"Beats Cologne!" Düsseldorf by Sjalen

Düsseldorf Travel Guide: 980 reviews and 2,288 photos

Düsseldorf to me was always the place known for "the longest bar in the world" with all the pubs in its Old Town, and for being somewhere Cologne people don't go. Now I know why, as Cologne pales in comparison (but don't tell my cousin that!). I don't know if it was because Sabsi and Thomas showed us around their hometown or perhaps because the Rhine is more exciting up here and Alt is nicer than Kölsch. Whatever the reason, I just felt much more at ease here and since I only visited for half a day, this page shows only a fraction of what there is to see and do here and as for me, I just have to come back soon and see the city in better weather. Meanwhile, I know whose side I'm on in the constant "battle of the Rhine giants".
