After leaving Hanover my next stop was the city of Dusseldorf. On my bucket list I had noted some of the typical landmarks of the city:
- the Rhein-Tower
- the Rheinknie-Bridge
- the Media-Port with the Gehry Buildings
- and the old town in the city
As I wanted to take some pictures at night and meet some friends in town I decided to stay two days in Dusseldorf. After checking-in in my hotel I then went to scout a bit around the city. Dusseldorf is located directly at the Rhein-River, so most of the action and interesting views are located along the river.
First thing you will see when you walk along the river is the impressive Rheintower. With over 240 meters height its the tallest building around and it houses a revolving restaurant and an observation deck. From here you can have a fantastic view over the whole city.
The Media-Port ("Medienhafen") is not only populated with lots of media companies, but also reflects the modern lifestyle with really impressive architecture:
