Travelers have plenty of options for hostels in Düsseldorf -- most Düsseldorf hostels are in the center of the city and within walking distance from the train station. You can find cheap hostels in Düsseldorf with a great location. As Düsseldorf has one of the largest airports in Germany, you may need to get to or from the airport -- this is very easy as the Deutsche Bahn has a stop at the airport and can take you directly to the Düsseldorf train station or to some of the other adjacent cities.

One of the main attractions in Düsseldorf is the Largest Fair on the Rhine in July, a huge carnival that is visited annually by millions of tourists. Needless to say, the prices of Düsseldorf hostels go up noticeably during the fair and you need to book well in advance if you are part of a bigger group. Another festival is the Karneval in November and it lasts for two days.

If you are interested in arts, you must definitely visit the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf with its rich art collections. There are more than ten theaters, including the Düsseldorfer Schauspielhaus (with more than four hundred years of performances), the Deutsche Oper am Rhein, and the Theateratelier Takelgarn.

There are many places for trying the local specialties Rheinischer Sauerbraten (a meat dish, literally translated as "sour roast"), Himmel und Äd (literally translated as "heaven and earth," this is a dish containing apples and potatoes), Reibekuchen (literally translated as "grated cakes"), and other food. You also must try the famous local Altbier. Düsseldorf also hosts many concerts and has great clubs for electronic music. In short, the city has it all for a memorable stay.
