Ever wondered what the best gems of Derendorf, Dusseldorf are? Today we have Britta Beumers from Genussgier travel blog sharing her favorite places around the district (and a little bit beyond into the Altstadt since you’re so close anyway). If there is anything you’d like to add to the list (or you think needs to be changed), be sure to leave your comments in the comment box below!


Food in Derendorf

  • Malinas: If you’re looking for some of the best and most authentic pierogies in the city, you’ll have to head to Malinas.
  • Tao: A popular restaurant in Düsseldorf for delicious Dim Sum and Chinese food.
  • Spoerl Fabrik: Lovely restaurant at the old Spoerl factory which offers everything from breakfast to dinner. The owner was the father of the author Heinrich Spoerl who is famous in Germany for his book “Die Feuerzangenbowle” in which screen adaptions are still even more popular.
  • Gingerboy: A restaurant bar and lounge serving up great fresh foods inspired by the Chinese culture.


Sights in Derendorf

  • The new Fachhochschule: This summer the technical college move next to the station Derendorf S and will change the face and atmosphere of the district.
  • Platz der IdeenWhile this might not be a ‘sight’ in particular, it’s a great place to start your exploration around Derendorf. This location has a map of all parking spots, buses, hotels, places to eat, and ATMs you can find around the city.
  • AMD Akademie Mode & Design: If you’re into fashion and design, this is a neat school that has held some neat events in the past including a “fair fashion” event teaching people to swap clothing or buy good quality things.


Shops in Derendorf

  • Kaufland: One of the biggest in the city and the best place to get everything you need in one shop!
  • Underwater No.1If you’re a fan of diving, this place is quite a unique shop to have in the center of a town with nowhere to dive. Certainly worth a browse!
  • Grossmarkt: Grossmarkt is one of the cities largest and best flea markets! There are also a number of other amazing flea markets to check out as well!


Nature in Derendorf

  • Rheinpark Golzheim: Crowded in the summertime but as I told you several times Düsseldorfer love to be close to the Rhine. Therefore you find people sunbathing, playing soccer, doing BBQ, etc. here when the weather is nice.
  • Nordfriedhof: Sounds a little morbid but this huge cemetery in the North is a nice alternative for a walk as this area doesn’t offer that much green.
  • Kolpingplatz: Little square park in Pempelfort with playground, water playground, table tennis, and a lot of green. There’s also a market on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
  • Frankenplatz: While just a small little nature spot, it’s in the middle of the city and is a great place for children to play.
