The 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia is fast approaching and we want to make sure that you’re properly equipped with what you need to make the most out of this year’s festivities! Back in 2014, Düsseldorf proved to be a leader in the public viewing of the FIFA World Cup games. You could watch it on a boat, you could watch it in a backyard beer garden or even in the main square out front of the town hall!
And this year, the 21st FIFA World Cup public viewing opportunities in Düsseldorf will be even better! So, regardless of who you’re cheering for, make sure you celebrate the best you can.
Here is a list of some of the best public viewing spots in Düsseldorf for 2018.
Address: Kasematten, 40213
