STAY in Dusseldorf: Innside Derendorf
The parquet is dark, and the reception counter incredibly long. That's how the Dusseldorf Hotel Innside Derendorf welcomes its guests. The even cut of the counter, its glossy surfaces, the indirect LED spotlights - and the huge bowls with orchids at the reception - make it clear: this hotel addresses contemporaries with a modern taste. In the 160 rooms the designer look continues: ceiling-high windows match the creme-coloured fabrics, leather and head-high columns. The rooms are light and bright, air-conditioned and provide spacious king-size beds. The bathrooms which are separated by frozen glass leave a futuristic impression, while the rain shower provides experiences as archaic as standing under a clattering summer rain in the wild. You can relax at the Finnish sauna or the flavoured steam baths in the WellFit & FunArea, afterwards you head to the stream showers and gym machines. All of them equally chic.
SEE in Dusseldorf: Schloss Benrathred|guide Dusseldorf
You could easily get the impression that everything worth seeing in Düsseldorf is located along the Rhein river. And you wouldn't be incorrect in thinking so. Even prince Carl theodor from Pfalz-Sulzbach fell hopelessly in love with beautiful Düsseldorf. As a result, he built a castle just for parties and hanging out. The extensive Benrath castle gardens were once simply a place to stroll around in and it remains so today. These days however, you will even find concerts taking place inside the garden walls. But the castle Benrath, built in 1773, has been exceptionally well maintained and is alone worth seeing. Unfortunately, the prince's impressive collection of furniture and art objects from his time have either been destroyed or never to be found again. Therefore, the castle has been tastefully decorated with modern art pieces, to give the visitor an impression of how the magnificent castle once was. The highlight of the castle is without doubt the large ballroom and its impressive dome.
