The days in Düsseldorf can be quite long. But not because the time hardly passes. The city simply does not sleep. The cultural offer of Dusseldorf leaves visitors amazed and enthusiastic. Düsseldorf is more than the international fair, the airport or the Rhine. Düsseldorf is the state capital of North Rhine-Westphalia and so is it. Colorful, entertaining, lively and progressive. All this is reflected in the city's cultural offer, which includes much more than museums and theaters. Let us start a little foray through the leisure activities of Düsseldorf.
In the case of culture, of course, one thinks of classical offers such as museums, theaters or opera houses. Of course, Düsseldorf can offer it all. The city offers its visitors 26 museums and over 100 art galleries. The Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen, the Museum Kunstpalast Düsseldorf or the NRW-Forum are just some of them. Especially in contemporary art, the state capital is at the forefront. The varied classical cultural offer is rounded off with the German opera on the Rhine, the Capitol theater, the ballet or the Düsseldorfer Schauspielhaus. But the cheerfulness is not too short. Whether Kommödchen, FLIN or Roncalli Apollo Variety under the bridge over the Rhine, the city offers various cabarets and bars where comedians and artists can perform. A small tip: The Art: Card gives you the right to free admission to a variety of museums and institutions in Düsseldorf, Neuss or Mettmann.
These two cities, Neuss and Mettmann, lead us out of Düsseldorf into the modern and diverse environment. An excellent public transport network ensures optimal access to the surrounding cities. In Wuppertal you can go by the world famous Schwebebahn, go shopping in Essen or enjoy nature in the Neanderthal in Mettmann. Also the Dutch border with the outlet center Roermond is not far away. People of Dusseldorf love their environment and often leave the city to experience the green landscape.
If this has not yet been said, the city's sports offer is recommended. In the summer of 2017 the Tour de France, one of the biggest sporting events in the world, comes to Dusseldorf, but also off this event, the city on the Rhine has a lot to offer. There would be, for example, the number one conversation when you are in the old town: the services of the local football club Fortuna Düsseldorf, currently only in the second league. The visit to the local stadium, the Esprit-Arena, right next to the exhibition center, is actually a duty for every soccer-enthusiast. Especially with the duels against Bochum or Duisburg it is often hot. Ice hockey fans, on the other hand, get their money's worth at DEG. In the ISS Dome, the air above the ice is particularly bright when the rival from Cologne is a guest. With a high-class table tennis and a wide range of horse sports as well as various golf courses in the region the offer is rounded off.
