    • Day 1

      Tag 1 - Düsseldorf & Altstadt

      June 22, 2022 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

      Mit dem ICE ging’s ab halb 8 weiter nach Düsseldorf, Ankunft war gegen halb 10 bei sommerlichem Wetter und Sonnenschein. Vom Bahnhof zuerst ab ins Hotel Residenz und nach dem Checkin gleich weiter in die Altstadt, vorbei an historischen Gebäuden in die erste Brauerei auf ein altes Lager (in 0,2l-Gläsern). Nach der ersten Runde führte der Weg noch weiter ins Engelchen (eine kleine Rockbar in die Kurze Straße) auf einen Absacker und dann endlich zurück ins Hotel, endlich ins Bett.

      Morgen geht‘s der Weg am Vormittag weiter nach Eindhoven und danach aufs Festival.

    • Day 47

      Arriving on the continent

      July 6, 2023 in Germany ⋅ ☁️ 23 °C

      Today we woke up and got ready to go for breakfast. We took a walk down the royal mile as it had been reopened after the events yesterday. We walked down to Holyroodhouse, seeing the palace and also the Scottish Parliament house. We ended up grabbing breakfast next to our hostel and Erin grabbed a donut for the road. We walked to the tram stop and jumped on the airport tram. Once at the airport, it was so busy. People were everywhere. We eventually got to check our bags in, they even make you put it on the belt which is fun. We finally got through security and had one final Wetherspoons hoorah. Erin had her wine and I grabbed another coffee. The flight was pretty easy but a bit delayed. We ended up in Dusseldorf around 5pm. Ironically I said to Erin, they never really care about questioning people in Europe but the guy asked me my plans for staying in Germany. Luckily he was cute. Erin's bag came out quickly but mine took forever.
      We jumped in an uber and the poor guys GPS took him to a tunnel. He didn't know where to go and his English was bad but he was so lovely. We struggled to find the entrance but finally found it. After dragging the bags up stairs, we got to our massive apartment that has 5 beds. Erin and I literally have our own bedrooms which was unexpected. We quickly got ready and headed to our tour meeting point.
      We walked through the old town which is gorgeous. There was so many people out enjoying the evening. We stood awkwardly by the meeting fountain as there was noone else around but then our guide Theresa. She told us we were the only ones on the tour tonight and was scared because we were 'native' English speakers. We walked to the first brewery whilst chatting and getting to know Theresa, she was so lovely. We had Altbeer which is a Dusseldorf speciality, this place had been brewing since 1640. The waitstaff carried big trays with about 30 small glasses of beer just exchanging glasses. Theresa told us you have to put the coasters on top of the beer to tell them you're finished or they'll keep bringing you glasses of it. The beer was great and the vibes were very fun.
      We walked to the next place which was a more modern but the beer was very good. On the walk to the next place, Theresa told us about a traditional shot like Jager but more herby. Erin and I took a shot with varying success (please see attached footage). The final place was a good drop as well and we asked Theresa for her suggestions on Dusseldorf. She had loved our accents and learning our words for things. It was such a fun evening. Erin and I then went to a restaurant around the corner to grab a schnitzel and beer. Everyone was super lovely and helping us out as we speak no German. We then walked back to the apartment and headed off to sleep.

      3 Days in Düsseldorf

      October 15, 2023 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 52 °F

      We flew in from Olbia, grabbed our car and checked into the beautiful Living Hotel De Medici. A quick drop of the bags and we made our way to lunch, we went to a wine bar/deli called Ghorban that has a location in Aachen also that I love and this was equally great!! Next we walked to a very cool wine bar down the street, it was a cool atmosphere with stone walls and ceilings and as the evening progressed it had a lively crowd. Hours later and we were hungry, so of course what’s better than a döner kebab 🤣. We walked home while freezing our butts off and eating our sandwiches. A fun end to a great day!! Day 2- Klaus had an early morning dentist appointment, he brought back cappuccinos and delicious french pastries for breakfast in bed. He had to get changed for business meetings and I got cleaned up and spent the day exploring. We checked out a couple other wine bars and went to a tapas place for dinner. Day 3- Breakfast in bed again! Klaus left for meetings and I spent the day walking around and doing a little shopping. Klaus got back and met me for a glass of wine and dinner at an Italian restaurant. Early night to bed, we fly home tomorrow.Read more

      Day 7 - Dusseldorf Stadt Bummel

      September 16, 2023 in Germany ⋅ ☁️ 25 °C

      My dream day = walking around town solo, iPods in, exploring with no agenda and no commitments (other than a Kaffee und Kuchen stop.)

      Coming upon cool places like Little Japan Town, great summer sales and the Thalia Mayersche Bookstore with the best couch view on the top floor.

      Ended with the Closing Ceremonies - and Cheers to a successful work week for Inventa!

