  • Strolling in the Hofgarten

    This beautiful park in the middle of Duesseldorf is popular with locals and tourists and a perfect place for a late Autumn sunny Sunday morning stroll. It's full of old and contemporary sculpture including a Henry Moore no less!! It's also alive with all kinds of birds, blue ***, wrens, robins, swans, Canada geese, mallards and magpies (Elster in German ;-) It really is quite stunning to see all the leaves turning various shades of red and gold around the lake.

    It is the park nearby my apartment where I usually jog ... it is quite huge park and divided into three parts...one of its parts is connected to the small garden in front of Tonhalle and you only have to cross the road to reach the Rhine promenade. The other part which closes to Jacobistrasse has a music pavilion and sometimes they have open air music concert there. I really love this park!

    Hofgarten is the most central and biggest park in Dusseldorf. What made me the biggest impression was an alley with illuminated benches. Actually there were fluorescent lights in each edge of the bench and also it was keeping warm. Later I was told that there was some art project few years ago and they left the benches. Then I stopped near a lake with a lot of ducks in it and around its coast. When I got closer to take a picture of them, one of the ducks went against me, croaking. "Hey, ok, I'm going back..." and in that moment a rat passed just in front of me. Wondering what was that, another rat ran into the bushes!

    Sculpture by Henry Moore

    As I was strolling in the Hofgarten I came across this sculpture by Henry Moore - I recognised it immediately as his work and was really surprised to find it here!

    A tree in a hothouse

    Hofgarten is a big park in Düsseldorf's city centre. It's a beautiful park - with little lakes, trees, statues - and a strange art installation with a big tree lying in a hothouse....
