The first glimpse of Germany

When we arrived at Düsseldorf, it was only 2100, but during winter, it was dark. The journey from the airport to the city center was impressive. Before embarking on the real train, we had to get into sky train! The first ride in our life.

The city is small, combination of both (very) modern and historical old city. It gave us the impression of Amsterdam due to the canal-like river. However, in my non-architect-ly eyes, the building is far different from the Dutch. A nice town to relax and enjoy life. Pharmaceutical-related items like formula milk for children are cheap compared to what we have in Barcelona. I can´t wait for the next trip. Berlin - here we come!

The City Hall

Beautiful side walk cafe at the Rhine riverbank

An Art Museum with Pied Piper plague on the top, wish it can be viewed clearly.

Beatiful canal-like river..Makes me think of Amsterdam

The best Holandes pommes with curry sauce in the world - and it is cheap!

In front of St Lambertus church. The sun is shining but it was still cold.

Knock-knock! Whose car?

Rhine tower from the other side of the river. Magnificent view!
