Dusseldorf city tour

Price: 11.00 EUR
Countries: Germany
Route: Dusseldorf
Duration: 1.5 h
One city – two rivers. The Düssel gave the city its name, the Rhine its importance. The former fishing village at the mouth of the idyllic Düssel,  which flows into the great River Rhine, looks back on more than 800 years of eventful history, on counts and prince electors who shaped the beginnings of today’s metropolis. Goethe’s visit left its traces in “Poetry and Truth”, napoleon’s visit the sobriquet “Little Paris”. The poet Heinrich Heine praised his native town as being “very beautiful”. A guided tour of the city will reveal the whole spectrum between histo-ry and modern age – the sights, museums, microbreweries and institutions that make Düssel-dorf what it is – a successful state capital  city with a rich tra-dition. 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. During the walk tour you will see the  Kö-Galerie , the Triton fountain, the Kaufhof building, the “Slim Matilda”, the clock that has been one of the city’s most popular meeting points for generations, the Altstadt (old Town), the Hein-rich-Heine-Allee, the Wilhelm-Marx-House, the Flinger Straße,the St. Andreas, one of the Rhine-land’s most beautiful baroque churches, the Bolkerstraße is the birth-place of the poet Heinrich Heine, the Protestant neander church, the Marktplatz,the Carlstadt and more.
