City of Düsseldorf

City of Krefeld

„Krimvelde“ was first mentioned in a deed around 1005. From the middle of the 12th century on, Krefeld’s fate was determined by that of the counts of Moers. Owing to the special connections to the Emperor, in 1373 the Moerser Count received through a deed the right to raise Krefeld to city status.

The independent city of Krefeld lies on the left-side of the Lower Rhine with approx. 225,000 inhabitants and is north-west of Düsseldorf and Meerbusch, south-west of Duisburg in the district of Düsseldorf in North Rhine-Westphalia. Because of the silk production in the 18th and 19th centuries, it is also known as the „Velvet and Silk City“.

Sights

Visiting the Seidenweberhaus, the market square in Uerdingen as well as a stroll over the eastern wall Ostwall are interesting things to do in Krefeld.

Shopping

The pedestrian zones (Königstraße and Hochstraße) offers a series of economical shopping possibilities in the city centre. A visit to the market at the western wall Westwall on Tuesdays and Fridays is also worthwhile.
