Some people call Dusseldorf’s Altstadt the “longest bar in the world,” thanks to the hundreds of bars, restaurants and beer houses that line the street. Some people also say that Zum Uerige is home to the world’s best Altbier. In fact, the world champion beer sommelier has proclaimed Zum Uerige’s Altbier to be the best German regional beer, which is no small feat. It’s sad to smell like caramel with a hint of cocoa and oranges, but all you need to know is that it’s delicious and distinctive. Go to Zum Uerige for the beer, but stay for the Rheinish specialty snacks and the traditional German brewhouse atmosphere. Tip: when you’re done, put your coaster on top of your beer glass to get the server’s attention.
