Trying to find the name of a monument

by Mariajoy

Hiya,

I'm just trying to find the name of a pyramid shaped monument I saw in Duesseldorf on Platz d. Deutschen Einheit. There's a photo of it on my D'dorf page but can't add any further info until I know what it's called. If anyone knows, can they let me know? (There's another VTer looking for the same info so I'm not just asking for myself.)
Vielen Dank, Maria :))

Mack-Brunnen or Segel-Brunnen
http://www.heinz-mack.de/raum-plaetze.html

Mack after the artists. Segel (sails) after the form.

I found one source saying the work should remind to the trisection of Germany (as the work is from 1988 I would guess the 3 zones of later West Germany are meant with this).

Travel Tips for Düsseldorf

Fischmarkt

by IceBear7

On every second Sunday of a month, in summer, you should go to the Fish Market in the harbour area. You can have a late breakfast or second breakfast or lunch or afternoon snack - or all of these, because there are so many tasty things to eat. Fish sandwhiches and hot fish meals, pancakes, bread, fruit, cocktails.... and of course Altbier.
You can buy flowers and pasta and decorations and lots of other nice and useless things ;-)

Altstadt

by TinyTuck

Here you'll find all kinds of different clothing for people of all styles. There are some of the usual chains with usual clothes and also many little unique stores with exclusive clothes and second hand stuff. depends

THE Burger!

by IceBear7 about Space Burger

You won't need Burger Kind and McD ever again coz nobody offers that many burgers (about 40 different ones!) and nobody has burgers with such great taste!

They have fair prices, the restaurant has only 4 or 5 tables, everything quite basic, staff is very friendly.

UPDATE: due to popular demand they've recently opened a new branch of this unique burger place. it's located right in the old town, in Bolker Straße. Look is more fancy than the old one, you get cocktails as well, and the burgers taste them. Hmm, I think I still prefer the old one, its cooler and more of a "cult" ;-) El pollo diabolo menu- a hot, spicy chicken burger with chips and a coke!!!!!!

Rhine Promenade

by Leipzig

I guess it is the best place in stuffy summer months because of the permanent light breeze from the Rhine River. Here you have a wonderful view over the Rhine and its banks, cozy restaurants and great night spots.

St Lambertus

by antistar

The St Lambertus church with its 14th century brick architecture and grand, tall and twisting spire (reminscent of the Parish Church of Chesterfield in England) is a real icon for the city. The foundation of the church dates back to 1380, when the city of Düsseldorf was named the capital of the Duchy of Berg and a period of rapid development ensued. The tall spire dominated the city for a number of centuries, but now finds itself dwarfed by Düsseldorf's many skyscrapers. Despite its lack of physical stature it still stands out clearly from the opposite bank of the Rhein.
