It may be hidden away on the western fringes of Germany, but those who disregard Düsseldorf as a rural backwater do so at their own jeopardy. With innovative architecture, unbelievable attractions, awesome shops and (given its size) a delightfully vibrant art scene, the North Rhine-Westphalia capital is one of the country’s most charming destinations, with a wealth of things to do. (Oh, and like many German cities, its nightlife is an absolute revelation.) And if you’re looking for a place to stay, an Airbnb could well be your most affordable option. We’ve taken a look through the best Airbnbs in Düsseldorf – so take a peek and start making your travel plans.

Düsseldorf’s best Airbnbs

1. The modern rooftop apartment near District 6

If you're looking for an apartment with a 40sqm rooftop terrace overlooking half of Düsseldorf, this is the Airbnb for you. Ideal for two guests visiting the city, this apartment offers a one-bedroom apartment with everything you could possibly need. Kitchen amenities include an induction stove, fridge, and coffee machine while the rest of the creature comforts include modern furniture, a wardrobe bed and a built-in wardrobe, so you can really feel at home. You'll settle in here quick – time to explore?

2. The family home in Hamm

This stunning guesthouse is one of the historic buildings you can rent on Airbnb in Düsseldorf – and we're here for it. Offering families the experience of staying in an 1820-listed courtyard complex, this large open-plan studio can accommodate up to six guests on request. The guest house is located near the garden – with direct access to the garden terrace. As for amenities, the property has all the essentials, along with a washing machine (in the building) and a clothes drying rack - in case you need to get some much-needed mid-trip laundry done. Well, that's one less thing to worry about with the kids around, right?


3. The terraced penthouse with river views in Neuss

This rooftop penthouse is THE Airbnb for panoramic views of Düsseldorf all-round. This stunning property has modern finishes, including an open-plan kitchen and living space for cooking up a storm, a free-standing tub for soaking away the day and of course, the wooden decked terrace complete with a gas BBQ and outdoor seating for checking out the epic sunsets. As the property is located slightly out of the city (just think of the views), transport links are essential – and it has them. The train into the city/old town takes just 15 minutes. Cheers to that.

4. The 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, which is 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.


5. The carefully curated city centre apartment

If you like your home to be ‘just so’ then you’ll appreciate the effort that has gone into making this centrally-located apartment a truly stylish home. We particularly rate the black-on-black super chic kitchen set up and the adaptable mood lighting in the main living space. The kitchen kind of sets the scene for this home: it’s lovely to look at but not just style over substance. In fact, there’s everything you’d need here to rustle up a proper meal – but when you’re in such a great location, why would you want, or indeed need, to stay in? Stay here and you’ll be in Little Tokyo, the Japanese district of Düsseldorf, which is within walking distance of Königsallee and a great variety of bars and restaurants.

6. The trendy three-sleeper in the central Düsseldorf

Boasting a stylish interior, plus a location near to the Messe Expo Centre, the old town and the Rhein, this spot is ideal for a small group of friends to share on a city break. Shopping, dining and nightlife are all nearby and with easy transport links, including close proximity to the airport, it’s a functional spot, too. Besides, the cost is pretty minimal, which is great news if you’re on a budget.


7. The homely flat for four in Duisburg

Sometimes Airbnbs can feel a little clinical, but this host has made an extra effort for the apartment to be comfy and warm. In their words, they want it to feel like your own 'little house'. Only ten minutes from downtown, it’s in a great location, if you can tear yourself away from this cute space for the walk. 

8. The sweet courtyard single room in Neuss

If you’re looking for the full experience, this courtyard room for one will do the trick. There’s a highly recommended baguette shop just around the corner, and a further 10 minutes will take you to a whole host of cute shops and bakeries. This is a simple space inside. No frills. Single bed only. But the exterior is enough to make you want to visit. 


9. The 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.
