There is plenty to see and do in this area. Shopping historical buildings and lots of great restaurants. It's fairly easy to access this area if you are not staying in the center on the tram and bus service.

It's such a nice district to walk around, go shopping, just take a stroll and enjoy the pedestrian area, the beautiful architecture, the typical German restaurants and breweries serving Alt Bier. If there is 1 thing to do in Düsseldorf, it's see the Alt Stadt !

We came to Düsseldorf for the Christmas markets, and they really didn't disappoint. Everything we really easy to find, and over the four days were we in Dusseldorf we always ended up back in the Old Town for dinner and drinks.

This simply the place to be for bars and restaurants. Its can get really busy and some of the bars you can't get in because they're so full! Definately worth a visit
