Steeped in tradition, Zum Schiffchen is one of the oldest restaurants in Düsseldorf, with its earliest documentation being traced back to 1628. Operated by Rolf Klostermeier, Schiffchen continues to cater to generations of the city's locals and social luminaries. The cuisine is authentically Rhineland style; specialties include their namesake soup and regional draft brews. Pick a table at the lovely beer garden or soak in the rusticity amidst antiquity and modern art deco within. The inn evidently retains its old-world charm and nurtures its rich heritage. The “Köbesse” or “waiters” are a hospitable bunch with their German accents and original blue attire.
