Düsseldorf Hop-On Hop-Off Bus Tour and Rhine River Sightseeing Cruise
From US$27.10
See Düsseldorf’s greatest hits by bus and boat on this hop-on, hop-off sightseeing tour. With your 48-hour ticket, design a custom itinerary at your own pace and taste. You’ll see main attractions like the St Lambertus Church and Königsallee shopping district, hopping off the bus anywhere along the 1.5-hour route. Transfer to a panoramic river boat through bustling Media Harbor (MedienHafen), passing Alstadt (Old Town) and the eye-catching Gehry Buildings.
What to Expect
With your 48-hour ticket (valid from first use), see the best of Düsseldorf by double-decker bus! Hop aboard the bus at any of the route’s eight stops (full itinerary listed below) and enjoy the flexibility of choosing your own schedule, pace and tour duration. Along the way, enjoy fascinating commentary and snippets of local history. (Note: Live tour in German; audio tour available in 10 languages) 

Once onboard, grab a comfortable seat in either the indoor or open-air seating section and take in the sights along the full route (approximately 1.5 hours long). Sit through the entire loop, or hop off at any stop to check out the landmarks – another bus will be along in approximately 30 minutes. 

Visit the trendy Königsallee shopping districts, and Düsseldorf’s delightful Alstadt (Old Town) to see town hall and St Lambertus church. Creative types will love art-gazing at the regional museum Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen and admiring the modern buildings that speckle the city. Between stops, stroll along the Rhine embankment and through bustling neighborhoods, stopping for refreshment at one of Düsseldorf's many vibrant bars.

At the Rhine river stop, board a sightseeing boat and relax for the 1-hour float past Alstadt and Media Harbor, ornamented by the futurist architecture of Frank Gehry. (Note: Cruises depart every 90 minutes during the morning and afternoon.) After your cruise, hop back on the bus, or stick around and explore the harbor's hip eateries and bars.

Disembark at any stop along the route to end your tour. Easy!
