Oberkassel is one of the oldest and most favoured districts in Dusseldorf. It is directly across the mighty Rhine river from the old town - close enough to get the full city buzz, but still quiet and peaceful. There are many parks, cafe's, restaurants closeby and our favourite local brewery pub is only a short walk away.
While away the evening at the river, cheer on the team with the crowd at the football stadium or go shopping on Königsallee, affectionately known as the Kö. Amongst the most popular of these are the Old Town, the Hofgarten and the Media Harbour. Düsseldorf’s 50 districts all have their own charm and attractions. Düsseldorf is often referred to as the Culture City. Museum fans are in for a treat in the city: from art history to city history. Music also plays an important role in Düsseldorf; the Music Hall and the Opera House are just two of the many highlights.
Düsseldorf stands for internationality, diversity and openness. Great emphasis is placed on living together peacefully in the city. Citizens from around 180 nations live here. As if German food and drink was not enough, we also benefit from the tasty parts of all these different cultures!
Our apartment is a 2 minute walk from Barbarozzaplatz U-Bahn stop, which is serviced by 4 different lines (74, 75, 76, 77) so you'll never be more than 5 minutes waiting.
Although its only 3 stops to the centre of town, it’s also lovely to walk across the bridge to it.
Going the other way on the tram, the business area of Am Seestern/Hansaallee (Vodafone, Ericsson, Huawei etc) is a short 10 minute trip.
While we are well serviced by public transport, it’s easiest to take a taxi from the airport for the first time. It should take about 20 mins/30 euro depending on traffic. If you are arriving by train, all our trams go through the Main station, so it’s easiest to take one of them. If you are driving, there is overnight street parking, but please be careful of the times allowed. We also know of a place 10 minutes walk away with 24/7 free parking.
There are long walking and jogging routes along the river, which are really scenic. Several companies offer city bike hire, which are easy to sign up for online. Our favorite way of getting around is using Eddy’s, the electric city mopeds, also easy to register for online.
Further afield, there are so many interesting things to do. In North Rhine-Westphalia alone, there are hiking & biking trails, beautiful sights to see, castles to dream in, lakes to float in...you get the picture! You can easily visit Holland, Belgium and Luxembourg on day trips, tick them off the list.

We are an Irish/German couple in our late 40s. We are keen travelers, amateurish hikers, semi professional scoffers of good food and wine and dream about early retirement. We have been hosting on Airbnb for a while, but believe swapping will be so much more fun. We look forward to making new friends and seeing new places.
