From Karneval to Königsallee

Düsseldorf. Well, what do we know about Düsseldorf, apart from the fact that the city's residents love to party? Düsseldorf is the capital of Nordrhein-Westfahlen and has a lot more to offer than party-goers and music. From it's museums, to it's shopping strips, trendy clubs and historical old-twon, Düsseldorf has everything you need for a diverse and active short stay. The once purely industrial cuty has evolved into a formidable lifestyle metropolis. Thus the city has attracted a young crowd that doesnt just breathe life into all the tredny lounges and bars, but also peps up a visit to the Art Palace Museum or the Shipping Museum. The Königsallee shopping strip will convince you to go for a stroll. It is the biggest boulevard the city has to offer and luxury stores and designer boutiques line both sides of the street, which is a feast for the eyes of fashion victims. If your feet are tired and you need to recharge your batteries before hitting the nightlife, then find a perfect spot on the Rhein river banks – possibly the world's most beautfil metropolitan river setting. In short – you won't be disappointed if you visit Düsseldorf, as there is really something for everyone. Particularly the new hip corners that are always popping up and the buckets of style to get lost in.
