Düsseldorf is the capital of North Rhine-Westphalia. This city is not often included in tourist routes and is not associated with classic Germany. This is not surprising, as it is located in the most industrial region of the country.

Recently, Düsseldorf has become the cultural capital of Germany. The city holds a carnival and numerous major exhibitions. Eurovision contest was also held here.

Düsseldorf left extremely positive impression. Almost all tourists start their walk on the Royal Alley (Königsallee) that crosses all roads leading from the train station to the downtown. It is a luxury boulevard, formerly known as the Chestnut Alley. After an incident in 1848, when horse manure was thrown at King Friedrich Wilhelm IV, the street was renamed "Königsallee" :) At the end of the canal that runs in the middle of the alley is a very beautiful Triton fountain.

The Carsch-Haus building, built in the Art Nouveau style by architect Otto Engler, was demolished during the construction of the subway, and then restored with an offset of 23 m.

There's an old city, but small and not very old. You can get around the downtown (except the Media Harbor) in 60-90 minutes, which is quite convenient for tourists. Here you can find a house in which Heinrich Heine was born. But apart from this fact, the house itself is unremarkable. There are much more beautiful houses on the same street.

In this house writer and poet Heinrich Heine was born.

Market Square is the most beautiful place in the old city. On the Castle Square (Burgplatz) you can find two very interesting sculptures in addition to the tower. One of them, "Two Boys Turning Cartwheel", is a symbol of the city. However, the second sculptural composition, "Becoming a City", is more interesting. It symbolically represents the 700-year history of Düsseldorf.

The Tower is the only surviving part of the XIII century Elector's Palace. The building itself was burned down in 1872.

We like cities with waterfronts, they are very picturesque. Düsseldorf waterfront is a tourist attraction. It's noticeable that a lot of labor was invested in its design and development. Note tiles in the form of waves. If you walk and look under your feet, the tiles will resemble water. A lot of chestnut trees are planted along the waterfront, creating a kind of a covered pavilion in summer and autumn.

TV Tower (Rhine Tower) is located almost in the center of the city. It is the architectural centerpiece of Düsseldorf. The tower will be present almost on every photo with river scenery. At the top of the tower you can find an observation deck and a revolving restaurant.

The city is located on the right bank of the Rhine, but on the left, among the meadows with sheep, there are several elite areas such as Oberkassel.

However, the most interesting place in the city is the new area called Media Harbor. It is named after the TV tower that was built here in 1982. In the 1990s, the "modernist" buildings started to appear here. Be sure to walk across the disctrict. One of the most unusual houses is the one with colored men. This is an art project called Flossis from German artist Rosalie.
