Dusseldorf is convenient as a transfer point, since a flight to Dusseldorf, along with a flight to Berlin - is usually the cheapest option to travel to Germany. The railway station is located directly at the airport (Dusseldorf airport site), to the city to go for fifteen minutes.

The city is large, but historically, always less significant than the surrounding large cities of North Rhine-Westphalia.
Church of St. John
Johanneskirche (XIX century)
Rhine. Quay in the Old Town
The main attraction of Dusseldorf is the Basilica of St. Lambert. This is the oldest building in the city, which began to be built before the Dusseldorf acquired the status of the city (1288).
Basilica of St. Lambert (XII-XIV century)
Another attraction is the Royal Alley (Königsallee) - the main shopping street, in the middle of which flows the river Düssel, which flows into the Rhine.
A little further - a huge park with ponds and ducks-swans.
Walking along Dussell in the direction of the Rhine, I came across a funny sculptural composition.
I do not understand what all this means, but it is possible to look at this accumulation of objects, people and separate parts of the body for a long time. And, even here, in not the most tourist town and not in the busiest place, tourists managed to rub their hands with their severed hands. :)
In general, Dusseldorf sights can be seen in half a day.
But, in the immediate vicinity there are several interesting places, for example, Zons.
Yes, there are a lot of shops in the city, shoppers will be interested.
