Beat of….Dusseldorf

Dusseldorf is often overlooked in favor of its more popular sister Cologne, but this elegant, modern city on the eastern bank of the Rhine River has risen steadily to defy its origins as the dorf (village) at the mouth of the river Dussel, a tributary of the Rhine.

Hotel Review: The Breidenbacher Hof Hotel, Dusseldorf

The first thing I noticed upon entering the hotel’s lounge from Koenigsallee is how quickly the cacophony from what is essentially the Madison Avenue of this fashion capital is replaced with tranquility and impeccable refinement. Attentive and proffessional staff, who call you three days before your scheduled arrival to discuss your needs and requirements check you in with typical German efficiency before showing you to your room.
