Düsseldorf is very much a commercial centre, and it has become well known for the many trade shows that have been held there. It's also the place to go for a fair of a different kind, one of the largest street carnivals in Germany, the Rhenish Carnival. This has long been the best opportunity to partake of one of the city's most famous products: its beer. Düsseldorf is the home of 'altbier', which became a significant influence on modern beer production as beer-drinkers began to seek more varied brews. Thirst quenched, there are dozens of theatres in the city for you to investigate when you buy or sell Düsseldorf event tickets on StubHub.
Düsseldorf's amazing musical history
Some may be surprised to discover that Düsseldorf has an alternative music pedigree to rival Liverpool and Manchester. It has spawned a who's who the most seminal electronic artists in the world. This includes the legendary Kraftwerk, whose offshoot, Neu! then made the city a cradle of Krautrock as well. And that's just the start of the musical legacy you can explore here. Germany's most famous punk band, Die Toten Hosen hail from here too, as does the beloved cult crooner, Heino. The locals also love jazz, so catch the Düsseldorf Jazz Rally, if that's more your scene. Winter has always seen the spotlight turned on the city's ice hockey team, Düsseldorfer EG, so if you're looking for some sporting action, that's the way to go when booking your Düsseldorf event tickets.
