Welcome to the wonderful world of The Duchy

Düsseldorf's Fine European Brasserie and Bar with a hint of heritage

With a distinctive taste cultivated from a true passion for the finest things Europe has to offer, the culinary team of Executive Chef Philipp Ferber serves a refined brasserie-style cuisine with local reference. Whether guests prefer to enjoy a relaxed dining experience or strive for a light snack at the Raw Bar, The Duchy caters to every culinary desire.


Who is


In 1805, Napoleon Bonaparte founded the Grand Duchy
of Berg with
Düsseldorf as capital of this territory.
It also established the era in which the Breidenbacher Hof was opened for the first time.

"The Duchy" is also the nickname for our female figure, who in the spirit of her name is a free thinker
and an icon of cool independence. Her distinctive style is cultivated from stealthy observation of the finest things the world has to offer. Hers is a global, vivacious elegance, founded on wit, wisdom and whimsy.

Located in the heart of Düsseldorf's vibrant downtown, the 5-star hotel is well-placed to enjoy the city’s cultural sights, before returning to an evening of signature dishes at The Duchy.
