On the cutting edge of modernity Located along the river Rhine, Düsseldorf is one of Germany's economic centers. Home to 3.2 million people, this beautiful city can sometimes be overlooked as a place for business and not fun. And while there are no famous castles or cathedrals here, there are modern marvels destined to become historic in the future. But first, a glimpse into the past. The Old Town or Altstadt, was almost destroyed during World War two but you wouldn't know it. Rebuilt according to historic plans, the area is now a popular shopping spot and on weekends, it turns into what's known as the "Longest bar in the world." Within a half-mile, find nearly 260 drinking holes, coffee shops and brewing houses. Stop in for a taste of "Altbier" – a top-fermented dark beer. This is where the "old" stops in Düsseldorf. The city has been transformed into a modern metropolis with architecture to match. There's no need to scour the city for these superb structures. Just head to Media Harbour. Showcasing world-class architects like Frank Gehry, it has become a meeting point for architecture connoisseurs from all over the world. Learn more about Düsseldorf
