Historic gasthaus in Altstadt Düsseldorf. This place is essentially the Mecca of Altbier and they definitely live up to their reputation. As far as ambiance, it seems like just about every other rhinelandish pub with the exception of its aura from its significance. The Altbier is, of course, great - especially during their Sticke days. Service is awesome - traditional Rhinelander. This is a must visit for anyone coming through or near Düsseldorf.

Well known, yet not overly touristy brewpub in the Altstadt. At the time of visit the beer selection consisted of a Altbier and a Weizenbier, so one could call it rather limited. However, the Altbier itself is rather good. I did not order anything to eat, but the prices seemed acceptable. If you have time to visit just few of the brewpubs in Düsseldorf, pick this to your list.

Charming place with multiple rooms - smoking area, varios dining rooms, some smaller alcoves and corridors.
Rustic interior, lots of details to admire. And great beer.

Very cult and interesting place to go for a beer. The inside part is the best part of all. Nice alt beer, but more bitter than the usual altbiers. Small selection... but its a brewpub ... Its unfair to put a score in this subject.

For me the most sympathic place in the Altstadt of Düsseldorf, naturally easy to find.
At my visit in March it wasn’t crowdy, so I enjoyed my Uerige Alt and Weizen well on tap, but didn’t eat there.
Prices, service and crew was correct for such a frequented place like this.
Ambience and atmosphere was nice, liked it overall.
The beer-counting was affine to my experiences in Prague a couple of years ago.

When you are standing outside the bar the kobes will bring you one pint of alt, without asking of course, its part of the cult. Zum Uerige alt is very bitter. You will find many brewpubs that make alt bier in the area, just few minutes walk from Zum Uerige.

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.
