How to get to the city
direct to Dusseldorf International Airport www.duesseldorf-international.de.
via Cologne or via Weeze (budget airlines use this airport, it's approx. 80 km from Dusseldorf)
Brussels, Amsterdam and Frankfurt are also good, connections by air or train.
from all over Europe to main train station Dusseldorf Hauptbahnhof
Venue: LTU Arena
(formerly known as Rheinstadion, LTU arena is totally new, built on the site of the old stadium)
By public transportation:
from Dusseldorf train station or Altstadt (the tram stop is called "Heinrich-Heine-Allee", it is an underground stop "U-Bahn") tram U78 to "Arena/Messe-Nord". The subway in Dusseldorf is actually a tram travelling underground in some places. During events, trams leave about every 2 - 5 minutes. It takes about 15 - 20 minutes by tram from the train station to LTU arena.
Sometimes concert/event tickets include tram/bus fare (I'm not sure about the Stones tickets, will check).
via Autobahn (highway):
from the North via A52 and A3
from the West via A44 and A57
from the South via A57 and A59
Right next to the LTU arena there are the exhibition/trade fairgrounds "Internationale Messe Dusseldorf", both are well-signaled throughout the city.
For your navigation system use "Flughafen Dusseldorf" as LTU arena is still new.
LTU arena is located 3 km from Dusseldorf International airport. A taxi from the airport takes about 10-15 minutes to LTU-arena and costs approx. 10 Euro.
From Autobahn A44 take exit AS 29 Messe-Nord/Stadion or Messe-Nord/Arena
direct to LTU arena.
follow signs to parking area P1, parking during concert events usually costs about 5 Euro. There are 22,000 parking places available.

Das Uerige - http://www.uerige.de (a personal favourite)
Brauerei im Fuechschen - http://www.fuechschen.de/ (a personal favourite)
Brauerei Schumacher - http://www.schumacher-alt.de/ (in German)

Meeting place for fans
Altstadt (old town)
Bolkerstr. 33, Düsseldorf
If you like beer, you're in the right place.
There are several nice pubs and brewery-owned pubs, "Altbier" is typical, it's a top-fermented dark beer - but don't ever ask for a "Koelsch" (beer from Cologne) in Dusseldorf, even if some pubs sell it! There's a friendly rivalry between the two cities Cologne and Dusseldorf.
If you like typical / traditional German food, the breweries serve simple meals which are quite good.

Koenigsallee is the street with all the expensive luxury shops, the Altstadt and other areas have small shops and boutiques
