I think the buildings in Oberkassel along the Rhein are some of the prettiest in the city! On top of that, there are nice shops, restaurants and plenty of cute coffee shops on the main street. My dog loves this part of the city because she can explore the banks of the Rhein and the green area there without a... More

So proud that's my neighborhood. On the pricey side when it comes to house rental prices, BUT the quality of life is superb. So many dining, commuting, relaxing and joyful entertainment options. The architecture is brilliant with many art-nouveau buildings which remained intact during WW. Check my attached photo from Belsenplatz

Oberkassel is located on the left hand side of the river Rhine (the city center and the Altstadt are on the right hand side of the Rhine) and is probably the best and most expensive neigborhood of Düsseldorf. Much more quiet than the Altstadt and Oberkassel has nice restaurants and pubs. In summer there is the Oberkasseler Kermis (huge).

If I were to live in Dusseldorf, I would live right here. That is, if I had the money for it. Nonetheless, every time I come to Dusseldorf, I enjoy taking a stroll through these streets.

Quiet. Convenient. Posh. Green, well maintained and very safe, this area od Düsseldorf is considered the top (expensive!) location to buy/rent and a very popular spot to visit. Located alongside the Rhine river, everything around Oberkassel is walking distance. Good combination of restaurants and bars, local shopping and some impressive outdoors.

It rained for the whole week in June, everyday, several times a day. The temp around 12-16°C did not stop me from walking from Spichernplatz across the bridge to Oberkassel. The main road Brusseler was uninteresting. The church corner of Brusseler and Shorlemerstrasse where a beautiful wedding was celebrated that saturday: huge fanfare, traditional beer truck, costume, feather et al.... More

if you are in Dusseldorf this is a must place to visit in when sun sets down. Lots of nice restaurants in the river bank where you can enjoy the view.

Beautiful, beautiful area in Düsseldorf! We crossed the bridge by foot (yes, it was windy) and took loads of beautiful photos on both sides of the bridge. I feel like we could have walked around forever and keep on spotting beautiful houses and cute little details. The day was sunny and this place is carved in my mind as a... More

Oberkassel is a very elegant and "green" district of Düsseldorf and to get here you have to cross to the other part of the river. The architecture of most buildings is very beautiful and lovely to watch, definitely these house belong to wealthy people. Every and each house has something interesting about itself, they are a lovely view on a... More
