Altstadt has more to offer than any other district in Dusseldorf and its name, when translated, means ‘old town’. It is known as the largest bar in the world because it has over 300 bars and discothèques connected to one another. There is something for everyone’s tastes with its local breweries, lounges, cocktail bars, and electronic clubs. The district is also intellectually stimulating because this is where most of the state capital’s art and cultural venues can be found. The major Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen, innovative NRW-Forum, venerable Museum Kunstpalast and the Filmmuseum, which has even been praised by Hollywood greats, are just a few of the many museums this town has to offer.
And, for those who love to shop, the city is littered with boutiques and small shops that can help you find rare items, you won’t get in your local store or mass market brands. So pack a bag, buy your ticket, and check out this list for some of the best Airbnb vacation rentals you can stay in while you enjoy the magic of this city.
This is a shared apartment, so if you’re looking for a place that you can have to yourself, this may not be the one for you. The host, however, tries to stay away from the guests in order to not interfere in their affairs. The apartment is located right above a pizzeria so expect excellent fragrance of delicious fresh baked pizza pies wafting through the windows and calling you out to explore the city. Museum’s, The Rhine, and all the pubs are only a short five-minute walk from this cozy and comfortable apartment. The apartment has access to a kitchen, bathroom, balcony, and large shared living room. The owner, however, has a cat so fair warning for those with allergies! There is also WiFi available, a washer unit, heating, and work space for those who need to catch up on some work while they play!
