Renowned architects such as Frank O. Gehry, David Chipperfield, Joe Coenen, Steven Holl and Claude Vasconi have made the Media Harbour the top address for connoisseurs of architecture from all over the world. Where just a few years ago deserted storage halls emanated an atmosphere of bleakness, internationally renowned companies from the fields of advertising and the arts, communication and TV-production have set up their offices.
After visiting the Media Habour enjoy a stroll along the Rhine promenade to Duesseldorf’s famous old town. 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.
