Old Town Walk - public guided tour

Detailed description

Discover the "longest bar in the world" - and much more. Düsseldorf's Altstadt (Old Town) is packed with more than 260 bars, restaurants, cafés, and breweries, along with everything else that adds to the flair of a historically grown city. Join an expert guide on a stroll through the picturesque lanes, take a look behind the scenes and prepare to make surprising discoveries.

This is history come to life. Find out, among other things, why the Gothic St. Lambertus church has a twisted tower, how The Rider statue of popular elector Jan Wellem came about, where Heinrich Heine was born, and how tailor Wibbel gained fame. The Burgplatz (square) with the Schlossturm (palace tower) holds great charm. From here, it's a stone's throw to the Rhine embankment Promenade - offering a stunning view of Düsseldorf's skyline and the Oberkassel Rhine banks.
