I take advantage of some free time to describe Düsseldorf and Dortmund. I decided to talk about both, because as usual I made a selection of what I saw, but also to end (with next article about Soest) the description of the cities visited during the past weekend.
Starting from Düsseldorf, I can tell you that my friends and I went shopping most of the time and to a Chinese restaurant, were I tried some new food and something very hard: eating with chopsticks. 😂In the afternoon we were at the Girardet-Brücke, that is a bridge in the Königshalle, a generally crowded area, as there are different shops. Then we went to Johanneskirche, that is a church situated in a square dedicated to Martin Luther (the German name is Luther Platz); besides, outside the church there is a monument representing Bismarck. In the late afternoon, instead, we went to the best place (in my opinion) of the day: a bridge on the Rhine, in German Rheinbrücke. We walked among good music, restaurants offering local food and the sunset colours: despite some little differences, all that casted my mind back to Brighton Pire, where I was when I attended high school.
As far as Dortmund, we started with a delicious brunch in a a Turkish restaurant. In the morning I had actually also eaten a Bretzel with pudding (since we had leaft early). I must say that each time I go to the station I can’t avoid eating something sweet, though! 😆
Among the most important places of this city, we chose the main square, called Friedensplatz, where there is obviosuly the town hall. Then we chose another place dedicated to art, the Dortmund U, where we went on the seventh floor to take some group pictures and some of the city. It was also interesting to find out that the building name comes from Union, which was an industry producing beer.
Still because of the great passion we have for taking pictures from high perspectives, we went to Wetsfalenpark, where there is a tower, called Florianturm, from which it’s possible to take pictures of the city, though there is a freezing wind, as it is about 120 m high. Moreover, outside there were some adorable flamingos.
I hope, as usual, to have written a good article and see you soon!
