Altstadt, Altbier

I will be visiting Dusseldorf briefly next month for the first time since the mid 1980s.

I remember the Altstadt was the place to go out and I also remember the altbier served from wooden casks (by gravity, not a pump).

Which part of the Altstadt is the best to go for bars that might serve this sort of beer?

Many thanks in advance.

Which Altbier would you recommend trying? We are going for the 1st time this weekend and I've not tried it before.

This article from the Washington Post is an excellent introduction into the different beer cultures in Cologne and Düsseldorf: https:/… Füchschen and Uerige are a must in D'dorf.

Thanks for this info. We have booked a restaurant on the Saturday and they serve Fuchschen so that is good. What is your opinion on Schlosser Alt...............I have seen a lot of bad reviews on this beer but never tried it.

Afaik Schlösser is not even brewed in Düsseldorf anymore but in Dortmund. It is an Alt brand marketed nationwide by the Radeberger group, Germany’s largest beer corporation. Oh well...

I will give that a miss then. I haven't heard anything good about this beer yet!

Can you recommend any traditional German restaurants to go to? We are booked in at Vossen on the Saturday night and there for 3 further nights.

Try here, it's a bit of a Dusseldorf institution. The beer is excellent and the food is hearty and simple.

Uerige, Schumacher and Füchsen are the most classy ones. All 3 are in Altstadt
