DRUPA 2004 -- Doing a Full Drupa
PI: What else can visitors do in Düsseldorf?
TEICHMANN: There is much more to the city than just the fairgrounds. Düsseldorf is renowned as one of the most attractive cities in Europe and as a first-class shopping location. The exclusive Königsallee offers an exquisite range of goods and is the top address for high-end fashion stores.
Located in the heart of Europe, Düsseldorf offers an excellent infrastructure, a wide selection of hotels for every budget, a variety of restaurants for every taste and cultural activities galore—opera, ballet, drama, concerts, theater, museums and art galleries.
Düsseldorf is just as interesting at night as it is during the day—numerous clubs and bars offer non-stop entertainment and Düsseldorf's Old Town enjoys an international reputation as the "longest bar in the world." After a hectic day at the fairgrounds, enjoy the charisma, cuisine and culture of this cosmopolitan capital.
The Düsseldorf WelcomeCard is the cheapest and simplest way of getting to know the city. It gives buyers free entry to many museums, various sightseeing attractions and leisure facilities. The card is also good for substantially reduced prices on tickets to Düsseldorf theaters and musical events. Order the WelcomeCard from Messe Düsseldorf North America before leaving for Germany. Cards can be purchased for $9 single/$18 group (valid 24 hours), $14 single/$28 group (valid 48 hours) or $19 single/$38 group (valid 72 hours).
