Walk to the Rhine Tower

The sculpture features an observation deck, restaurant and bar and is one of the most popular attractions in the city. There is a small entrance fee of 9 euros which can only be paid in cash.

Go to the Classic Remise

Classic Remise
Classic Remise is a place for vintage and classic cars. Even if you don’t know your spark plugs to your air filters this center has everything you can imagine in terms historic vehicles. There are only two of these centers in the world (the other being in Berlin) so is well-worth a visit and something different to do on a holiday.

Visit Fischmarkt

Located along Dusseldorf Tonhallenufer, Fishmark features around 90 stalls selling fish, fruit and veg, flowers and crafts. However, check your holiday dates as the market is only on for seven Sunday throughout the year between April and November. Expect the market to be busy with many people enjoying the food, drink and entertainment that they have on offer.

Drink an Erdinger

Drink an Erdinger
Germany is famous for its production in beers and Dusseldorf is no different. Local breweries such as Uerige, Fuchschen and Kurzer are all great and well worth a visit and if you want to try some of their local beer. There are endless bars, pubs and restaurants which offer local, national and international beer, however, I couldn’t get enough of Erdinger Weissbrau Weissbier which is a wheat beer.