      Dusseldorf Breweries

      August 14, 2022 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 31 °C

      Our first day in Dusseldorf was fab. We headed into the old town after dropping off our luggage. It was ridiculously hot and down on the Rhine promenade there was very little shade, but it's a wonderful town to wander around. We passed St Nicholas Church which has a famed twisted spire, and a Japanese food market, and the statues representing the founding of the city and some cartwheeling kids - apparently cartwheeling is historically associated with Dusseldorf. At Uerige, a traditional brewery of Dusseldorf speciality Alt Bier, we gave the local delicacies a try. Like Cologne, they mark your bill on the beer mats, including our order of German bar snacks - I had mett (smoked pork mince on bread) and B had liver sausage, a type of terrine and the mett too. Given the heat, we also treated ourselves to a rather fancy ice cream!

      After a siesta out of the sun, we headed back into town. Passing the high-end Köningsallee, or Kö, there was a cycle race taking place, doing laps of the road at great speed! We wandered through some of the other breweries of Alt Bier, including zum Schlussel and Olbermann. On the way back, the race had finished but not the festivities, and we watched a band performing everything from Snow Patrol to the Pogues (and lots of German songs we didn't know!), whilst swathes of green parakeets flew down the allee!

    • Day 15

      Dusseldorf, Germany

      September 17, 2016 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

      Not much to report here. We spent a night in Dusseldorf and we weren't really impressed by the city. We did learn though that the drinking age in Germany is 16 years old and that there aren't any laws prohibiting public drinking. Those two combinations above left us thinking Dusseldorf was a pretty interesting place once the sun set. We also noticed a lot of middle eastern people in the city which was probably due to the German intake of refuges in the past year or two. Not too much of an identity to this city, but we'll cross it off the list. We did however have our first authentic German meal at one of the local breweries.Read more

    • Day 28

      Schauspieler und Kultur

      June 2, 2016 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

      Die beiden Gastgeber von gestern haben mir noch ein Paar Tipps gegeben für die heutige Route. Das Wetter ist wieder strahlend schön und es wird sich zeigen dass das Hochwasser auf diesem Abschnitt nur noch zu einigen kurzen Streckensperrungen führt, der Rest aber super befahrbar ist. Die ersten Kilometer führen schön durchs Grüne. Später bei Lülsdorf kürze ich den „offiziellen“ Weg etwas ab.

      In Köln lege ich einen Halt ein und besichtige die Stadt. Zweimal drehe ich auch meine Runde um den Dom um Aussicht nach einem sicheren Abstellplatz für mein Rad zu finden. Leider wimmelt es überall von Leuten und nach den letzten Sylvester-Berichten von Köln scheint es hier ja nicht so sicher zu sein. Also verschiebe ich das mit dem Dom-Besuch auf ein anderes Mal. Ansonsten ist Köln ganz nett, aber sehr touristisch überlaufen. Nach einem Mittagessen klicke ich mich darum schon bald wieder in die Pedalen.

      Nach Köln geht es wieder an schönen Landstreifen vorbei. Das kleine aber altehrwürdige Städtchen Zons soll ich besichtigen, meinten meine Gastgeber. Es war ganz nett, aber etwas sehr ausgestorben. Das Eis aus der Eisdiele schmeckte aber hervorragend. Über die „Fleher-Brücke“ quere ich schliesslich den Rhein und könnten nun geradeaus nordwärts nach Düsseldorf einfahren. Der „offizielle“ Weg macht dagegen eine Schleife alles dem Fluss entlang. In der Hitze überlege ich mir, ob ich mir diesen Umweg antun soll. Mache es dann aber doch. Es zeigt sich später, dass es sich die Entscheidung lohnte. Denn die Einfahrt in die Stadt und den Medienhafen ist auf dem offiziellen Weg durchaus spektakulär. Düsseldorf gefällt mir auf Anhieb!

      Nach dem Gespräch mit den drei Künstlern in meiner Unterkunft gestern habe ich heute Lust auf etwas „Schauspielkultur“. Im Internet finde ich relativ schnell ein passendes Theaterstück. Also besuche ich heute mal ein echtes deutsches Theater. Für mich war’s Premiere, für die Schauspieler tägliche Arbeit. Das Stück war sehr unterhaltsam und ich um eine Erfahrung reicher. 😀

      Tag 17: Bonn bis Düsseldorf | Highlights dieses Routenabschnitts der EuroVelo 15

      > Düsseldorf ist eine meiner Favoritenstädte der ganzen Reise, hier lohnt sich auch ein mehrtägiger Stopp (wir waren auf der Rückreise nochmals hier)
      > Theater an der Kö
      > Relaxen im Medienhafen in der Abendsonne
      > Nächtlicher Ausblick vom Rheinturm in Düsseldorf (haben wir erst auf dem Rückweg der ganzen Reise gemacht)
