Travel to Düsseldorf Hbf train station from Düsseldorf city centre

At first glance, Düsseldorf is modern, businesslike, and fancy, being one of Germany's wealthiest cities. It's considered a hotspot for fashion, and is home to one of the country's most expensive shopping streets: the Königsallee. The city is also a hub for modern art, featuring a famed arts academy, several impressive art museums, and even more art galleries. But there's another side to the city as well: situated along the Rhine river, the Altstadt (or Old Town) is home to hundreds of bars, clubs, and breweries, all packed into one compact historical quarter. This is where the button-ups come off and locals let their hair down. Düsseldorf is extremely easy to navigate by public transport - in fact, getting around in the city centre is probably faster by public transport than by car. The city's public transport system consists of an extensive U-Bahn or subway network, several trams and buses, and S-Bahns or suburban trains. Train station Düsseldorf Hbf is the city's main railway station, and the central hub connecting all means of transportation.
