One Day in Düsseldorf: Make the Most Out of Your Stay

Visit Düsseldorf, the capital of North Rhine Westphalia, is always worth it. Beautifully and conveniently located on the river Rhine and close to many other great destinations, it has a lot to offer not only during Carnival time. But what if you only have one day in Düsseldorf? Maybe you are passing through or have a business meeting so you have no more than 24 hours to discover this gorgeous city. 

We have prepared the perfect day trip for you to see and experience the most beautiful things. The list of things to visit in Düsseldorf:
  • Medienhafen
  • Old Town
  • Rhine Tower
  • Königsallee
  • Riverfront Restaurants
  • Local breweries

Start your day at the Medienhafen. From here, you don’t only get an incredible view of the Rhine but there are also many fun and interesting buildings to discover and photograph. The most famous ones are the Gehry houses. You will understand why once you see them. Modernly built with a lot of unique elements and great architecture, they make the perfect sight.

You are already at the Rhine so now, take a stroll along the promenade, all the way to the city’s old town. Along here, you will find many cafés and restaurants overlooking the river offering great food, drinks and views.

If you are feeling a little adventurous and up for an activity, why not go up on the Rhine Tower? It is the tallest building in Düsseldorf and for a small entrance fee, you can go all the way up and admire an unbeatable view of the entire city.

From the old town, it is only a short walk to the famous Königsallee, the big shopping spree with tons of beautifully designed shopping windows. Even a stroll up and down the beautiful alley is worth it and maybe you can also pop into one of the shops and treat yourself!

To end your day, get dinner in one of the several restaurants around the city. We would recommend choosing one at the riverfront for a beautiful ambience and atmosphere and one more great view. 

A trip to Düsseldorf is not complete without trying the local Alt beer. You can even try different versions of the famous beer as many Düsseldorf based breweries also run their own pubs and bars in the city centre.

Afterwards, head back to one of the best Leonardo Hotels in Dusseldorf, the Leonardo Royal Hotel Düsseldorf Königsallee, the Leonardo Boutique Hotel Düsseldorf or the Leonardo Hotel Düsseldorf City Center and let your evening fade out with a delicious cocktail at the bar.
