This is a great place to eat. It's in the old town area, lots of people watching with outside seating. There is inside seating but be careful going to the bathroom, the floor is slanted and probably has been for years, they just mark with yellow tape...lol. The food is outstanding. The German sausage plate is great, their potatoes just delicious. The beer flows freely and they take care of you here. I just loved the atmosphere and the portions are nice size. Don't pass this one up, it's been around for over 400 years. Famous people have been here to eat and I'll let you discover who. Can't go wrong here, plan to take your time..

I had the Sauerbraten and it was absolutely delicious. Also, the atmosphere was great.
All in all, highly recommended!

On a recent visit to Dusseldorf, my family and I had dinner at Zum Schiffchen and it was wonderful. At the table, we had a bread and cheese plate, Weiner schnitzel, oxtail stew and sausage platter, and for dessert we had Apple strudel. Dinner was delicious and the service was excellent. Also, the restaurant was easy to locate but I would highly recommend walking or taking a taxi to it as parking would be a challenge.

Always eat here when in Dusseldorf. Most convenient as its in the railway station complex. Good plain reasonably priced food, even do an "English breakfast" if you want one. Not only is food excellent but Schneide Weisse wheat beer is in my opinion, the best. Staff very friendly, got quiet close to them. Can't wait until next trip also often forgotten good access for wheelchair and pushchair users as all on one level
