Interesting facts about Düsseldorf: The trade fair city

Düsseldorf continues to allure visitors even after the trade fairs with its many highlights. The city’s Old Town is often referred to as “the longest bar in the world,” bustling with numerous pubs, bars, and brewhouses. Beer enthusiasts, in particular, will delight in the traditional Altbier, a regional specialty brewed directly in Düsseldorf breweries.

Moreover, the Rhine significantly shapes the cityscape of Düsseldorf. The Rhine promenade is a popular meeting place for locals and visitors alike, ideal for walking, cycling, or relaxing in one of the many cafés. The Media Harbour, known for its blend of historical architecture and modern buildings, is a favorite spot for photographers. Another notable destination is Benrath Palace, which adds to the city’s charm.

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!

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.
