It was christmas time, so where better to soak in the christmas markets than in Germany. This trip took me to the Dusseldorf, where I stayed in the elegant Briedenbacher Hof Hotel, which has a history that dates back 200 years.
It's situated perfectly on the doorstep of the most famous shopping street, the Konigsallee, where you will find all your designer friends from Tiffany & Co to Prada.
The hotel itself is steeped in old fashioned charm, with a fine dining restaurant called Brasserie 1806, a spa, pool and gym, and it also has its very own lounge just for guests where you can relax, have a coffee, have a meeting, or just put your feet up and rest after a long day of shopping.
Service is everything at this hotel, so whatever you need, just head to the lounge, because that's where you will find a personal assistant on call everyday.
Dusseldorf itself is an easy to get a round city, and Breidenbacher Hof is just a few minutes walk to the the old town, and the River Rhine.
