Dusseldorf: catwalk of Germany.

Dusseldorf becomes the focus of the fashion world when the city reveals the latest in designer fashion and high-street trends. 'The Gallery Dusseldorf' emerged from Igedo (the world's biggest fashion show in its day) and is now a biannual event that attracts international fashion designers and buyers in their droves to the Rhine city.

What to see in Dusseldorf?

The Konigsallee is an urban boulevard in Dusseldorf, state capital of North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. The Konigsallee is noted for both the landscaped canal that runs along its center, as well as for the fashion showrooms and luxury retail stores located along its sides.

Schloss Benrath
