Kö and Klunker (Kö and bling), that is a cliché in Düsseldorf. The pop-cultural and the politically interested know that the North Rhine-Westphalian capital also has a vibrant off-scene.
Its epicentre is located around the Kiefernstrasse and Fichtenstrasse in the Flingern district. This is where the zakk cultural centre is located, and here you will also find the residential street that has become famous for its left-alternative squatter scene. It happens like that so often: What used to be offensive and illegal now has cult status. Accordingly, street art decorates house walls and construction trailers. If you want to immerse yourself in the legendary scene and feel like a dose of “underground”, then an evening at the legendary punk club AK 47 is recommended.
