    Rhein Tower

    by SMILLA76 Written Nov 19, 2005

    The big tower is telling the time. I must admit I didn't quite get the explanation about how the time should be read, but the main guidelines are: the first vertical row of lights (starting from the top to the bottom) tells the hour, the second row of lights tells the minutes, while the third row tells the seconds. Good luck! I hope you manage to read it right and make it in time to all your appointments!

    A great new German film: Good Bye Lenin

    If you are looking for English language films you should head to the Forum Oberkassel. There's always 2 or 3 films shown in the original version here. On Wednesday evenings there's a sneak preview (= you don't know what film will be shown) on here every week at 8.15 pm - and films are shown in their original versions.

    Tickets only cost 4.20 for the preview! Normal prices are around 5-6 Euro.

    The address is Hansaallee 245, 40549 Düsseldorf. Take subway 74 or 76 to Lörickerstrasse.

    Or then... send a postcard!

    When you are in Düsseldorf and need to check your email or want to check what's going on on VT there are several places to do this. I am trying to find out where they are and will list as many as possible here.

    On the third floor of the department store "Kaufhof" at Königsallee there are several computers that have internet access. I think the sign said that it's € 1 for half an hour. Königsallee is right in the city centre, subways and trams stop at Heinrich-Heine-Allee, the Kaufhof is right next to the stop.

    The g@rden is a bar at the Rhine (close to the Burgplatz in the old town) which apparently has an Internet cafe as well. Unfortunately I don't know any prices, sorry! Their website is http://www.garden.de, the address is Rathausufer 8, 40218 Düsseldorf.

    Cinemas
    There are are a lot of small lovely cinemas in Düsseldorf. You can read about their programme in the 'Biograph', a monthly cinema programme. (http://www.biograph-online.de).
    In my first week in Düsseldorf I bought a membership card of the MEK Club for 10 € and after only 3 weeks I saved the 10€ that I paid for it (A film is 4€ instead of 6,50€ without card)

    The memebership card is valid in the following cinemas:

    Metropol, Brunnenstrasse 20, Bilk

    Souterrain, Dominikanerstrasse 4, Oberkassel (see below)

    Black Box, Schulstrasse 4 (Film Museum), Altstadt

    Cinema in der Altstadt, Schneider-Wibbel-Gasse 5

    Bambi, Klosterstrasse 78, City Centre
