Exciting, central, lively

Oberbilk is one of Düsseldorf’s most vibrant and lively districts and is becoming more and more popular with students, due to its proximity to Heinrich Heine University. It extends from the main railway station to the Volksgarten and boasts international restaurants, cafés and shops. The neighbourhood is a former working-class district of Bilk, now offering a great cultural and culinary diversity. Variety is the order of the day: from historical sights to cafés, flower shops and bakeries, to the Oberbilker Markt south of the station, it provides everything you could wish for in a dynamic city centre.

Savvy tips

Ellerstraße Community Garden

The “Oberbilker Stadtgärtner” (Oberbilk City Gardeners) association was originally only intended to beautify a gap in the building – and now offers passionate amateur gardeners a small urban oasis to escape to.


Regardless of how often you go to DreiRaum, you always discover something new: the charming café places a lot of emphasis on regionality, which is why the menu changes constantly. The original ceiling design, reminiscent of a small cave, ensures a very special cosy atmosphere.


Düsseldorf’s “green oasis” attracts a lot of visitors. The many meadows and green spaces there are where city dwellers like to spend their leisure time: jogging, going for a stroll or simply meeting up and lingering.

Uerige am Markt

Altbier is simply an integral part of Düsseldorf! The tangy Uerige is one of the most popular and best-known Altbiers in the city. And where better to try it than at Oberbilker Markt?


Live music, open mic nights, pizza at the bar: the Kassette Bar has meanwhile become an authentic institution in Oberbilk. The place where people meet for table tennis, to watch football together or just to have a drink in a cosy atmosphere.


This charming shop not only offers high-quality, fresh fish and seafood to go, but delicious tapas and pasta too.
