Top Ten Reasons To Visit Düsseldorf

Today I was spending my lunch break with a good friend of mine who has never been to Düsseldorf before, but stopped by for a visit. To cut a long story short, while we were sitting there talking she suddenly said to me: “Well, you know. I like Düsseldorf already, but I don’t know anything about the city. What is there to do here or what makes it special?” I immediately began to list the many reasons to visit Düsseldorf.  I realized that others may also be interested in my list, so I thought it appropriate I share them here!
