Walking at the market

You will find one of the most beautiful promenades along the Rhein in Düsseldorf. The embankment promenade is very open and you can feel the relaxed atmosphere when you stroll here. I think one of the nicest things is the green grass on the other side of the Rhein - it make the promenade more open than what you see in other cities.

As you can see on the pictures the steps on the Burgplatz is a very popular meeting place and the number of cafés or outdoor bars with heating is impressive.

The old town or Altstadt is full of street bars, music and small places where you can get a snack while you are walking around. I had to go for a bratwurst which is a must in Germany. This part of the city is also full of nice trendy shops. The city hosts the worlds largest fashion fare "the cpd" where the designers meet several times every year and this guarantees that the shops are up to date.

The city was very lively today and you saw full bars and restaurants everywhere. Germany was playing Cypres in football later this evening - not in Düsseldorf, it was in Hannover but the tension was high anyway.

I like Germany, but lots of Brits used to think I was mad when I said I was going there for a holiday break - they didn´t think there was anything to see or do - how wrong they were.
