Travel to Düsseldorf: Cheap buses, trains and flights

About Dusseldorf

The capital of North Rhine - Westphalia, Dusseldorf is known for prestigious trade fairs, dazzling nightlife and modern art and architecture. The decidedly upmarket city enjoys a superb location on the banks of the Rhine and though much was destroyed during the Second World War the bustling Old Town has been meticulously rebuilt. Essential stops for visitors include the City Monument, the Neander Church and Media Harbor where incredible buildings by Frank O. Gehry, David Chipperfield and Claude Vasconi dominate the skyline.
