Dusseldorf: The most beautiful city on the Rhine, or at least one of them

When the sun is shining, and the weather is sweet to go out and discover your city. No matter if you live here for a long time or you´ve just moved to it, there is always something new to explore. You could watch at the same place or the same building, and you still find something, which you haven´t recognized before. That is what happened when I go out to have a stroll through the town or meet up with friends.

Brunch at Schwan´s

A couple of days ago I met up with my peeps for brunch at the Schwan, a restaurant which is located right in the middle of Dusseldorf´s old town. It´s always a pleasure having delicious food together with some lovely people. After we spent almost five hours, eating, chatting and enjoying the life we left the restaurant to have a little walk to give our bodies a chance to process all that food.

Rhine promenade


We walked down to the river. Although it was still freezing the town was full of people, and the Kasematten at the riverfront have already crowded. You could find a lot of different bars and restaurants with a beautiful view on to the Rhine and its surroundings.

As it was such a brilliant day with a lot of sunshine, we continued our walk alongside the river and followed the rhine-embankment-promenade for a while. According to the city of Dusseldorf, this is one of the most beautiful boardwalks. It “symbolizes Düsseldorfers’ Rhenish joie-de-vivre and particularly in summer is an expression of the city’s Mediterranean lifestyle.

Every day is good enough to enjoy this unique atmosphere around the river and the old town.

After a little while of walking we left the riverfront and went back to the old town, we passed the Carlsplatz, the oldest farmer´s market of Dusseldorf. This place is a treasure trove of different goods as exotic fruits, local vegetables, fresh fish, meat, and poultry. You will find a wide range of fresh baked bread and pastries, cheese, confectionery. Specialties of coffee as well as flowers and plants. I know this place very well as my workplace is situated just around the corner. I spend a lot of time here during my lunch breaks.
