Barrier-free experiences in Düsseldorf and the neanderland
Stone-age culture meets modern life
Düsseldorf and the neanderland are full of contrasts: Shopping and experiences in nature, modern art and stone-age culture, event highlights, and a break in green nature – discover your ideal mix!
Düsseldorf – that is the Königsallee with its stylish shops and high-quality boutiques, the old town with the “world’s longest counter”, as well as unique architecture such as the Gehrybauten in the Media Harbour.
Scene quarter and stone-age art
The city on the river Rhine is also known for its scene quarters – such as Flingern or Bilk, with many small shops, cafés, and galleries, as well as a renowned museum landscape, including the NRW art collection or the Museum Kunstpalast. The neanderland, in the Mettman district adjacent to Düsseldorf to the east, has art to discover as well. This is stone-age art, specifically. The Neanderthal Museum is dedicated to these special ancestors of mankind, excitingly presenting interesting information on the history of the development of modern man.
From cotton to finished yarn
In Ratingen, the LVR-Industriemuseum Cromford is the world’s only museum to present the processing of cotton into finished yarn using original 18th century machines. Visitors can enjoy coffee and cake in a historical ambience in the museum café as well.
