Everything’s close together in Düsseldorf. We are the only major German city that still has the word “dorf” (village) in its name – although it has long since become a global village. And that’s entirely in tune with the tolerant and cosmopolitan way of life that is cultivated everywhere in the city. This is why you’ll feel completely at home in Düsseldorf. The Rhinelanders quickly give you a sense of belonging. Take a seat in one of our famous brewery inns or sit for a while on the steps of the Rheintreppe (Rhine Terrace Steps). You’ll quickly discover that people love to chat.
