‘Round Düsseldorf

It occurs to me that despite having lived here for almost three months, I’ve shared relatively little about Düsseldorf.

So while a more detailed account of being an expat in Germany (again) is in the works, I thought I’d show off a bit the city to help you get to know my new adoptive town…

The first thing you need to know about Düsseldorf is that it’s green.

The next thing you need to know is that it’s pretty.

Really pretty.

I mean, really really pretty.

Düsseldorf is known in Germany as being pretty chic, too. Thanks to its Einkaufsmöglichkeiten (basically “shops”).

But D-town is also quite traditional.

And to top it all off: a skyline which is quickly becoming my one of my favourites.

  1. That picture with the colorful houses is PERFECT! Seriously, it’s the kind of picture I wouldn’t mind having in a frame somewhere. And what makes it even better (if that was possible) is that gay couple on the left. (Hope they really are a couple, it looks as if they’re holding hands). Okay, I’ve added Düsseldorf to my list and it will be the first city I’ll visit in Germany (one day…)

    1. I’m glad you like it! It’s such a pretty street, but it took a lot of editing to really bring the colours out on the photo. It’s a shot I really like, just because I stumbled upon the street purely by accident.

      You should definitely come to Dusseldorf – I’ll give you a grand tour, haha. Though I hate to break you heart and tell you that the guys in the corner weren’t gay :(

  2. Love those coloured houses, looks almost Scandinavian. Dusseldorf is the only city in Germany I’ve ever visited and that was when I was 11 so I probably should get back there again soon!

    1. You definitely should, though there are at least 5 other places you should check out in Germany before Dusseldorf – it’s such a fantastic country, you would absolutely love it.

  3. I also seem to remember that there are some interesting bar/microbreweries in the Old Town, I went there on a work trip once in the middle of winter, and we spent quite a bit of time there!

    1. The Old Town is FULL of bars and microbreweries. It’s known as ‘the longest bar in the world’ because there are so many – I’ve spent plenty of time there, too! Did you like Dusseldorf when you were here?
