Driving in Dusseldorf: parking and other tips

Driving in central Dusseldorf should be a problem, but like many other German cities, Dusseldorf also has an “environmental zone.” All cars are required to have a sticker showing their pollution category. Your car hire agency in Dusseldorf should have this taken care of though.

Parking in Dusseldorf is easy enough using different city car parks but for overnight parking, make sure your hotel in Dusseldorf has parking facilities available to its guests.

Road trips from Dusseldorf: what to do, what to see



Bonn is the former capital of West Germany and is located to the south of Dusseldorf on the Rhine River. It has a small-city feel to it with a rich culture and student atmosphere. Some call it “Italy’s most northern city” due to its cafe and summer garden culture.



Located just a stone’s throw from Cologne, Brühl is home to the impressively large Augustusburg Palace, one of Germany’s sites on the UNESCO World Heritage list. The palace contains one of the finest Rococco interiors in the world, with the main staircase being the highlight.



Germany’s industrial history is full of heritage and stories. Ruhr is an interesting place to discover Germany’s heavy industrial culture, just 50km north of Dusseldorf. It’s an essential stop along the Industrial Heritage Trail and was the centre of coal and steel industry in Germany.
