This summer we rented a cabin on the border of The Netherlands and Germany. It was located right in the middle of some cities we were planning to visit. One of those cities was Düsseldorf.
We had a great day there! We walked around the Königsallee (main shopping street), grabbed a snack at Carlsplatz (a food/drinks market with a great vibe!) and ended up in the south of the city to check out the Gehry buildings.
I'm not usually a person to get all excited about buildings, but I am very happy I saw these. I haven't quite decided whether I think they're great or awful though. I mean, you've got to love how they were built. They stand out because they're so different from anything else. Plus, the location right next to the river makes it such an idyllic place. But we had so many questions! When the sun shines directly on the building, does it blind you? Since the building has curves and those curves have windows in them, does that mean that people from those apartments look right into each other's kitchens instead of having a nice view of the street?
We stopped for a coffee at Rocca at Gehry's, which is located on the ground floor of the building. Since it's so close to a famous "must-see", I figured everthing woud be ridiculously expensive. It does have a fancy feel to it, but the prices were very reasonable. If you're ever planning on visiting and the weather is nice, grab a drink on the terrace and enjoy the view!
