Düsseldorf is a city in western Germany known for its fashion industry and art scene. It's divided by the Rhine River, with its Altstadt (Old Town) on the east bank and modern commercial areas to the west. In the Altstadt, St. Lambertus Church and Schlossturm (Castle Tower) both date to the 13th century. Streets such as Königsallee and Schadowstrasse are lined with boutique shops.
Barhopping is a popular pastime in the numerous pubs that pack the Altstadt. The Rhine embankment promenade, lined with cafes and pubs, connects the Altstadt to Media Harbour, home to a range of notable modern architecture. Kaiserswerth, a district in the north, offers historic homes and the ruins of Kaiserpfalz Palace, as well as cafes and beer gardens. The Museum Kunstpalast displays works of art from the Middle Ages to the present. Outside the city, Schloss Benrath is an 18th-century baroque palace.
