Dusseldorf International Airport (DUS)

Travel to western Germany to uncover Dusseldorf, North Rhine-Westphalia’s capital city. Best known for its magnificent vistas of the Rhine River, the area’s natural beauty is fashioned around the shimmering waters that cut through the city center, partitioning off the infamous arts and culture hub, Alstadt (Old Town), to the east. Be enticed by chic shopping boulevards, vast green parks and the famous, nearly 800-foot observation deck, Rheinturm — along with the wonder-evoking sculptures, museums and palaces that sprinkle the city. 

Feel The Hum Of Artistic Expression

As a destination known worldwide for eccentric architecture and profound kunst (art), Dusseldorf excites your imagination, gallery after gallery. Find your way to the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen museum to behold major works by Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse and Piet Mondrian. Gawk over futuristic exhibits at Kunstsammlung NRW, or browse rare vintage film technology at the Filmmusuem. The Classic Remise Dusseldorf offers a 200,000-square-foot classic car facility for you to peruse. Or, purchase daring fashion pieces in Konigsallee.

Art meets history in dramatic sculptures and monuments. Visit the Jan Wellem Equestrian Statute — considered one of the most beautiful equestrian statues north of the Alps; Jroner Jonh — a beautiful floating fountain depicting a sea god; and the Father Rhine and His Daughters statue — a symbol of homage to Emperor Wilhelm I. Marvel at the spiral staircase of the Schlossturm (Castle Tower), which houses the 2,000-year-account of Rhine navigation; or head south to Schloss & Park Benrath, a stunning 18th-century garden palace that holds three elaborate exhibits.

When it’s time to unwind, take refuge in riverfront entertainment or a quiet dinner with sweeping views at the Rheinturm. Enjoy a local Altbier beer at a riverside pub, or relish premier gastronomy in a fancy venue in the growing MedienHafen harbor area. Ultimate harmony includes an escape to the city’s many lush, green areas and ponds, such as Nordpark’s Japanese Garden or Southpark’s Field of Clocks. Evenings are best spent watching the sun melt into shimmering waters at the Rhine promenade.
