    Favorite thing: Take a walk along the Rhein if the wheather is nice and sunny, it is a great way to feel this city. If you get tired find a bench and watch passing pedestrians, the passig by boats and ships. A really niceplace for a conversation orfor some thinking.

    Rhine quays

    Favorite thing: Walking along the Rhine must be one of my favourite things in the city, and so much more rewarding than in touristy Cologne. From Media Hafen with its modern architecture, past the Rhineturm and the North-Rhine Westphalian parliament to the Old Town skyline. All the time you are being past by river barges and realise how much life goes on in this part of Europe. Don't forget to stop and look back sometimes too as you will be rewarded with great photo opportunities, which also goes for night time shots. I can imagine this place being very lively in summer.

    The Rhine is Fine

    bridge over travelled waters?

    Favorite thing: The Rhine was full to the brim when I visited in May 2006. It's interesting to watch the barges: going upstream they battle against the current, going downstream they have an easy ride.

    The Rheinkniebrücke shown here is one of the two major river crossings in the city.

    Germans love dogs

    Go on doggy, catch the ball...

    Fondest memory: Yep they do, they take care of their dogs. If you see a dog and find it's owner they will most likely have a tennis ball with them, for the dog to play with. Sometimes however the tennis ball ends up in places you don't want. This same thing happened over here. It is a watefall sort of thing right next to the Rhine. The tennis ended up in it and so did the dog. However the dog couldn't get it out of the water and a whole crowd gathered to take a look at the dog.

    View from Kniebrücke

    Favorite thing: I love skyscrapers, so the skyline of Düsseldorf isn't that great for me, compared to Frankfurt for example, or other huge cities.

    However, whenever coming home from a western direction, crossing the bridge is a pleasant feeling. Seeing all the landmarks, seeing people enjoying themselves, seeing the ships (for cargo as well as people)...

    I also love crossing the river by bike and stopping in the middle of the bridge just to watch for a couple of minutes.

    Düsseldorf wouldn't be the same without its river and its bridges.

    Sunset Over The Rhine

    Favorite thing: Sunset over the Rhine can be quite beautiful. The lights of the TV tower and the twin bridges illuminate the sky, and if the clouds are just right the suns rays burst through in a final "goodbye" to the day. And to us :-((

    Favorite thing: Watch the Rhine flow by. It's so tranquil and yet so forceful as it washes from the Swiss Alps to the North Sea. Of course, for most of the cities in the Rhineland, the Rhine was their life-blood, bringing fertile soil and commerce. In this day of industrialization and air routes, the Rhine is still the focal point of social life.

    Walk along the Rhine

    Favorite thing: If you don't do anything else (which we didn't) walk along the river side and visit the Alstad (old town). (Which we did!)
