The city is large and the best way to get around is to rent a car in Dusseldorf as driving in Germany is easy for anyone with driving experience.
Most visitors will want to go into the the Altstadt (Old Town). This is the heart of the city and is nestled between Königsallee Street and the Rhine river. This is a great place to start your exploration of the city.
Once you get to the Altstadt area, take a stroll down old, cobble-stoned streets, go inside the churches, and visit the local brewery pubs. You can also visit the Burgplatz square and see the old palace tower and enjoy any of the small cafes.
When you take advantage of car rentals in Dusseldorf, you can drive from the Altstadt over to the Media Harbor. This is a must-see, one-of-a-kind attraction. It used to be an industrial harbor but has now been transformed into a contemporary architectural wonder. Here you can see post-modern buildings mixed in with older building elements. The area also houses many media companies (hence its name), fashion studios, and plenty of modern restaurants and bars.
Generally, you can rent a car in Dusseldorf with your home country driver's license. You must be over 21 (sometimes even older) to rent a car in Germany. Seatbelts are mandatory for both front and the back passengers. Police can charge 30€ (on-the-spot) fine for each person not wearing a seat belt. Also, children under 12 are not allowed to ride in the front seat.
