Between the proverbial Rhenish joie-de-vivre and the cosmopolitan charm of a trade fair city with global repute, there is a wealth of attractions to be seen and experienced. The German Opera on the Rhine, numerous theatres and 18 museums document Düsseldorf’s position as one of the leading cultural cities in Germany. With its famous Königsallee, a splendid boulevard lined by chestnut trees, regarded as a catwalk for the latest fashion trends, the North Rhine-Westphalian state capital is one of the shopping destinations par excellence. 

Over a length of 2 km, the Rhine embankment promenade invites you to a stroll with a breathtaking view of the city and river. Enjoy the Rhine from it's most beautiful promenade.
