Spent an evening at the Christmas market here enjoying a few Gluhwein. Really seasonal and friendly market that will fill your soul with seasonal cheer(or maybe that's just the Gluhwein) if in town it's a must

We only had a quick wander through to find food (loads of options). Ended up in a bar with table a table dancer, not sleazy, and a great environment.

Lots of nice places to eat drink and see at this time of year. You have got to visit the Irish bar for a good pint of Guinness.

We been for Carnival the first time. Was one of the best (after Maspalomas). Then decided to go for the Kirmis by the river in September and to olde town afterwards. Party with the Rheinländer is always very nice.

Walking around for the old town in December you can move from a square to another, eating food, drinking hot wine to warm you or a beer. It's full of Christmas lights and booth where vendors sells handicrafts. Moreover it's close to the main shopping malls and shops.

Went for the Xmas markets which was good.Nice stalls shops etc..But beware the Bar strip at night,Constant beggars/homeless coming up to you whilst eating/drinking and some become aggressive,no police presence at all which is surprising for the times we live in!

Loved the old town in Dusseldorf, plenty of quaint Streets with nice shops and restaurants and bars. Lovely area to wander and take in the atmosphere of the Christmas markets

The are is just plain cool. It's an old town that the locals actually use. The big bar scene is found here, but there are also streets full of cute restaurants as well as calmer areas to sit and enjoy a coffee.
