Going Out:

Most theatres, museums, bars and restaurants are located in the Altstadt (old town) of Düsseldorf. The Altstadt is also called “the longest bar of the world” because of its very high bar density. In restaurants, the service fee is included in the menu price; however, it is common to give a tip of ~ 5 %. The Altstadt is located near the Rhine river. You can reach it by underground train (lines U79 or U73) departing from the station ”Universität-Ost/Botanischer Garten”; exit at station “Heinrich-Heine-Allee”.
