Barbarossaplatz in Düsseldorf Oberkassel exudes pure cult charm. Around Barbarossaplatz you’ll find the finest Italian cuisine as well as small cafes like Momania or the cult Cafe Muggel, which even has its own movie theater. The Breton bistro Chez Lio is also located on a cozy corner of Barbarossaplatz. But a visit to Barbarossaplatz is not only worthwhile at lunchtime or in the evening: every Tuesday and Friday, the weekly market invites you to stroll and shop.
There’s something going on at the Böhler site! This is because trade fairs and events are held here at regular intervals and it has thus also established itself as a location for trends, fashion & lifestyle in Düsseldorf. Good to know: We work closely with some trade fairs & event organizers here and, as a trade fair hotel, can offer a familiar standard and attractive rates in the direct vicinity. So it’s always worth taking a look at the trade fair calendar of the Areal Böhler.
EKŌ House and Japan Quarter
For concentrated Japanese culture, you can travel to Japan, but for an intense breeze, the Düsseldorf district of Niederkassel is enough! In 1993, a Japanese cultural center was opened there: the EKŌ-Haus. The EKŌ-Haus includes a Buddhist temple, Japanese gardens, a house in traditional architectural style, exhibition rooms and so much more! It is not for nothing that Düsseldorf has been chosen as one of the largest Japanese-influenced cities in Europe as a cultural center.
To warm up, on the way from our hotel to the EKŌ-Haus is the Japanese supermarket Wayo, known and popular for its delicacies and sushi bistro. If you still haven’t had enough, you can make your way to Immermannstraße, near the main train station. This is where Düsseldorf’s Japanese quarter is located. The Japan Day also takes place annually in Düsseldorf. Here you can experience pure Japan vibes!
