What people are saying about Düsseldorf

Man spielt das Spiel selbstständig mit einem Handy. Alles ist auf Deutsch. Den Anfang fanden wir etwas schwer, aber als wir kapiert haben worum es geht, hat uns das super Spaß gemacht. Am Ende gab es noch ein Zusatzlevel fürs Zuhause.

You should definitely do it. Then you have a good overview of the old town and can then set off in a targeted manner. We were lucky and were a small group. City guide Jürgen was great and also answered questions outside of the tour.

I took my friend for his birthday to see the Rheinturm It was a great time we got to enjoy some cake. Very good experience, I recommend

The boat trip was very nice and the duration was just right. We literally got a different view of the city.

Good to enjoy one hour on the water and a glass of Sekt.
