Climate friendly travel
Comfortably to Düsseldorf by train and without traffic jams.
Düsseldorf has not just one image, but several. Carnival stronghold, little Japan, shopping metropolis and fashion city. And everything is true somehow. In any case, Düsseldorf is a city with many faces - and it's worth taking a closer look at all of them.
You can have some fun by typing Little Japan into Google. Immediately "Düsseldorf" pops up, headlines like "The Japanese metropolis on the Rhine" appear. Indeed, when visiting Düsseldorf, you shouldn't miss the area around Immermannstrasse - here you'll find the total Japanese shopping experience - and a piece of home for 6,500 Japanese on the Rhine.
Less surprising, but just as chic: Königsallee, Düsseldorf's classy shopping mile. The Kö is known throughout Germany, as is Düsseldorf's legendary old town with its many pubs. And, of course, Düsseldorf is also a carnival stronghold, but please don't shout "Alaaf", that would be a sin, here the rule is "Helau".
But before the wrong impression is created: People do work hard in Düsseldorf, too. But then at least in such a chic ambience as the modern Medienhafen on the Rhine. It is home to young start-ups and agencies, and no two buildings are alike: According to the plans of numerous renowned architects, a spectacular complex of the most diverse styles has been created here. An example: the "Neue Zollhof" with its crooked silhouette by Frank O. Gehry.
