Get to know the modern city of Dusseldorf on a River Cruise

Built close to the water: The Rhine metropolis of Düsseldorf awaits you with modern architecture around the Medienhafen.

Dusseldorf's historic city center is also known as "the longest bar in the world". In over 300 pubs, the freshly tapped Altbier brings a wide variety of people together. Of course, you can also have fun in Dusseldorf without alcohol. The luxury boulevards such as the "Kö" invite you to take a stroll, the green parks and the beautiful Rhine promenade invite you to take a break - if only there weren't so many museums to visit! Dusseldorf is also a place of art. With Klee, Picasso, Beuys, Richter and many others, the K20 collection represents the art history of the 20th century in a particularly impressive way. In the Ständehaus there is also the K21, where the younger generation of artists is represented. And if you are craving something "real" after so much culture, the Carlsplatz market takes place daily and offers a heavenly selection of delicacies - and of course an Altbier bar.

City Breaks along the Rhine

Step aboard one of the A-ROSA cruise ships and discover Düsseldorf from the river.

During your Rhine river cruise, the A-ROSA AQUA and the A-ROSA FLORA will dock right in the centre of Düsseldorf. As you walk into the heart of the city, you can kick off your tour with a stroll along one of Germany’s leading luxury shopping boulevards, the Kö.

And why not visit one of over 300 pubs in the old town and enjoy a draught Altbier?

Then, discover even more of Düsseldorf with A-ROSA as you visit the old city hall in Renaissance-style and the magnificent Hofgarten park, whose oldest sections date back to the 18th century.

The best Sights and Destinations in Düsseldorf


The MedienHafen complex is a must-see. This unique urban district was created when the city’s old harbour area was rebuilt. Celebrated architects such as Frank O. Gehry, David Chipperfield and Claude Vasconi were allowed to let their creativity run free here – and the result is a fascinatingly varied neighbourhood.

Düsseldorf’s old town is known for having more than 300 pubs, among other things. The Uerige (the archetypical Düsseldorf brewery) always attracts a big crowd – even though the name of the establishment comes from the local word for ‘grumpy’. The Köbesse – as the waiting staff are known here – are rather unfriendly, in keeping with tradition. There’s plenty more to do here besides eat and drink. This is the capital of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, so there’s also a wealth of art and culture to enjoy.

The Königsallee is more than Düsseldorf’s main shopping boulevard – it has become the city’s trademark around the world.

Nicknamed Kö by the locals, it is a magnet for international visitors.

As well as a large variety of shops, it also boasts plenty of pavement cafes – which are perfect for sitting back and watching the world go by – and luxury hotels on its western side.
