Located on the majestic River Rhine, Dusseldorf is one of Germany’s most culturally attractive cities. It boasts hundreds of museums and galleries, cutting-edge architecture, luxury shopping and an enchanting old town (Altstadt) with cobbled streets and towering church spires. Here’s our list of places to stay.
Dusseldorf’s grande dame of the hotel world holds a stately position on Konigsallee boulevard, next to its impressive line-up of luxury boutiques. The hotel’s Schnitzler Beauty Lounge (below) is arguably the city’s most popular pamper palace among the elite, and its Brasserie 1806 restaurant offers French classics that have been given innovative, regional twists.
Set in the heart of Dusseldorf, this trendy hotel boasts a collection of over 400 works of art by various international painters, sculptors and photographers, each of whom designed a floor of the hotel according to their own style.
It’s all about collaboration and community at this hip hotel that’s positioning itself as a creative hub. Travellers and locals alike congregate here for good food, live bands, workshops, stand-up comedy evenings, art exhibitions and more.
Al fresco dining on a sweeping outdoor terrace, huge suites, great Sunday brunches, an excellent city-centre location – there’s a lot that’s good about this hotel. And you can even check your pets in too.
This swanky, but not snobby spot is situated in MedienHafen – Dusseldorf’s redeveloped harbour area that’s brimming with avant-garde architecture. The hotel’s spacious bedrooms offer spectacular views of the Rhine River and its Dox restaurant and champagne bar are both hangouts not to be missed.
