Off the Beaten Path and Insider Tips

Login to edit
Though Krefeld is quite nice, it's more an industrial town than a big tourist attraction. So there's not so much to see except for what I wrote in the other columns.
But for its quite central location, you could stay there and explore the Ruhr Area, Köln/Cologne (40min. by train), Bonn (90min. by train), Düsseldorf (25min. by train), the lower rhine area (bicycle tours are said to be beautiful). You can also go to the Netherlands quite easy. Don't know about the trains, but the border's ... more

Suggested Itineraries and Walking Tours

Transport

Login to edit
From Düsseldorf, Cologne and Duisburg there are trains to Krefeld HBf every hour.
Krefeld itself has a profound public transportation system.

Accommodation

Login to edit
There are hotels in the city centre, like the Etap Hotel at central station. I don't think Krefeld has a youth hostel.

Food and Drinks and Local Specialties

Login to edit
As most german towns, Krefeld has a local brewery. It's called Gleumes and the brewery has a bar in the northern city centre. Rather expensive, but very tasty.
There's a big italian community in Krefeld, so you can find Pizzerias everywhere throughout the city.

Money and Costs

Login to edit
Living costs are quite high in Germany. For your travel provisions try to find a Lidl, Aldi or Plus supermarket rather than a small liquor store or the expensive supermarkets like Kaiser's or Rewe.

Post and Communications and Internet

Login to edit
There are quite a few Internetcafes and Callshops in the inner city. Usually the callshops are close to the internetcafes, so just ask a pedestrian to tell you where the nearest one is. And of course don't ask anyone above 50, because they are unlikely to know about it.

Nightlife and Entertainment

Login to edit
Directly located at the central station there's the club "Meilenstein" , they play house, techno & r'n'b. Quite good, though quite expensive as well.

At Dießemer Straße you find two clubs, "Schlachthof" and "Kulturfabrik" which have moderate prices and moderate alternative pop/rock music, depending on the day you get there. At Kulturfabrik (KuFa) you can also see gigs by bands of many genres.

In the city centre you can find Jazzkeller , p ... more

Hospitals and Doctors

Login to edit
It won't be a problem to get medical care in Krefeld. You'll find doctors esp. in the centre. Quite a good hospital is the Maria-Hilf-Krankenhaus located in the southern central city. It's said to be better than the others.

Visa and Documents and Embassies

Login to edit
We don't have any embassies in Krefeld and you don't need any special visa. I'm not sure if you need a visa for the Netherlands which are close by, but there are no custom guards at the border.

Shopping

there is a long shopping area in downtown Krefeld. If you arrive by train you just go through the hansa-zentrum and you are right on it. It is not nearly as spectacular as Cologne or Düsseldorf but its "ours" if you know what I mean.
