Land Nordrhein-Westfalen Off The Beaten Path

  • Kaiserswerth

    Düsseldorf Off The Beaten Path

    This old stretcher is quite different to those we know by watching 'Emergency Room' on TV. It was used in 1850 in Diakonissenanstalt Kaiserswerth on the Rhine. I wonder about the cover on top. Was it used in general or only for expired / passed away Patients? I found this stretcher in the entrance of the nursing directorate / PDL...

  • Outside Düsseldorf

    Düsseldorf Off The Beaten Path

    Mettmann is a small town in the "Bergisches Land". It's the town I work in and I normally just see the same spots here ("our" villa and the local supermarket) but there's also a lovely Market Square with a big church surrounded by cute slate buildings here. The name Mettmann is a bit funny actually as the translation would be "Mince Meat Man"....

  • Schloss Benrath

    Düsseldorf Off The Beaten Path

    We did it as kids in the afternoon, adult-visitors do the same. The Ballet-school is in the big main-building of the Orangerie. The other door leads you to the public librairy if you want to warm up and read some intern. magazine and newspapers. This site is the place of the previous castle (16th, 17th century). The dark building was the horse's...

  • Food and Drink

    Düsseldorf Off The Beaten Path

    It seemed like everyone who came this way was heading for the ice cream shop. As we stood outside eating our tubs we'd take bets on who was gonna go into the shop and who was gonna pass by. Most people went in, even joggers, so it was easy money. These two girls had that look in their eyes - it was a dead cert they were gonna go in for ice creams....

  • Medienhafen (Media Port)

    Düsseldorf Off The Beaten Path

    At night there's a clock at the side of the Rhine tower. Have a look in the evening and try to figure out how it works. I understood it but I'm not telling you - it's more fun to find out yourself! Little hint: This picture was taken at 6.49 p.m., 14 seconds before 6:50 p.m.!

  • Nordpark

    Düsseldorf Off The Beaten Path

    This is the park where the Aqua Zoo and the Japanese Gardens are located. The Japanese Gardens are rather small but quite cute, the Aqua Zoo is not really my cup of tea (too many stuffed animals and fishes). And the Nordpark is a nice place for a walk in the sun or a game of Boule.

  • Oberkassel

    Düsseldorf Off The Beaten Path

    The opposite bank has traditionally been the residence place for the wealthy people in Düsseldorf. There is not much to see in its elegant streets but from here you can see a different perspective of the Old town.

  • Hattingen

    Hattingen is a small city just outside Bochum, it is old classic German town and very nice old city to visit and relax.

  • Ordensburg Vogelsang - history AND...

    The Ordensburg Vogelsang (~Order Castle Birdsong) lies on the outskirt of the Eifel nature park. It was built in the mid-thirties by the NSDAP as a boarding school for the children of party members and other selected promising youngsters. The castle was only partially finished in the first place, and got partially destroyed during air raids in the...

  • Follow your nose

    This page doesn't cover any specific tip but it's just to pass on what I think is a great idea. Other than picturesque villages and rustic ruins there is are valleys of nature filled wonders to explore in the Eifel.So find yourself a car and just follow the roads to wherever they may lead you. At times it's the unexpected treasures that await your...

  • Tecklenberg

    Located on a ridgetop between Enschede,NL and Osnabruck , Tecklenberg is a nice little town. After the flatlands of the Munsterland and NL it provided a bit of a change. The Altstadt is very pretty and well kept ,with nice crafts shops and cafes.The ridgetop setting affords views of the "Tecklenbergerland"with its ridges and forests...We were there...

  • Kleve

    Kleve is a nice town located in the Lower Rhine or Niederrhein area. Its a little finger of Deutschland tucked between Gelderland and Noord-Brabant Provinces of The Netherlands.Not a touristy place really...but it made a nice lunch stop for us in June 04 as we were travelling between Den Bosch and Zutphen...The town is graced with a hilltop...

Maybe a day or two in the Lippeland is what you need.Some nice country roads -well assuming you don't want to zoom about on the Autobahn-Will take you from the Ruhrgebeit to Schwalenberg in a few hours.
