With over 600,000 inhabitants, the capital of North Rhine-Westphalia is the second largest city in the federal state of Germany. Düsseldorf is located in the west of Germany and is part of the Rhine-Ruhr metropolitan region as well as the Rhineland metropolitan region. Furthermore, the city lies at the core of the central European economic area (Blue Banana). But Düsseldorf is not only known for this, it is especially popular for its old town, the famous shopping street and the well-kept overall appearance. That is why we will explain to you in this blog all the reasons why you should take a private flight to Düsseldorf.
If you are not convinced yet, why to take a private jet, you can read our blog post, were we explain the general advantages of hiring a private jet.
When you visit Düsseldorf, a visit to the old town is definitely not to be missed. It is the historical, political and cultural centre of the city. There you will find, among other things, the city hall and the art academy. Since a large part of the old town is a pedestrian zone, you will find numerous shops and restaurants there. In addition, there are over 300 pubs, bars, discos, and restaurants on half a square kilometre, which is why this street has the reputation of being the “longest bar in the world”. If you want to escape the hustle and bustle for a bit, you can walk along the Rhine promenade.
For those interested in art and culture, Düsseldorf is the place to go. You can choose between architecture, ballet, theatre, music and much more. You will find them all around the town. Two examples for museums would be the Goethe Museum or the Heinrich Heine Institute. They are open Tuesday to Friday from 11 am to 5 pm and on Saturdays from 1 pm to 5 pm. But you can also watch different excellent plays all year round at the Düsseldorf Schauspielhaus, such as “Maria Stuart” or “Der Sandmann” by E.T.A. Hoffmann.
As a shopping lover who enjoys the large and expensive fashion shops, the Königsallee, also known as the “Kö” is the perfect address. Just under a kilometre long, the street runs from north to south and is one of Düsseldorf’s trademarks. Originally, the avenue was conceived as a residential street, but due to the economic boom it developed into one of the top addresses in Germany.
Private Jet Airport Düsseldorf
Düsseldorf Airport is about 15 minutes by car from the city centre. As one of the largest airports in Germany, it is always very busy in the terminal. Because check in & check out are very time consuming, it is recommended to book a private flight to save time. The advantages of a GAT are the quick and easy check-in and security check, comfortably equipped rooms and the fact, that you are at a different terminal than people flying with a commercial airline.
The GAT (General Aviation Terminal) is open every day from 5:30 to 23:00 and is located on the airport grounds – West, which is also about 15 minutes from the city centre. It is sufficient if you arrive at the airport 15 to 20 minutes before your departure time. Then you can quickly and easily go through check-in and security and be ready to fly.
Fly Aeolus flies its customers to their destination in Cirrus SR22 or Piper PA46 Meridian air taxis. It might be helpful to read through our blog explaining how much luggage space the Cirrus SR22 has to avoid weight issues.
