    Die Altstadt

    June 12, 2015 in Germany

    Die Altstadt -- the old town -- is where people go of an evening. I've been several times before, but this afternoon was my first time there with a camera. I wouldn't dare take my camera after the sun goes down. For what is strange about the Altstadt is how it can go from being the quiet, peaceful old part of Düsseldorf in the day, to the scene of debauchery that it becomes at night. To be fair, most of that is located on just one long street, but still.

    The reason why most of drinking that gets done in Düsseldorf gets done in the pubs and bards of the Altstadt, is because the Altstadt has forever been the site of breweries. There are a dozen or so of them here, brewing the 'Altbier' unique to Düsseldorf and the region.

    Apart from the breweries, every other building is either a cafe, a bar, a (Irish) pub or a restaurant. And the whole of the little old town is, as it should be, pedestrianised. I'm back off to the Altstadt now, for a meal at the Uerige brewery.

    Frankreichfest

    July 12, 2015 in Germany

    Ever since the signing of the Élysée Treaty in 1963 France and Germany have gone to great lengths to become as united as possible. The Frankreichfest in Düsseldorf -- that takes place every year on the weekend around the 14th of July -- is carried out with that intention in mind.

    It was a rainy weekend but that didn't stop over 100,000 visitors making their way to the Altstadt and checking out the Frankreichfest. I went along with a few French friends and we potted about the stalls. I was happy to try a Galette but steadfastly refused to give the Champignons a go. Cheeses, wines, Crepes, old Citroen cars, a 15 meter Eiffel Tower – everything you would expect was there. Each year, it is the turn of a different French region and this year it was Brittany’s. So there was pipe music, too, and people dressed in traditional Breton costume

    Meanwhile, in Brussels, Eurozone leaders gathered to negotiate the future of Greece. It is generally assumed that Merkel has run a tight ship in Germany and in Europe for the past decade or so. Whilst, on the other hand, Hollande is often reported as being the most unpopular French president there's been. One thing is for sure, though, and that is that Hollande and Hollande alone who has been the sole rational voice over the Greece crisis. This weekend was a triumph for French diplomacy, and Hollande has single handedly prevented Germany from inflicting a lot of reputational damage upon itself.
