See one of Germany’s most sophisticated cities when you book flights to Düsseldorf with Ryanair! Dusseldorf is fantastic city that, at a glance, looks like it might be all business – all sharp suits and shining skyscrapers – but a closer look will show you that people there really like to loosen their ties and let their hair down once working the day is done. In the city centre you can shop all day, dine in top restaurants, and then enjoy a few drinks in the Altstadt - ‘the longest bar in the world’ in the evening. The swankiness of the city means that there lots of great cocktail bars, but seeing as Altbier is the city’s specialty, you might want to swap the martini glass for a pint glass when you book flights to Düsseldorf, and get stuck in to some local brew!
