Favorite thing: Travelling with our little rascal Ilja is not always that easy. He needs space to play and not to be in a car too long/ The low fares of V-Bird flying from Niederrhein in combination with flights within Europe give us the opportunity to travel with our litle boy. It has been a great experience that will be having many follw-ups.
Few benefits ...
Favorite thing: For people in the East of the Netherlands this new airport is ideal to start travelling fast, cheap and thus efficient to a fine selection of destinations. Only 40 minutes drive from Arnhem, 25 minutes from Nijmegen and only 15 from Venlo.
Plus the low parking fees make it double attractive. From € 6,= per day and a maximum of € 30,= ! Neither Schiphol nor Düsseldorf can offer these low prices.
Favorite thing: The Terremoto Festival at Weeze's airport which takes place here once a year.
Fondest memory: I was lucky to have backstage tickets for the whole 2003 festival so it was very exciting days for me. I met heroes like Dave Grohl (Nirvana, Foo Fighters) or German legends Die Ärzte, funny Finnish guys from bands like HIM, The Rasmus and The 69 Eyes and rockers like Paradise Lost. We got drinks for free and I just loved having a look behind the scenes :-) And of course we saw quite many gigs, too!
From war to welfare
Favorite thing: The old airforce base at Weeze finally has found it's destination. Information about the airport itself is available under http://www.airport-niederrhein.de/
