Those booking flights from London to Duesseldorf might not have bargains on their minds – this is one of Germany's wealthiest cities – but if you can save a few pounds in the air, you'll be able to spend more on the ground. And there's plenty to splash out on in Duesseldorf: fine dining that flips from French to Japanese between courses; boutiques delivering designer wonders and threads with flair; and bold artwork that jumbles and fuses the classic and the contemporary.
Timing makes all the difference for those seeking low costs on the plane out to Duesseldorf. Not that there's really a peak season for hopping over to North Rhine–Westphalia's capital – it's mainly business travellers making the trip and they fly all year round. The main time to avoid London to Duesseldorf flights is Christmas week. Another good way to save pounds is to time your trip to land on certain days – Fridays and Saturdays are cheaper, as are afternoon take-offs. And if you can hold on until four weeks before you want to fly, you may just snag a bargain airfare deal.
The cheapest airport to depart from for London to Duesseldorf routes is Stansted. Although situated some 30 miles north of central London, it's not too hard to reach. If you're being dropped off by car or parking and flying, just head up the M11 and get off at junction 8. Or you can catch a Greater Anglia train direct to Stansted, after having changed from the underground at London Liverpool Street or Tottenham Hale.
easyJet and Ryanair are the two main low-cost airlines offering cheap London Duesseldorf flights, with Germanwings also a big budget player. They don't all fly to Duesseldorf Airport though. Some go via Dortmund, others by Cologne-Bonn. The big carriers, like Lufthansa, British Airways and SWISS, do all come in via Duesseldorf International Airport (DUS). The flight time either way is less than an hour and a half, with you losing an hour due to time zone differences.
For those coming in to Duesseldorf International Airport, the quickest way into central Duesseldorf is with the fast, direct railway link, which takes just 12 minutes to cover the 10-mile journey. If it's Koeln Bonn Airport (CGN) you're landing at, allow for at least an hour for the 60-minute train ride on the S13 to Koeln Messe, changing to the S6 for Duesseldorf.
Big business has built bold and brash on the skyline of Duesseldorf, but this city does refined, too. Walk down the elegant Bilker-Strasse, and see faces lit up by the gilded glow of its antique and arts shops. The Carlstadt district firmly presents its baroque glories for you to see too, but you'll find darker architectural stories and forgotten nooks in the Altstadt (Old Town). Hard-edged German design flair is on exhibit in the NRW Forum, the city's design museum, while those euros won't burn a hole in your pocket for long on a retail expedition down the Ko (or Koenigsallee).
