What makes Düsseldorf a special destination?
Similar to Paris, Düsseldorf is divided into numbered districts. District 1 forms the city’s main core. Although it is one of the more compact districts, it still contains several distinct zones, including the financial hub of Stadtmitte (City Centre). It's here you'll find the main businesses and shopping areas. Altstadt (Old Town) is a medieval quarter that’s become the city’s centre for nightlife, while Carlstadt has a more relaxed, distinctly bohemian feel. Make sure to venture out to see all that each disctrict has to offer. Everything is close to your hotel in Düsseldorf!
