Dusseldorf has become a Mecca for shopping lovers.
Whatever your budget, Dusseldorf has something for everyone. You'll find shoe paradise in the Schadowstrasse and the Schadow-Arkaden shopping mall offers fashion shops for all shapes, sizes and tastes. But for high-street fashion at its very best, shopping connoisseurs know there is only one place to go – the world famous Königsallee! The Kö, as it is known locally, is more than just a road – it's a lifestyle. Lined with chestnut trees and a canal running through its middle, this magnificent upmarket boulevard is the home of international top designers, a veritable who's who in the world of fashion and design. Chic street cafés, bistros and bars tempt shoppers to stop for a Latte Macchiato or a Hugo (a light and refreshing prosecco cocktail very popular in Germany), rest their weary feet and people watch a while – and soak up the unique atmosphere of this Dusseldorf boulevard.
And if you're looking for something more hip or cool, or for accessories that are a little more off-beat, you'll love the unique flair (and the smaller price tags!) of the Altstadt (Old Town).
But Dusseldorf is so much more than the fashion capital of Germany, it also has an abundance of pubs, clubs and bars, and more culturally minded travellers will find plenty of theatres, concert halls, art galleries and places of historical interest. This Rhine city really does have something for everyone.
And if all that shopping and culture has left you worn out, what better place to relax and unwind than one of our two discount Motel One design hotels – great value for money that doesn't compromise on service and quality.
