Düsseldorf Sights – Places to Visit
Just like any other place that respects its history, Düsseldorf has an Old Town, called “Altstadt”. Besides the amazing traces of the past, this region is popular for its food, drink and the beautiful churches, such as: the Neanderkirche, St. Lambertus, the Kreuzherrenkirche and the Bergerkirche. Altstadt is also famous for the longest row of bars that exist (almost 200). Locals and tourists like to come here to taste and enjoy the traditional dark, mellow beer, called the Altbier.
Düsseldorf Sights also include the unique Benrath Palace, one of the most visited places in the city. The beautiful construction represents a proof of the transition from the late baroque period to the classical architecture.
For those who love Goethe’s writings, there is a perfect Museum where they can enjoy every piece of his work: Goethe Museum. The building also possesses a room where writings related to Faust are exhibited, so all lovers of literature and Goethe will have the time of their life here.
Düsseldorf Sights – Events and Festivals
Quite similar to the Brazilian Festival or the Italian Mardi Gras, the Germans celebrate the Karneval every year. As German people take advantage of every occasion to have fun and seize the moment, there are two different times that this event takes place, but the most important one is in February.
Another street parade takes place in November and lasts for a week. It is a great opportunity for locals and tourist to enjoy this amazing city, to meet new people and to taste the local food and beverage. The atmosphere is even more joyful, because of the Christmas holidays that are on their way. The downtown is usually full with people selling handicrafts and different markets offering traditional products.
