Driving in and around Düsseldorf

Driving in Düsseldorf is relatively straightforward, especially in the more modern parts of the city. The old town district (Altstadt) is a slightly more complex affair, but the maze of tight, narrow cobbled streets and alleyways is fun to explore, with something different to see at every turn.

Parking in Düsseldorf is also plentiful, with a high number of parking lots dotted around both parts of the city. Paid parking applies in most city center areas and your stay is unlimited, except on parking bays with blue lines in and around the Königsallee, where P-signs will tell you about the time limit. Note that most of the city is a Low Emission Zone (Umweltzone), so make sure to ask our staff about any vehicle restrictions.

The city is well-connected, which leaves you primed for further discovery of the fascinating western side of Germany. Driving in Germany is on the right-hand side of the road, as in the U.S. German freeways are called autobahns, prefixed with an ‘A’, and are toll-free throughout Germany. The speed limit on autobahns is 80mph, although you may come across the occasional stretch with no upper limit. On other main roads, speed limits fall to 60mph, while in built-up urban areas it’s 30mph.

Cologne is 25 miles to the south on the A57 autobahn, and the former capital city of Bonn a further 20 miles south. Düsseldorf’s airport is only 8 miles north of the city center via the B8. The city of Duisberg is 20 miles to the north, on the B8 and A59. Throughout Europe, seat belts are compulsory and the use of mobile or cell phones while driving is illegal.

A quick guide to Düsseldorf

Düsseldorf has more than enough to entertain all manner of travelers, with a well-preserved old town, stylish shopping districts and impressive modern art collections all to be discovered in this diverse corner of Germany.

The banks of the Rhine

The Rhine is the focal point of the city’s social and cultural life and the best way to enjoy the river is by strolling along the Rhine Embankment Promenade (Rheinuferpromenade), which is built on top of one of the city's busiest roads. This mile-long pedestrian route is an absolute joy on a warm summer’s evening and is lined with cafes, restaurants, galleries and shops to discover on one side, and the mighty Rhine on the other.

It runs from the Oberkassel Bridge in the north to the Rheinturm Tower at its southern end. This 240-meter high city landmark, built in 1981, has an observation deck that offers superb views of the city. The tower also doubles as a huge digital clock, the largest in the world.

Continue south from here to the city’s former port area, now reclaimed and revitalized by some of Europe's most striking modern architecture. Make sure you visit Neuer Zollhof, comprising a stunning complex of three gravity-defying office buildings at Media Harbor, designed by Frank Gehry, the architect behind Bilbao’s stunning Guggenheim Museum.

Explore the old town

Düsseldorf's Old Town (Altstadt), which can be reached from the Rhine Embankment, is remarkably well preserved. Start at the Marktplatz, site of the city’s imposing Town Hall (Rathaus). From here, head north along the banks of the Rhine to the majestic Castle Tower (Schlossturm), the only surviving section of the old castle that once dominated and protected the city. The tower houses the SchiffahrtsMuseum, a fascinating maritime center with exhibits on the history of shipbuilding and trade in the city.

Art through the ages

To the north of the Oberkassel Bridge is the excellent Museum of Art (Museum Kunstpalast), with displays from the 3rd century BC through to the present day, including fine art, sculptures and drawings, as well as graphic art, photos and applied art. Among the many highlights are works by Caravaggio, Dali and Warhol, as well as members of the Düsseldorf School of Painting and Expressionism. The museum also stages theatrical performances and classical concerts.

Shop in style

If shopping is your thing, head straight for the Königsallee, Düsseldorf’s most elegant shopping street, known to locals as the ‘Kö’. This mile-long stretch of exclusive boutiques and stores, luxury arcades and art galleries, runs all the way from Graf-Adolf-Platz in the south to the Hofgarten in the north, along both sides of the city’s former moat. This 30-meter-wide tree-lined stretch of water is lined with numerous restaurants and cafés and makes a great spot for a well-earned lunch break or coffee stop. 

Baroque and roll

An easy 20-minute drive from the city center lies Schloss Benrath, a beautiful baroque palace built in 1756-1773 for the Elector, Carl Theodor. The sumptuous interior is home to three excellent museums which feature various aspects of life in the 18th century. Don’t miss the chance to stroll around the enchanting palace park and gardens.

A proud city with rich culture, world-class art and a sense of fun, Düsseldorf is one of the finest cities in the west of Germany. Arrange car rental in Düsseldorf and you’re already on your way to a great vacation or business trip.
