This is one of my favorite bars in northern Germany, along with some of the classic kolsch bars in Koln. Uerige has kobes with great personalities, walking around and hawking delicious snacks every 15-20 minutes or so. The alt is very similar to a British ESB and the hefeweizen is definitely more subtle than the Bavarian original, but still very drinkable. This place is definitely worth a visit during karneval season. I would have liked to have rated it higher, but I couldn’t due to the selection limited to their own beers.

Definitely my favourite place in Düsseldorf, just so inviting and cozy on a snowy winter’s day with its multiple rooms, wooden interior, bustling crowds and dim light, kind of like an Altbier version of the Schlenkerla Gaststätte in Bamberg. The beers (an Alt and a Weizen) were fantastic. Staff seemed quite stressed, but our server was never unfriendly, so no problems there. The only issue I have with this place (and Düsseldorf in general) is that it’s quite expensive.

The finest multi roomed beer tavern in the world IMO. I’m not marking it down on beer selection as you don’t have far to walk to hundreds of other pubs in Dusseldorf’s Altstadt area. The choice here is the freshest beer you’ll ever taste with no stale alternatives. Always busy and bustling, it’s fascinating to watch the staff frequently rolling fresh or emty casks of alt to and from the numerous serving points around this laberinth. Food is limited to simple snacks to soak up the delicious beer. A must do.

This place is huge. Unfortunately we arrived late and close to closing time. We had a few altes - the were good but we also agreed on that they wern´t as good as the ones at Schlüssel - they had a better crispyness anf freshness.
Still it was really good beer and pretty cheap.
The place was need and we were situated outside at benches. The beer were counted by lines on the coasters. The rooms inside look cosy and very traditional - would love to go there aggain some day.

Nice place with outside "tables" very regional but they take a while to serve you although the beers are fine.

Very nice place with lot of rooms, woody and deeply charming. Decent food but not more. Very crowded of course. Offered a beautiful Alt beer and a modest Weizen. A place you can’t forget.

Visited late December, 2008.
Crowded inside, part from the smokers lounge, so had our alt outside under the heaters. Fast service, did not eat. Did not check out toilets. Inside looked nice.
Second visit, March 2010.
Found some room inside, tried the Alt and the Weizen. Hard to refuse beers, they just put it down and put it on the tab even though you say no, a bit strange. Staff varied, some nice some really not very friendly. Crowded and popular place. The beers wasn’t as special as I remembered, actually not among the best of this trip. A bit small restrooms for this big of a place. Did not try eating.

Our first stop in Dusseldorf. I was thirsty, the kids were hungry. Very crowded, but I like that. Great looking place with all kinds of small rooms interconnected by corridors and a large heated terrace outside. First encounter with the waitor was horrible however and stayed that way. They have a very small menu with ok prices but compared to what you get very expensive. Small and horrible. They only serve 1 beer but a great one of course. Other beers can be bought (bottled) but not from the waitor. You have to got to the other side of the bar and order there. At the same waitor! What in f*cking hell is that for a policy??? Would I go again? No!

Stopped by twice in the same day in Sept. 2007. The afternoon visit was my best time in the city, with a few glasses of my favorite alt, a nice wurst salad, and a friendly older gentleman almost forcing me to use whatever German I knew to talk with him. A fascinating looking pub and great beer. Tried to go back there at night with my friends and we couldn’t get it. Visit in the off-hours! For me, the best place in the city.
