Otherwise "Cityhall"

Interesting architecture and the fact that it is called the "Rathaus" which is quite amusing - as it is the government central office or City Hall. Very interesting place.

Not sure if you can go inside. Still pretty nice building. The marktplatz is also pretty awesome as well. Quite close to the entertainment quarter and found myself wandering through here a couple of times.

Located in Dusseldorf's Old Town this picturesque building with many architectural details. It architectural style reminded me a little bit of buildings I've seen in Denmark. A statue called the Rider sits in front of the building. Worth a look if you're in the area.

We weren't so long to see it. Those who interest at architecture perhaps will take much time to stop and see the details ...

This is the new town hall. It was built between 1954 and 1957 on the remains of the Roman Practorium which is the seat of the imperial governor. Opposite is the old town hall rebuilt in 1964.

This has one of best and most bustling Christmas market within Dusseldorf and perhaps throughout Germany too. Beautifully decorated and with lots of variety of gluhwine and warm eats during the festive season.
