Decent Brauhaus in the Altstadt. The beer is excellent. Food tastes very good and the prices are ok. Staff is really attentive. I love to go there.

Just across the street from Zum Schlussel. Same kind of place, smaller terrasse but nice interior, the beer here is better IMO, the prices, service and food are pretty much the same. Check it out when in Düsseldorf.

Much cosier than Zum Schlüssel across the street. Dim lighting, dark wood. Were also pushed into the "standing table" section, but at least there are some benches on the walls and a few stools. Service was friendlier, we even persuaded a waiter to bring us a meat ball, when our "regular" waiter was nowhere to be found. (Apparently you only get one waiter and no one else is then allowed to help you.) The menu listed the regular Alt and the 1838. At least there was choice! The meat ball was pretty good value btw...

Nice alt beer & dishes. There are no much free places in weekend.

Another Schumacher location in the ground floor of a hotel. A standard large beer hall that was quiet when I visited early in the day. Only that alt available when I visited and did not try the food on my visit. Service was quick and attentive. Prices were in line with what we saw around town.

Visited September 2012.
This is on a very busy street jam packed with people. It’s next to an open lot from which you can see a church, and it’s diagonally across the street from Zum Schlüssel. Inside was well lit and the service was a bit overloaded but friendly. They sell souvenirs and I told myself that I’d only buy one alt glass (as well as one kolsch glass when in Koln). Since they had a pack of two I got that and I’m pretty sure that the other one was given to chinoskillzian. Fun place but all of the Altstadt is fun.

Was very happy to try the 1838 here. Lovely altstadt pub, only a couple beers, as you expect.

Nice little bar with a very warm and open interior. Staff was very friendly and fast and the bar is great located in the Altstadt. Prices are average for the Altstadt. Would always go there for a fast stopp again.

Right up the street from Schlussel. Service was not as quick as the other places in town. Value about the same but the beer wasn’t as good as the other place. Might as well check it out though.

If you want to drink the excellent Schumacher Alt I would advise you to go to the brew tap instead. I found this venue a bit of a tourist trap more interested in serving food (which was good I admit). But this place lacks character. I prefer the tap or the one across the road with a large key!
