10 altbier the rhinelanders love their altbier, and düsseldorf is a stronghold of the type. also called simply “alt” by those who make it their usual, it’s a dark, top-ferment- ed beer. savouring a glass of this brew is an essential part of any visit to düsseldorf. the old town is dotted with numerous small trad itional breweries that are expert at their craft. königsallee düsseldorf has an inter national reputation as a city of elegance and style: many fashion designers have made it their base. the kö-bogen, completed in autumn 2013, was designed by the world- famous new york architect, daniel libeskind. it connects königsallee with the historical hofgarten and innovatively extends this exclusive shopping street. saunter down the east side of this boulevard as far as the bergische lion coat of arms, then make your way back along the west side. take a seat at any of the terrace cafés and live the motto of the kö: “see and be seen!” medienhafen the rhine tower, the north rhine-westphalia parliament, the gehry buildings, the city gate or colorium – medienhafen is a hot- spot for creative architecture in düsseldorf. several international architects played a creative role in the reconstruction of the old rhine port area. frank o. gehry, david chipperfield, joe coenen, steven holl and claude vasconi were among those who made a creative contri- bution to make it what it is today. those goods depots which were protected by a preservation order had to be renovated with hi-tech en- gineering and creative interior de- sign. the ancient storerooms have been recreated with a new style and grace. however, you can still feel the old port atmosphere everywhere despite all the re- construction. just a decade ago the warehouses were nothing but immense empty spaces inside. today, various television channels and radio stations, and advertising and media agencies, design bureaus and suchlike have all set up shop inside. so that’s where the name came from: medien hafen, which means media harbour. 3 4 5 sightseeing places to be altbier glasses & more the special altbier glasses and other souvenirs of düsseldorf can be bought at the tourist information offices in the old town and at central station halve hahn when in a brewery pub, order a “halve hahn” to go with your altbier and you’re in for a small but tasty surprise.

41 people also come to this district for the restaurant and party scene. there’s a bermuda triangle of restaurants a gourmet could get lost in. begin a day in derendorf and pempelfort with breakfast in “ab der fisch” or “löffelbar”, have a bratwurst deluxe for lunch at “curry”, and in the evenings, guests dance on the tables to german pop hits at sennhütte. and in the long afternoon, check out the offbeat and unique local stores and see what small present you can bring home.
42 derendorf & pempelfort cafés, bars and pubs 11 löffelbar the chefs must have taken a peek inside the soup tureens of the whole world in this place. löffelbar has a fascinating range of international cuisine. you’d be very wrong to think it was only soup on offer! there are salads, tapas and home-made cake, but also a range of cocktails in the feel-good atmosphere here. late risers take note – breakfast is served until 16:00! tußmannstraße 3 www.loeffelbar.de 10 curry try the extrawurst sausage prepared by star chefs! the place has a mod- ern ambience with comfortable seating out front. get your gourmet currywurst (german sausage with curry sauce) and french fries. they also have an unusual range of home- made sauces like chilli-apricot or peanut satay. and if you pay a pre- mium you’ll experience the saying “the customer is king” and get your currywurst served in gold leaf! moltkestraße 115 www.curry-deutschland.de 6 carrot/cake it isn’t only vegans who love this café with its daily changing cakes, tortes, cupcakes and other tasty treats. it also serves fair trade coffee specialities and drinks such as “viva con agua”, “fritz-kola”, “fritz-limo” and “lemonaid”. at the weekends, carrot/cake is also open for breakfast. moltkestraße 75 www.carrotcake.de 3 da forno da forno is not a pizzeria. it has already been a gelateria since 1912 and brothers daniele and francesco now serve up their ice cream, that they make with love and tradition. there are no flavour enhancers in the ice cream – just home-roasted nuts, confectionery chocolate or chestnut purée from lombardy. a place that brings back memories of childhood. schwerinstraße 1 4 himmel & ähd all ages are welcome here. experi- ence unique rhineland hospitality at this incredibly cosy yet modern brewery restaurant. whether you’re sampling düsseldorf “füchschen” altbier or a crisp, freshly prepared knuckle of pork, try the rhineland cuisine indoors sitting around beer barrels, or out on the terrace – where you’re protected from the elements in winter and can enjoy the sun in summer. nordstraße 53 www.himmel-aehd.de carrot/cake
