Go where the Altbeer flows
Are you ready for an unforgettable night out at the “longest bar in the world”? Düsseldorf's Altstadt (Old Town) consists of around 260 pubs, restaurant and bars, which are located within half a square kilometre. You will find something for every taste there.
The Düsseldorf breweries keep up the tradition of brewing and make the brewery culture come alive. Brewing in Düsseldorf actually goes back to Roman times. “Alt” refers to the brewing style of the Altbier, and it means that it is a top-fermented beer. There are numerous student pubs, artists' meeting places and music clubs among the breweries. There are also bars and pubs, where the clientele is particularly international.
Pizza restaurants, grills, and Dutch chip shops are at hand for a quick snack. There was even an art exhibition in the NRW Forum dedicated to pizza culture. After all, pizza is now part of UNESCO World Heritage. Almost nowhere will you find as much doughy World Heritage as in the Altstadt (Old Town) of Düsseldorf. If you have a little more time, you will find original cafés, bistros and restaurants. Or you could go to Carlsplatz during the day, where you will find the incomparable food market. The synergy of art and music has created a lot of influential pop music in the clubs of the Altstadt (Old Town). “The Sound of Düsseldorf” stands for Krautrock, electro-pop and punk rock. Bands like Kraftwerk or Die Toten Hosen played their first concerts in the Altstadt (Old Town).
