusseldorf, better Düsseldorf, is one of the richest towns in Germany. It is a handsome and elegant, modern city on the banks of the Rhine River. Düsseldorf is a city where everything is close together: just near the is the Altstadt, the old quarter of the city. With its 260 cosy pubs and home-brew taverns it is well known as “the longest bar in the world”.

A little further on, you can find renewed proof that the citizens of Düsseldorf love to promenade: the traditional has recently acquired a new companion promenade, which is even two kilometers long. Now that the new Rhine embankment tunnel has diverted the through traffic, the Altstadt has taken back its traditional place by the Rhine. While the traffic races along underground, strollers on the Rhine embankment promenade can admire the outlook over the Rhine and the art nouveau facades of Oberkassel. The view swings to the Rhine tower, which rises above the North Rhine-Westphalia government building. From a bird’s-eye perspective you can see the city, the countryside, the river, and on a clear day even the towers of Cologne cathedral. You can enjoy a romantic view of the city by exploring it from one of the many white pleasure steamers.

A trip northwards will take you to Kaiserswerth, following Barbarossa’s tracks to the medieval ruins of his castle, picturesque houses, idyllic places, in the typical Lower Rhine countryside.

The city parks provide a pleasant haven when your feet get weary. End your wanderings in Old Town (adjacent to downtown), which has been turned into a large open-air pedestrian mall with restaurants clubs and stores. Dusseldorf is also home to the largest Japanese population in Europe and boasts a number of excellent Japanese restaurants and shops and a striking Buddhist temple. There are several old castles and churches in the area. They can be visited as daytrips. Another very interesting daytrip can be made to Museum Insel Hombroich.
