Public Transport, Düsseldorf: 24 reviews and 31 photos

For as little as 9 euros you can get 24 hours of free transport in the city, along with large discounts (sometimes even free entry) to the main attractions. Because I slept a large part of my first day in the city, and because I didn't find the transport system all that useful or easy to use, I don't think I got my money's worth out of it. However, if you organise yourself and do some fairly hardcore sightseeing, you will easily make the purchase worthwhile. The best part of the deal, apart from the free city transport, is the free entry to the Rhine Tower (a must see) and the half price entry to the K20 and K21 art museums. Just visiting those three sites would pay for the 24 hour ticket alone.

You can buy the WelcomeCard from the Dusseldorf Tourist information offices, many of the hotels and cultural institutes and also the manned sales points of the Rheinbahn public transport system. When you get the card just fill in your name on the back and the time you want it to start. Unlike ordinary travel tickets you don't need to validate it, and you are unlikely to ever have to show it.

Price: 9, 14 and 19 euros for 24, 48 and 72 hours respectively. Double the price for the "group ticket", which covers three adults, or two adults and two children (up to 14).
