Luxury holidays in Dusseldorf

When he passed through in 1806, Napoleon dubbed cosmopolitan Düsseldorf, North Rhine-Westphalia’s capital city, ‘a little Paris’. Today, the city is equally impressive, with avant-garde architecture, stylish boutiques on Königsallee, buzzing nightlife – it’s home to the so-called ‘longest bar in the world’ – and an established art scene. It may be all buttoned-up in the business district, but the Altstadt is charmingly cobble-stoned, habourside Medienhafen has a growing nightlife scene, and the Japanese Quarter dishes out some of the best sushi and ramen in the country.
