Stylish streets and traditional pubs: Düsseldorf
Strictly speaking, Düsseldorf – the capital of North Rhine-Westphalia – was not originally built along the Rhine, as one might think, but extends either side of the narrow river Düssel. A visit to the historical heart of the old town, from St. Lambert's basilica to the castle tower, reveals the city's eponymous waterway, tucked away between Liefergasse and Burgplatz square. At the time, there was little indication that Düsseldorf would become a business, fashion and cultural centre of international standing – and one that is now undisputedly on the Rhine.
