Ratingen is a medieval town next to Düsseldorf airport, Cologne, Xanten(ancient roman city). Düsseldorf is very busy and you have good possibilities for the evening, so as there are many pubs and discos. Düsseldorf “die längste Theke der Welt “(I try to translate it: the longest bar of the world). In 1 hour flight you can reach Munich, Berlin, Amsterdam and London. Ratingen itself has a castle and a medieval manufactory, and nearby you can find the first human steps on the world, “the Neanderthaler”. Nearby is the “Ruhrgebiet” with many possibilities for sightseeing. A beautiful trip on the Rhine is possible as well as a 2 hours trip by car to Amsterdam and North Sea and a three hours car trip to Brussels. From Ratingen you can also book 1 or 2 days in Paris (per bus or 1 hour flight).
