The warm-hearted nature of the people who live here characterises the attitude to life in this major city. Visitors can discover and experience this at numerous special places and attractions. Spending the evening at the river Rhine, strolling through parks or marvelling at historical buildings: the possibilities are endless in Düsseldorf.

Düsseldorf has a number of architectural landmarks, but the Rhine tower is the most striking. This is not least due to its height. It soars 240,5 metres into the sky, and on a clear day the Cologne Cathedral can be seen from the M168 observation deck.

The heart of the Invictus Games Düsseldorf 2023 is the MERKUR SPIEL-ARENA – directly on the banks of the Rhine.
It offers space for 54,600 spectators and unforgettable ceremonies and competitions. This is where the Games will be opened and a large part of them will be held.

For many, Düsseldorf is synonymous with the Kö. No other German shopping street is blessed with such charisma. The Königsallee is just as much a golden mile as an international trademark.
This is where the culinary heart of the city beats. More than 60 stands are close to each other and try to outdo each other with their freshness, quality and choice on a daily basis.
It covers only half a square kilometre and is nevertheless known as the “the longest bar in the world”. In fact, the old town of Düsseldorf has many facets beyond the famous Altbier and the notorious “Raubeinigen Köbesse”, as the waiters are called here.

In the northwestern corner of Nordpark, where the park is the quietest and most tranquil, there is a garden gem of a special kind – the “Japanese garden on the Rhine”.
Düsseldorf is often associated with luxury. But money does not always have to be involved. Even the vastness of the Rhine meadows in the middle of the big city is a luxury that other cities are lacking.
These are Schloss Jägerhof and Schloss Benrath in the south of Düsseldorf. The latter was designed by architect Nicolas de Pigage and is considered one of the most beautiful late Baroque garden palaces in Europe.
It is considered one of the most beautiful German squares of the postwar period: The Burgplatz between the Rhine embankment and the Altstadt (Old town) is one of those places that should definitely be on the list.
