Tips for Driving in Düsseldorf

Navigating the streets of Düsseldorf is easier than many of Germany's more populated cities. The roads are well maintained and the infrastructure has been specifically designed to accommodate modern driving. However, Düsseldorf still experiences congestion during rush hour. Driving in Old Town--an area that is full of one-way streets, cobbled roads, narrow alleys, insufficient parking, and vehicle restriction zones--is one of the greatest challenges for Düsseldorf drivers.

In terms of rules and regulations, bear in mind that all vehicle occupants must wear their seat belt while in the car, and children under the age of 12 cannot ride in the front passenger seat. A blinking yellow light at an intersection means drivers need to stop, and then proceed if the intersection is clear. The basic speed limit is 50 kilometres per hour in urban areas and 100 kilometres per hour on highways. While many people believe the Autobahn doesn't have a speed limit, that's only true for stretches of highway in the sparsely populated countryside. Even then, there's a suggested speed limit of 130 kilometres per hour.

Things to See and Do in Düsseldorf

Germany offers some great places to shop, and Düsseldorf is no exception. Konigsallee provides a stretch of upscale shops and department stores for luxury items, while Old Town has some of the most quaint and unique gift shops in the city. There are also numerous shopping malls located throughout Düsseldorf.

For unbeatable views of the city, head to the observation decks at the 240.5-metre high Rheinturm. Visitors can then check out the rotating Günnewig Rheinturm Restaurant Top 180 and get breathtaking views of the city and River Rhine as they dine. Those who love history won't want to miss an opportunity to explore Kaiserswerth. This historic area is home to the ruins of the Kaiserpfalz, the royal palace of Emperor Friedrich Barbarossa. A few steps from the ruins are cafés and beer gardens where visitors can relax and enjoy some good food and drink.

With Skyscanner, travellers can search for good deals on flights, hotel rooms, and rental cars in Düsseldorf and spend the rest of their time enjoying everything the city has to offer.
