    Our favourite thing to do in Düsseldorf. It was our second time visiting from England. Food and drink are very delicious the experience seeing the city 360 is amazing.

    A beautiful boulevard lined with mature trees. Peaceful yet busy and a perfect spot to take in the city.

    this is a nice distraction on a sunny day to walk the full length between the bridges that mark its limits. I expected some type of flea market but there were just bars and restaurants. the view from these bars is great as you see the river and its passing traffic along with the bridges and the tower. the prices in the bar reflect the location but still not too expensive. might be a different place when it rains but the bars seemed well covered.

    Really enjoyed it here... The views and the buildings are really lovely, especially on a clear and sunny day. A lot to see and feel and one of the highlights of visit to Dusseldorf.

    I love to take a walk in Wildpark. It's quite relaxing, you get in touch with nature and animals. It's free and always clean. A must do if you want to get to know Düsseldorf and see that it's not only Kö and Altstadt.

    The Schloss grounds are lovely for a picnic or a family outing. The Christmas markets at Schloss Benrath are also wonderful - if you can find it, I recommend the Sake Glühwein!

    Fresh flowers, vegetables and small food shops. A delightful respite from what is a dirty noisy city. If you go North on the small streets from the market you walk into the old town and a nice food and shopping area,

    A few weeks before we set off on our holiday, we read the Tripadvisor reviews about the Rex Rheni, and there didn't seem to be a good word to be had..
    However, as first time users of Saga, Eurostar & Rhine river cruises, we had a brilliant holiday and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
    Our main concern was that the cruise may be cancelled due to low river levels, and no rain, but all was fine.
    Saga took care of everything - from the executive taxi, check in at St Pancras, coach from Brussells to Cologne, and arrival on board Rex Rheni.
    We knew the cabins were compact, we checked out the ship on a 360 virtual tour, so we knew what to expect. Yes the ship is a little dated, you could say charming, but we likened it to a floating Warners hotel - also for adults only.
    We were allocated a table for 6 in the restaurant, & soon made friends with our fellow guests. The table was ours for the whole 13 day cruise.
    Very sadly, Queen Elizabeth's funeral took place while we were on board. We held the National Silence and were able to watch via satellite TV as the day unfolded.
    The staff were really friendly and helpful, especially looking after more mature guests. We didn't realise until the Captain's Farewell Dinner just how many members of the crew, catering & housekeeping were looking after our every need. Not to mention the bar staff who kept us topped up at all times!
    We enjoyed the tours, and these were very well organised with English speaking guides, and not too strenuous for people of mixed mobility.
    We were unable to book the tours in advance, as Saga HQ never did answer the phone. SAGA PLEASE NOTE.
    All in all, a very enjoyable first time cruise.

    Lovely park immediately next to the Aqua Zoo. Walked in mid Sept , a lot of blooms had passed , but still a beautiful park walk. Highly recommend.

    A great sea and maritime place, but what a terrible reception. The hard faced receptionist said nothing. Faced her, said two old folk, without a word she pressed some buttons and waited, I looked at the display and gave over the money. And that was that. No words, no " go that way". Nothing.
    I work in a similar job for a museum, and would never greet customers without a single word. Weird behaviour.
    Aquarium was good, well worth a visit if in Dusseldorf.

    I'm hardly a fashionista, but both my wife and sister-in-law have *opinions* about fashion, so when I found myself in Dusseldorf after a work trip recently, I figured I'd have a look around, and take some pictures that I could send them.

    As it turns out, I had a blast exploring this exhibit. Pierre Cardin's high fashion clothes are a brilliant snapshot of what people in the 1960s thought of as futuristic and avant-garde. Every piece is so "of-the-60s" in a truly delightful way, with some pieces bordering on the hilariously ridiculous. Words don't do it justice, so I'm going to attach a bunch of photos that I took.

    If you find yourself in Dusseldorf before May 2020, this is definitely worth a visit.

    Now this exhibition with paintings made by Lynette Yiadom-Boakye is a special one. The artist, a daughter from parents born in Ghana, has developed expert skills of painting, as based upon learning from pioneers in former times. One can recognise that Lynette Yiadom-Boakye must have looked at Rembrandt, Singer-Sargent, as well as Goya and other old 'Masters”. Information from other reviews tell 'also at historic family portraits'.
    The often imaginated people as portrait or figure(s) are placed in context, whereby the artist uses color and darkness / lightness of background as important, support. There is history, as influenced by her background. There is an eye that exposes thought, experience and emotion of people portrayed. Yes, all figures are black. Which is a normality, unusal for white people, like the author of this review. Like many, his experience is tainted by collections in museums of the Western World, where mostly white people feature in paintings. Yet, Lynette Yiadom-Boakye convinces open-minded spectators by the self evidency of the scenes and roles of the characters she depicts. Class.
    Georges Braque – Erfinder des Kubismus. One might argue whether Cézanne was not 'the inventor'. But the exhibition contains nice art of Braqua and colleagues, covering early, mid- and late stage of cubism.

    The Stadternahmemonument is the most unique statue I have ever seen. Located in the Old Town, this large monument was created in 1988, commemorating the 700th anniversary of the city rights to Dusseldorf, Germany. We were treated to a detailed explanation of this beautiful statue by locals
    Klaus & Karin! The statue depicts the Battle of Worringen, the City Seal, and Parish Church. The statue is in a bustling area of town, where there is so much to see and do. Do yourself a favor and check out this magnificent monument!

    An authentic corner of Japan in Düsseldorf. The garden outside is quite impressive and well kept, but it is on the inside (Japanese House) that you will relive Japan (if you have ever visited it). It is the small things, the receptionists, the cubicles in their reception area, the exposition, the corridors, etc. Definitely worth a visit.
