Experience Düsseldorf

Do you feel like dancing and partying? There is something for everyone in the Düsseldorf club scene. You can experience typical Düsseldorf nightlife at the Hausbar Düsseldorf, for example. Here there is no shortage of traditional Altbier, or fine champagne, or fruity cocktails. But when roaming the old town, you can also find the Elephant Bar for sixties fans or the 20° Restobar, a mixture of bar, restaurant and bistro.

But if it’s more a bit of culture you’re after, Düsseldorf’s art collections and museums have plenty to offer. After a strenuous visit to the fair, however, perhaps relaxation is in order: this goes particularly well on the Rhine bank promenade. The idyllic setting invites you to take a stroll, go for a bike ride or sunbathe in the casemates.

Need more inspiration? At HM business travel we can design your supporting programme for the trade fairs at the same time! Not only can you be sure of a suitable hotel room, but also of events that will be remembered.

When you visit a trade fair, do you also want to get to know the city itself? In addition to hotel bookings, HM business travel can also give you tips on staying in the city, from dining out to sightseeing. As a trade fair visitor, you can not only benefit from our comprehensive service, but also discover the highlights of the city that hosts the trade fair.

If you are planning a longer stay in Düsseldorf, the DüsseldorfCard is worthwhile. The tourist ticket includes up to 50% discount on entry to attractions, museums, activities, or city tours. They are valid from 1 to 4 days. Additionally, a 24-hour hop-on hop-off bus ticket is a great way to explore the sightseeing hotspots. You can hop on and off these buses whenever you want.

Do you have minimal available time outside the trade fair? Then, enjoy a trip to Media Harbour with a great panoramic view. Above all, the three-part building ensemble Neuer Zollhof is a great destination for architecture fans. For all shopping fans, however, Königsallee is a must-see on the list of places to visit. And no matter how you arrange your daily program: To top it off, Düsseldorf’s old town, with around 260 pubs and bars tempts you to take more than just a short detour – there’s always something going on here! And in the best case scenario, you won’t have far to go to your hotel afterwards, so you can end the evening relaxed and carefree. We are happy to be your personal contact if you want to secure the best hotel room.

Are you drawn to interpack 2026 in Düsseldorf? Now you want to know where you can get your money’s worth in culinary terms? In the Rhineland in particular, you can enjoy a large selection of hearty and traditional dishes. Whether it’s Sauerbraten, Himmel un Ääd, or the delicious mustard roast, the variety is great!

A popular visitor location is Uerige Hausbrauerei, right in the heart of the old town. This restaurant is known for its tasty Altbier and offers small delicacies such as meatballs with mustard or Mettbrötchen – a popular classic among Germans!

You can also spoil yourself with delicious treats on Hoffeldstraße, in the So Re. The menu includes creative appetisers, Georgian flatbreads with fillings, and other delicacies that you won’t find just anywhere. Vegetarians will also have no problem finding what they are looking for here.

But maybe you prefer an artistic atmosphere? The interior of the Lido Malkasten on Jacobistraße is reminiscent of the legendary art history of the area. The internationally inspired food is also an event in itself. Because here you can watch the chef preparing the food.
