Shopping, out on the town
The area around the historically protected trading port is full of places to eat out, from cosy pubs to trendy bars, open until late at night. You’re sure to find something to suit your taste at the Medienhafen media port website.
Düsseldorf’s Old Town or Altstadt is still the heart of the capital of North Rhine-Westphalia. Hardly half a square kilometre in area, this historical quarter of Düsseldorf located between the Rhine and the Heinrich-Heine-Allee has more than 20 restaurants and pubs from French gourmet to seafood, from Korean to Arab speciality restaurants. The Old Town is always teeming with life, whether you are visiting in the evenings or at night, or during the daytime. Shops and exquisite boutiques make an ideal place for a leisurely shopping trip. You will find 740 quality addresses in the new restaurant, nightlife, shopping, and culture guide.
Düsseldorf’s Königsallee is one of the few internationally known streets that can call itself a Boulevard. This is the essence of Düsseldorf as it sees itself. At just under one kilometre from north to south, the Kö – as it’s referred to by the locals – stretches from the Hofgarten to Friedrichstadt. Separated by the central waterway of the city’s moat, the eastern and western side of the Kö have developed independently of each other. The western side is where you will find the banks. On the eastern side, however, you will find retail outlets with a decidedly exquisite touch. An ever-increasing number of famous names jostle and vie with each other on the Kö. Information on shops, restaurants and parking facilities on the Kö are available on the Street’s own Website.
Right next to the luxurious Königsallee, you will find Düsseldorf’s busiest shopping street, Schadowstrasse. Not only the big names in Germany’s department stores such as Karstadt, Peek & Cloppenburg, Galeria Kaufhof, Deichmann, Sport Voswinkel and C&A, but also specialist shops such as Tommy Hilfiger, Mexx, Zara, Foot Locker, Runners Point and H&M attract customers in this typical city pedestrian precinct. However, you will not find such a large variety of places to eat.
Again, you can find out all about Düsseldorf’s popular shopping street at its own website, www.schadowstrasse-dus.de.
