The Dusseldorf tradition, craftsmanship and trade to be exhibited and thereby the possibilities for shops to improve, goes back to the year 1811. At that time, Napoleon visited the city on the Rhine, which at that time was under French domination and had been economically affected by this foreign administration. 14 companies presented their products at that time and Napoleon should have been enthusiastic. However, only 70 years later, in 1880, the next trade fair was organized in order to put the artisan of Dusseldorf into the broad light of the public. More than one million visitors will have seen the various trades on the site of today's zoological garden. The development up to this day went steeply uphill. The exhibition grounds in the north of Düsseldorf are considered one of the most modern in the world and are ideally connected to public transport.
It is no wonder, therefore, that hundreds of thousands of visitors go to the city every year to visit one of the numerous trade fairs. For example, the "Beauty International", where every year the latest products for cosmetics and body care are presented. The "boot" in Dusseldorf is probably also for people who have never been interested in the sea and the corresponding watercraft. With "drupa", "interpack", "prowein" or "medica" a broad specialist audience is addressed, which comes to the dates from all corners of the world.
The “Messe Dusseldorf “ is therefore regarded as the international sign of the city and beyond the borders of North Rhine-Westphalia as an important location factor. The location right at the airport and the good traffic connections to the city center make the trade fair visit an entertaining experience, which can be spent in a restaurant in the old town at the "longest bar in the world". Since hotel and guest rooms are always booked out at fair times, an early booking is recommended. Our apartments in Golzheim and Kaiserswerth are ideal for fair visitors, are fully furnished and offer every comfort. And the best? By connecting to the subway in front of the front door you can take the U78 directly to the entrance of the fair. What more do you want?
