Things to do


Major events take place through the year in Düsseldorf. From the crazy carnival to the funfair, Christmas markets to Japanese day, and France festival, life in the Rhineland is where virtually any excuse will do for a parade or a street event. Most are accompanied by beer, sausage and assorted delicacies on a grand scale. Photo © Messe Düsseldorf.
