Düsseldorf impresses with boundary-pushing architecture, zinging nightlife and an art scene to rival many higher-profile cities.
Düsseldorf is a posh and modern city that seems all buttoned-up business at first glance: banking, advertising, fashion and telecommunications are among the fields that have made North Rhine–Westphalia’s capital one of Germany’s wealthiest cities.
Düsseldorf is the capital of the Northrhine-Westfalia area with a population of about 500,000 people. Early 7th and 8th century fishing villages existed along the Rhine River where the city of Düsseldorf is today. The first written mention of the city can be dated back to the 12th century and it slowly grew into an important European city. In 1380 Düsseldorf was made into the regional capital of the Duchy of Berg.
In the mid 19th century the city grew into a major industrial center because of the Industrial Revolution. Because of World War II the city was bombed into a pile of rubble because of 24 hour air raids. Düsseldorf quickly grew into a major economic power house and some of the cities trade fairs attract over 4 million visitors each year.
The historic Altstadt may claim to be the ‘longest bar in the world’ but some attention has strayed to Medienhafen, a redeveloped harbour area and a festival of international avant-garde architecture. Older neighbourhoods are also evolving. Case in point: Flingern, which has gone from drab to fab in recent years and has a multifaceted arty boho scene.
