It may be tucked away on the western fringes of Germany, but those who dismiss Düsseldorf as a provincial backwater do so at their peril. With innovative architecture, incredible attractions, impressive shops and (given its size) an astonishingly vibrant art scene, the North Rhine-Westphalia capital is one of the country’s most attractive destinations, with a wealth of things to do. (Oh, and like many German cities, its nightlife is a total revelation.) And if you’re looking for a play to stay, an Airbnb could well be your most affordable option. We’ve taken a look through Düsseldorf’s very best Airbnbs – so take a look, and start making your travel plans!

Düsseldorf's best Airbnbs

One-bed apartment in the city centre

If being at the centre of the action is your idea of a great holiday, then this comfortable apartment is the place for you. The one-bed is located within strolling distance of Altstadt (the old town), Königsallee shopping street, and more bars and restaurants than you can shake a flaggan of Altbier at.

Maisonette with roof terrace near the Rhine

Get a room with a view when you stay at this light and airy maisonette. It has large windows looking out over the city and the surrounding Altstadt area, but also a roof terrace. Bonus. Nearby you can enjoy the river with a stroll along the Rheinuferpromenade.

Large four-bed near the train station

Okay, the canary-yellow decor choice will probably divide opinion. But this place is a perfect choice for groups of friends, and ones who are travelling throughout Europe, perhaps – it’s cheap, sleeps up to four, and is located very close to Düsseldorf’s train station.

Pretty-as-a-picture studio apartment

This charming two-bed apartment is a good one for families. It’s spacious, is surrounded by supermarkets and other handy shops, and has a balcony too. The area it’s located in – on the west side of the Rhine – is relatively peaceful, but the centre of Düsseldorf is only a tram journey away.

Houseboat in Medienhafen

Don’t fancy staying on dry land? Book this houseboat, which is moored in the glitzy Media Harbour stretch of the Rhine. It sleeps up to four people in a double bed and bunk bed and is nicely kitted out, too – even sporting underfloor heating that comes in handy for the chillier months. Toasty.

Friedrichstadt loft with top tech

The owner of this Friedrichstadt loft describes it as having a ‘home cinema’. This might be a bit of an overstatement, but it’s certainly got an impressive media system with various pay-per-view TV channels. A good choice if you fancy throwing a little (note, little) party before heading out to explore Düsseldorf’s nightlife.

Studio in Carlstadt with balcony

This apartment is located in an Art Nouveau building on Carlstadt, which was originally built in 1881. Since it's set on a bustling street in the Old Town, you'll encounter open-air market stalls selling traditional Teutonic fair as soon as you step outside. Think: bratwurst alongside mouthwatering snacks like Indian cheese (mmmm). Oh and luckily, the entire area isn't usually over-saturated with tourists so you'll get a more authentic feel of Carlstadt. Winner.

Upscale three-bed in Gerresheim

If you and your fellow travellers have the budget for something a little luxurious, take a look at this split-level apartment in Gerresheim, a glitzy district near the Grafenberg forest. It boasts three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a 55-inch television and a roof terrace.

Gorgeous apartment in Gerresheim

Another property in Gerresheim, this place is homely and inviting over chic and stylish. Its floor-to-ceiling windows lets plenty of light into the kitchen and lounge, while a trip up the spiral staircase takes you to a large bedroom and bathroom. And if you fancy ditching the home cooking one evening, there’s an Italian restaurant just opposite. Wunderbar!

Three-bed house a little out of town

This place might be outside of Düsseldorf proper – in neighboring Dormagen – but we’ve included it as it offers you a fairly rare thing: a whole house to yourself. And if the maximum of five guests were to stay, this would still be cheaper than most properties in the city itself. Plus, take a look at those beautiful surroundings!

Stylish one-bed in Unterbilk

In a city that’s full of pretty swish-looking properties, this one-bed apartment still stands out. With its monochrome decor and contemporary furnishings, this place would be an ideal choice for a couple who want to make the most of the trendy Unterbilk district, full of fashionable galleries, restaurants and boutiques. With two small balconies to chill out on too, you can enjoy city sights in the evenings, when the lights turn on and the streets have a delicious nocturnal buzz.
