Fashion Capital of Germany
Renowned for its fashion and trade fairs, Dusseldorf offers visitors vibrant nightlife and a wide range of shopping options. One of the nation's economic centers, this city is located in a densely populated area along the Rhine river. A hub of international business and finance, Dusseldorf is also known for its academy of fine arts and its pioneering influence on electronic/experimental music, itself a draw for trendy tourism. This cosmopolitan city is home to a relatively large Japanese community that exerts a considerable influence on the region's culture and cuisine. In Dusseldorf, you can explore not only Japanese gardens and Buddhist temples--truly unique sights in Europe--but also numerous trendy Japanese restaurants. Despite its many multicultural offerings, Dusseldorf's main tourist attractions remain the annual Rhine river carnival and the historic town center. The latter, a must-see on any local itinerary, is packed with more than 300 pubs and is known worldwide as the "longest bar in the world." Dusseldorf is in North Rhine-Westphalia.
