When the FIFA World Cup comes around every 4 years, we want to make sure that you’re properly equipped with what you need to make the most out of the festivities! Düsseldorf has proved to be a leader in the public viewing world of the FIFA World Cup games (along with Berlin of course). You could watch it on a boat, you could watch it in a backyard beer garden or even in the main square out in front of the town hall! Basically, all other sports in Düsseldorf take the side burner while the world cup is on.
Year after year, the FIFA World Cup public viewing opportunities in Düsseldorf get 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!
Address: Kasematten, 40213
On the beautiful sunny days in Düsseldorf during the World Cup, the Kasematten along the Rhine River is packed with football fans from all over the world. Most of the restaurants along the Kasematten will be playing the game on a couple of different flat screens, and there is a good chance that the Weisse Flotte Düsseldorf boat will again, pull up their huge flat-screen TV for people to watch from the promenade.
If you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind experience, the Kasematten is the place to be!
Address: Marktpl. 6, 40213
Right in the center of the Marktplatz, outside of Die Kämmerei and the town hall, you will often find 5 huge screen TVs to watch all the FIFA World Cup games live. Rain or shine, Die Kämmerei is prepared to offer up cold drinks and an incredible atmosphere. This is definitely a unique spot to watch the game, so you won’t be the only one fighting for a good spot. Make sure you arrive 2 hours before kick-off to get a good spot!
Address: Ratinger Str. 25, 40213
During the 2018 World Cup, the Schlösser Quartier Bohème and Henkel-Saal transformed into the “SQB WM-Quartier 2018”. They played all the World Cup games out on the terrace, so regardless of who you were cheering for, you could always call the SQB home. There were 4 huge projection screens and 5 monitors all in high definition, and on the days that team Germany was playing, they hosted huge parties boasting some of the best DJ’s in the city. Let’s hope they continue to follow trend every time FIFA World Cup rolls around, am I right?!
