City Topics


Düsseldorf is the state capital North Rhine Westphalia, NRW and all that stands for, with much to do and see/ Experiences include large events on the annual calendar such as the Funfair, Carnival and Japan Day, attractive museums and art venues, galleries and highly interesting, well presented exhibitions.

With much to discover about its history, sights and accommodation, one of the tourist information offices can provide many important facts deemed necessary for organising a fulfilling trip. Tickets, guided tours and advance bookings can also be purchased directly at the central railway station centre or the outlet in the old town.
