Set along the beautiful Rhine River at Germany's far western edge, Dusseldorf is an exciting, elegant, and easily reached hip metropolis that's as proud of its long local traditions as it is its cutting-edge modernism. Thanks to its very close proximity less than 30 miles to larger Cologne, Dusseldorf shares a long rivalry that's at least usually friendly with "that other city" just to the south. Nearly twice as big, Cologne commands a lot of attention, and undeniably has the larger gay scene.
