    Der Tag in Duisburg

    July 2, 2017 in Germany ⋅

    Heute waren wir gut unterwegs. Im Industriepark, der ein altes stillgelegtes Stahlwerk, welches man besichtigen und beklettern kann, enthält. Dann gings ins Museum für deutsche Binnenschifffahrt und auf einem altem Kohledampfer. Danach zum Tiger & Turtle, einer Skulptur die einer Achterbahn nachempfunden ist. Morgen geht es weiter nach Düsseldorf.Read more

    Duisburg

    July 5, 2015 in Germany ⋅

    It's the unanimous opinion of everyone who's been there: 'don't go to Duisburg' they say. Well, while I'm in Germany, I want to see everything, the good the bad and the ugly. So off I went to Duisburg.

    Duisburg is one of several cities that makes up the Ruhrgebiet (Dortmund, Essen, Bochum, Gelsenkirchen are some of the others), with the Ruhrgebiet being the area most famous in Germany for 150 years of heavy industry. Steel, coal, the whole lot. My trip today to Duisburg was my first venture into the Ruhrgebiet.

    I have to admit, when I got on the train I was in two minds about getting off at Duisburg. It was an Intercity train to Amsterdam and everyone on there had either a rucksack or a suitcase. They were all off to Amsterdam, I was off to Duisburg. Anyway, when we pulled in to Duisburg I had enough strength if will to step off the train and not carry on to Amsterdam.

    I made my way out of the station, on to the Portsmouth Platz, and tried to get an intuitive sense of where the city centre proper lay. As there was a cluster of tall office blocks to my left, I decided to head that way. And off I went for a few hours wandering the streets of Duisburg.

    Duisburg, the city centre, is not particularly nice but also not completely hopeless or without charms. It's not decaying and it certainly isn't dangerous. For whatever reason the Rathaus (the town hall) is some what out of the centre, and I headed there. Well, this part of the city was really quite nice as was the Hafen a few kilometres further north . So, all in all, Duisburg is pleasant enough and I'm willing to be a lone, defiant voice and say, 'Duisburg, do go there.'

    Duisburg Innenhafen

    July 5, 2015 in Germany ⋅

    Duisburg Innenhafen, a vast network of water channels just off the Rhein in Duisburg. Used, in the past, for loading cargo and shipping it up the Rhein. Today It has been gentrified and is now a combination of offices and apartments. It's an interesting landscape and by far the best area in Duisburg

    Rheinorange

    March 26, 2017 in Germany ⋅

    Liebe Follower, das heißt lieber August, liebe Mutti, besonders die Mutti, die mit ihrem kaputten Knie zu Hause auf dem Sofa liegen muss. Ich werde dir jetzt einmal erzählen, was du in der großen weiten Welt so vermissen musst.

    Da wäre zum einen das wundervolle Wetter. Und natürlich den Ort, an dem die Ruhr in den Rhein fließt. Das ist in Duisburg. Und dort steht auch die Landmarke “Rheinorange“, eine Stahlbramme von dem Kölner Künstler Lutz Fritsch, bei Rheinkilometer 780. An diesem Punkt hat die Ruhr 220 km von Winterberg aus zurückgelegt.

    Hier gibt es viel Gegend, Wasser und eine Menge Schiffe, die den Rhein auf und ab fahren. Man kann stundenlang am Ufer sitzen und einfach nur schauen.
    Wenn man nicht Pipi muss...
