I've been to Dusseldorf many times and drank all of the alts there. This one is very tasty and I think a great example.
On my last trip there I made friends with one of the brewers at Im Fuchschen, and he took me on an extended tour / drinking part of the basement brewery. I came home with yeast, with which I made this beer. I think any malt-forward yeast would work (i.e., english yeasts).
Here's some pics and video from my last trip there: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f14/dusseldorf-altbier-brewery-visit-fuchschen-pics-youtube-282538/
