Near the Rhine with good transport connections
The new H2 Hotel Düsseldorf Seestern is located in the excellently connected business district and popular hotel location of Am Seestern. The district has a quick connection to the Merkur Spiel-Arena, the Düsseldorf trade fair, the airport and the A 44, A 52 and A 57 motorways in the form of the B 7. With the “Am Seestern” station on the U 77 line, Am Seestern also has its own connection to the city rail system, meaning that you can get from your accommodation in Düsseldorf to the lively old town quickly and conveniently. The Rhine is within walking distance and is an inviting scene for a walk, and is also only a few minutes’ walk to Lörick baths.
The heart of Düsseldorf beats in the old town. In the alleys between the Rhine and “Heinrich-Heine-Allee”, small shops await you for a shopping spree and historic buildings that bring old Düsseldorf to life. The Gothic St. Lambertus church is the oldest building and landmark of the city. The castle square with the castle tower, Düssel river and the town hall also lend flair to the old town.
Ever since “die Toten Hosen” sang “Wir haben in Düsseldorf die längste Theke der Welt” (We have the longest bar in the world in Düsseldorf” everyone knows about it: Düsseldorf's old town is famous for its 250 pubs, bars, restaurants and small breweries where the “Altbier” never runs out. Travelling here from the H2 Hotel Düsseldorf Seestern takes less than 15 minutes with the U77.
The “Königsallee” is one of Düsseldorf's landmarks and one of the most famous shopping streets in Germany. The “Kö” is known for its luxury shops, but is also a landmark in terms of urban development. The boulevard is characterised by magnificent 19th century houses as well as the tree-lined town moat, fountains and bridges flowing in the middle. Lanterns, railings, telephone booths, clocks and kiosks were also specially designed for “Kö” – which is protected as a historic monument.
The “Kö-Bogen” designed by Daniel Libeskind with its curved facade, which establishes the connection to the “Hofgarten”, is a brand new treasure. Travelling here from the H2 Hotel Düsseldorf Seestern takes less than 15 minutes with the U77.
The promenade along the banks of the Rhine on the edge of the old town offers relaxation after a shopping tour. The river, Rhine meadows and the district of Oberkassel on the other bank show their most beautiful side. Take a boat trip, stroll along the promenade or enjoy a refreshment in the cafés and bars on the shore. The 240-metre-high “Rheinturm” rises between the promenade and the “MedienHafen”. A rotating restaurant awaits you at a height of 172.5 metres, as well as a self-service restaurant and a viewing platform.
The special feature of the tower’s portholes equipped with coloured LEDs can only be seen in the dark: they form a decimal clock with a total height of 160 meters. Travelling to the “Rheinturm” from the “Am Seestern” stop at H2 Hotel Düsseldorf Seestern takes 12 minutes by bus.
South of the “Rheinturm” is the “MedienHafen”. Today, impressive, modern building complexes are located in the former harbour area. Many companies from the media industry and the fields of fashion, architecture, art and culture are based here. The charm of the “MedienHafen” is in the successful mixture of old harbour buildings such as the quay walls, staircases and track systems along with modern buildings made of a lot of glass and steel.
For example, the Gehry buildings with their tilting walls and sloping towers have become a landmark of the city. In the evening life pulsates in the trendy bars, clubs and discos. Travelling here from the H2 Hotel Düsseldorf Seestern takes around 15 minutes by car.
There are several castles worth seeing in and around Düsseldorf, among them the most famous is Schloss Benrath. It was built in the 18th century as a magnificent pleasure palace for Elector Carl Theodor of the Palatinate and is a popular destination with its extensive gardens and parks.
