To celebrate this new service, passengers and flight crew were welcomed with gingerbread men, a well-known German delicacy, often seen in German Christmas markets.
Dusseldorf is one of Germany’s most diverse cities, a bustling metropolis in the heart of Europe. Divided by the Rhine River, its Old Town on the east bank and the modern commercial areas on the west, Düsseldorf is the fashion capital of Germany. It also boasts an array of German Christmas Markets to visit, perfect for anyone looking for an authentic festive city break this winter.
