Hostels in Dusseldorf
Dusseldorf, the capital city of north Rhine-Westphalia, is a city full of cultural and architectural sites, many of which are the settings for the city's July fair and celebration of the Rheinish Carnival. There are many hostels available in the city that has ranked first for quality of life among all German cities. Of the millions of tourists to visit each year,an estimated 4.5 million come during the July fun fair. The fair has a number of events, including marksmanship competitions, that revolve around its original purposes as a tribute to Apollinaris of Ravenna, the patron saint of Dusseldorf, and the anniversary of St. Lambertus church being sanctified as a basilica. The Rhenish Carnival lasts from November through February, though the celebrations become more intense with the New Year and approach of Ash Wednesday. Lodging in the city does tend to become more scarce during these major events, though a hostel or other accommodation can usually be found outside the city center. No matter the time of year, you'll find plenty to do and see, as well as have an easy time getting to the important locations from the hostels. Dusseldorf has extensive public transportation systems, with S-bahn and U-bahn serving the major arteries and bus lines running throughout the neighborhoods. Additionally, staying at a hostel near the city center will provide relaxing and safe walks to many sites through Rheinpark and Hofgarten.
