K Messe is the world’s number one trade fair for plastics and rubber, including raw materials, semi-finished products, technical parts, reinforced plastics, machinery and equipment and a range of relating services in Dusseldorf.
If you’re exhibiting or attending, then it’s important to get some downtime and sample what the city has to offer. Here, we have the top four things to see and do when visiting or exhibiting at K Messe for 2022.
Old Town, The Altstadt
Dusseldorf’s old town, The Altstadt is the perfect location to stroll around and shop, visit a restaurant for an evening meal, one of the many popular bars or quaint breweries pouring the city’s traditional Altbier. The Rhine is also lined with relaxed cafes to sit and enjoy the town with over 800 years of history and architecture.
The World’s Longest Bar
More than 300 pubs and restaurants connect within half a square mile to create ‘the world’s longest bar’ within the old town, serving their morish altbier, which is an old recipe and regarded as the local brew.
Dusseldorf is not only the host of some fantastic and world-renowned exhibitions, but also a great place to network and entertain, bursting with history which can be seen around every corner.
In close vicinity to The Altstadt and the main station you can find ‘Little Tokyo’, with an array of incredible, authentic Japanese restaurants, including famous Ramen shops such as Takumi and Naniwa, which are a credit to the Japanese community who live in the city.
You can sample an array of Japanese cuisine, from Soba buck wheat noodles, Japanese-style bread, Matcha Lattes, Onigiri rice balls and sushi. You really will be spoilt for choice.
