    Taking a virtual tour of Düsseldorf

    by markusch Updated Nov 15, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you plan to go to Düsseldorf, why not take a convenient virtual guided tour by car around the city center? Have a look at my video here:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7to3xneqhiI

    This tour will take you into Düsseldorf from the Kniebrücke-bridge, you will see the provincial parliament, the TV tower, the wonderful Rhine-Park, Medienhafen, the Gehry-Buildings, Museum Ehrenhof and Düsseldorf's iconic steel rope suspension bridges. Actually, you will drive through most of these sites as a passenger aboard a car.

  • Düsseldorfer Denkmal

    by Mariajoy Updated May 23, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I really liked the design of this "monument". We came across it by accident and it has taken me ages to find any info on it until recently.

    Mack-Brunnen (named after it's creator)

    Standort: Platz der Deutschen Einheit
    Künstler: Heinz Mack (1988)
    Material: Beton / Edelstahl / Naturstein (Concrete/high grade steel/natural stone)

    Wissenswertes:
    Die 3 dreieckigen großen Brunnen-Segel (3,6,9m hoch)
    sind von Wasserfontänen umgeben.

    Interesting fact: (well... that's debatable :)) The 3 large triangular sails (3,6,9m high) are surrounded by a water fountain.

    Many thanks to my VT friend pieter-jan v for helping me find this information!

    Fine, you may have every edition of guide book on Düsseldorf. But give yourself a freedom to follow your own instinct. Many alleys and corners will touch your sense and enrich you on whats the meaning of nice, with capital N. No need to worry to get lost in Düsseldorf. After all, its you that know what you want.

    Dreischeibenhaus

    by antistar Written Jan 5, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Another example of great modern architecture in Düsseldorf is the Dreischeibenhaus, a classified historic monument and an excellent example of post-war German office buildings. The building, headquarters of Thyssen-Krupp AG, was completed in 1960 and comprises of three staggered parallel buildings. It is a distinguished looking building, and looks great from a number of viewpoints around the city, such as the one in the picture over the Landskrone park from Heinrich-Heine-Allee.

    Carlsplatz

    by antistar Written Jan 4, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This was my first sight in Düsseldorf outside of the station, and I found it somewhat of a regular hub on my walks around the city. Carlsplatz is a busy market, and easily reached from the station, walking straight up the Friedrich-Ebert-Str directly in front of the main exit to the station, and just walking until you reach the market place. The market place itself used to be for the local farmers, but is now, as you might expect of a city like Düsseldorf, a "gourmet's paradise", as the tourist blurb states.

    Apart from being a good place to buy fresh food, it is also conveniently close to a number of good places to eat and drink, like Uerige's traditional brewery.

    The statues in the Centre were remarkable. This, as you can see ( I hope ), is a fountain that pours down perfectly.

    The Wilhelm-Marx-Haus is Germany's first office "skyscraper". It was built in 1924 and back then it was a revolutionary idea to build a 56 metre high building full of offices!
