Düsseldorf’s worldly appeal is nothing new. Napoleon himself fell for the charms of this city on the Rhine, dubbing it 'Little Paris'. Founded 730 years ago, the capital of the North-Rhine Westphalia state is certainly steeped in history, most evident in the narrow, cobbled streets of the picturesque medieval Old Town. But the city has a sophisticated modern edge, too. Gleaming new architecture has transformed the skyline, and the ever-expanding arts scene – 26 museums and 100-plus galleries – rivals that of much larger cities. Add to that stylish shopping, vibrant nightlife and great restaurants, and there are more than enough attractions in Düsseldorf to keep any visitor busy.
