Going Out in Düsseldorf

Going out in Dusseldorf is fun and the so-called Rhenish lust for living infectious. One hub of entertainment is the old town (Altstadt) with door after door providing visitors with apparently the longest bar in the world. Some of the bistros, restaurants, cafés and great clubs are second to none.

Going Out in Neuss

A healthy selection of cuisines are dotted all across town. Excellent coffee in many bistros or sweet Asian beverages are just as available as tasty traditional German and international fare. And the delicious taste of Turkish cuisine in many cafés and restaurants has a long tradition in Neuss.

Going Out in the Ruhr Metropolis

The variety of cuisines available in Ruhr can satisfy just about any palate on popular streets in locations such as Essen's Rüttenscheider Strasse or at exclusive zones such as the harbour in Duisburg. Snack bars, sushi bars and lively nightlife in clubs and bars round off the choice for going out.

Not quite the prefererence of southern Europeans for a quick espresso, residents choose a cafe latte or cappuccino. Nowadays more unique, individual cafés have sprouted almost everywhere. Most local cafés brew superb latte, nearly all of which prepare to go or take away as well.

Most bistros in the cities close to the Rhine and Ruhr rivers are privately run and, perhaps wishing to attract a broader clientele, often serve a full menu or double up as a café. They often cluster in more gentrified urban regions and tourist areas where tastes and demands have developed.
