Düsseldorf is rather easy to navigate on a bicycle. Official paths for cycling can be recognised by their typical red colour and can be found throughout the city. One-way streets that show a sign with a bike and the word free (frei) may be used against the flow of traffic.

Two rivers flow through Düsseldorf. The Rhine is one of the longest rivers and one of the most important waterways in Europe. The Düssel is one of the shortest with its most visible stretch flowing down the Königsallee and around the Köbogen to the Hofgarten.


Street Art

Many examples of street art can be found tucked away in residential side streets and more openly on house frontages or bridges. Kiefernstrasse is an exciting street to visit. In Düsseldorf, graffiti has outlived its day and property or vehicles are less defaced in most places.
