The Aldstadt (literally ‘Old Town’) is the historic heart of the German city of Düsseldorf. Despite being less than half of a square kilometer, this little borough is home to over 300 bars and discothèques, earning it the epithet of “the longest bar in the world”. Here is a list of restaurants to check out between drinking and sightseeing through the area.
The French and the Germans haven’t always been the most culturally compatible. However, the opposite is true at Parlin-Essen und Weinbar, located just off the banks of the Rhine River. There, German and French cuisines peacefully occupy the same menu, giving diners unexpected diversity within the realm of familiarity. For once, it is possible to enjoy fois gras terrine and Weiner schnitzel during the same meal. The same cultural mixing also proliferates on Parlin’s wine list. So, whether you decide to go German, French or somewhere in between, just be sure to save room for the tarte tatin at the end!
