Was two times in Dusseldorf and all of them during Christmas markets so I really enjoyed visiting the square as there was really nice and charming.

This is the old historic centre of Dusseldorf, right in the middle of the Altstadt (Old town). Here you are surrounded by the lovely streets of this lively old quarter of the capital city of this very industrial area of Germany. Unfortunately, as in most German cities nearly all of the building have been reconstructed since the end of WW2,... More

The buildings in this square are really beautiful and there is also a very nice statue in the middle. A must for photographic enthusiasts. Unfortunately the views are obstructed during mid November and December due to the Christmas markets stalls. The Christmas markets themselves always attract quite a number of people.

Lovely area to enjoy the Christmas markets, lots of nice stalls in the area. Nice traditionally bars and restaurants in the area. A Ferris wheel for the usual nice views of a city (really good value for money you get a good few cycles on it). Also there are few nice souvenir shops to pick up any of your Düsseldorf... More

Visited for the Christmas market, which was magical, there was a huge Christmas Tree which we absolutely adored and loads of artisan stalls to do all of the Christmas Shopping. Carousel is apparently 100 years old and the whole Platz just oozes history and charm, I loved it!

We could see the old buildings around and admire them with the sparkle of lots of lit up tents, and plenty of Gluhwein. In the early afternoon it was pleasant, by late evening it was very crowded. As Christmas markets in Germany go, this was by far the biggest or most atmospheric, but it had all the basic components!

A historic square in the old town , just on the river. It's now got a giant wheel in addition to the famous tower. We visited over Christmas and the square was the site of a market full of German food , glüwein , and Christmas gift items. Lots of Resturants around the square as well. Our hotel was a... More

Cold today walking down near the front. Lots of shops, bars and restaurants to look around and the added bonus of the Christmas stalls, beautiful area.

This place has a very typical german architecture and is nice to see. Especially if you are lucky enough to visit it during a festival or market, this places gets very charming.
