Whether you’re standing behind a booth all day or navigating numerous crowded halls, trade fair days can take a lot out of you. Thankfully, Düsseldorf, Germany, home to international drinks trade show ProWein, is equipped to accommodate hordes of hungry and thirsty visitors from around the globe.

ProWein, the World's Biggest Drinks Trade Show, Returns to Düsseldorf

Where to Eat

For a quick bite, head to one of these central spots, open every day: Brauerei im Füchschen, Brauerei Kürzer and Brauerei zum Schlüssel. All serve warm food until 10:30 or 11 pm.

If you want a quiet, refined dinner, try Zum Stappen, a well-established restaurant that serves classic German dishes. The Wiener schnitzel is particularly popular. It’s open Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.

There’s also The Grill, an upscale steak house specializing in beef from Nebraska, Argentina and Australia. Or, if a relaxed, all-day bistro-café is your thing and you enjoy simple pasta, salad or breakfast, Tante Wilma will look after you.

Düsseldorf is home to Germany’s largest Japanese community, and there are a number of options for Japanese-German fare. Qomo, located in a tower on the Rhine, offers upscale Japanese fusion with a view. It also has a classy bar.

Naniwa is an affordable and popular ramen joint that also offers takeout. Upscale sushi chain Okinii has two branches in Düsseldorf and is popular for izakaya-style meals. Finally, soba addicts can head to the simple comfort of Soba-An.

What (Else) to Drink

If you’ve had enough wine after a day at ProWein, Düsseldorf offers its very own style of beer. Altbier is a top-fermented, dark brown ale. There are several breweries in the historic Altstadt, or old town, that also serve hearty German fare perfect for a cold March night.

Should you still thirst for wine after a day of tasting, visit the Concept Riesling wine shop on Carlsplatz, which is specializes in young German winemaking talent and the country’s cult Rieslings.
