The Fritz Düsseldorf offers modern design-led accommodation within easy reach of Düsseldorf’s major attractions, “boundary-pushing architecture, zinging nightlife” and “art scene to rival many higher-profile cities” (Lonely Planet). Set on a quiet side street, the hotel occupies a townhouse-style property with a smart grey façade, a few minutes’ walk from the southern edge of landmark Königsallee, known for its high-end shops, boutiques and tree-lined canal.
K21 modern art museum is a 5-minute walk away, and KIT, where young artists display work in “a spectacularly adapted tunnel” (Lonely Planet) is 10 minutes’ walk away. Both the Altstadt, Düsseldorf’s lively old town, and the Rheinturm, a revolving observation deck, are about a 20-minute walk from the hotel. The 18th-century Schloss Benrath, “one of the most beautiful and well-preserved castles in the region” (Time Out), takes about 20 minutes to reach by car.
The Fritz’s interiors have a chic, eclectic feel, with funky lighting, parquet floors and retro-inspired furnishings such as bold, patterned armchairs. There’s a sleek bar topped in black and grey marble, plus a Michelin-starred restaurant, which serves international cuisine and includes a glass feature wall hung with colourful flowers.
The hotel’s 31 guestrooms are decorated in soft neutral tones offset by gold and black accents, and feature wood furnishings. All the rooms include free Wi-Fi, while higher-tariff rooms have bigger beds and/or balconies.
