“Transformation of old to new lent constant strength to homeland true.”
Food & Drinks
Situated in the Old Town, the restaurant/brewery “Zum Schiffchen“ is the oldest restaurant of Düsseldorf. People from Düsseldorf and also those just visiting say it is a typical original Düsseldorf restaurant.
Atmosphere, furniture and food are guarantors of originality as much as the blue-aproned “Köbesse“ – the waiters – who “celebrate“ their service with humour and the typical Düsseldorf dialect – to the great joy of guests and travel groups from other countries.
The restaurant was first mentioned in the chronicles of 1628, and we are proud of having had even Napoleon among our patrons. Nowadays, it is not so much the refined French habits and cuisine but a certain rusticity and joy that make this restaurant so popular.
The historic brewery “zum Schiffchen” offers a suitable atmosphere for neighbors and guests from all over the world in its traditional rooms and comfortable surrounding.
