King's Avenue in autumn
In autumn you can also experience a lot in Düsseldorf. First of all, there are many interesting events taking place that might interest you. For one, at the end of September is the Lichterfest (light festival), which takes place in the Ständehauspark and, apart from lights, also includes lots of music. At the end of October, the circus "Cirque du Soleil" impresses many spectators with its tricks on the Hohenzollernallee. If you are a fan of music, however, you should like the music festival best, which takes place in mid-September. If a more relaxed rainy autumn day suits you more, then spend a day in the Gartenhallenbad Unterrath and enjoy the warmth in an indoor swimming pool. The indoor pool is only 15 minutes by car from the city center and can therefore be reached quite easily by hired car.
