THINGS TO DO
The world’s largest trade fair in its field, boot Düsseldorf, presents a fascinating, safe environment where visitors can experience traditional water sports favourites. In seventeen exhibition halls, a somewhat different but equally inspiring boot will be organised in accordance with valid hygiene and infection protection regulations. Manufacturers of boats and yachts have almost uniformly announced their participation.
Excellent exhibitions and collections in a variety of art venues and museums as well as fascinating things to do almost every month are just some of the surprising kaleidoscope of activities in the city.
Major events take place through the year in Düsseldorf too. From carnival to the funfair, Christmas markets to Japanese Day, Japantag, and France Festival, Frankreichfest, life in the Rhineland is where virtually any excuse will do for a parade or a street event.Read More

All year round, the narrow bar-lined streets of Düsseldorf’s Altstadt are packed with revellers, especially during the days and weeks leading up to Christmas and on long summer evenings. In Düsseldorf, partying is practically an expression of local patriotism.
