Last weekend it was the official opening of the new subway´s lines in Düsseldorf, that is the reason why I decided to have a look and tell you more about it

As you can imagine the city hall prepared a huge celebration: music, beer, activities for children…

Maybe most of you are wondering why I am talking about a subway line. Well, the truth is that these new lines are planned since 15 years ago and it took so long to build them because each from their 6 stops were created by a different artist. Which means that each stop has its own personality.

Every stop is work of art. Some of them are created to make us to forget that we are using a public transport, others are thought to make us feeling in the space and the are also stops that interact with us thanks to LED screens.

Following you can find an article from the NY Times to get more information about this modern and new line.

During the opening day we could find out more information about the new lines and we could take the subway for free. Here you have a picture with all the new information to do not miss a subway 😉

 

 

Gourmet Festival Düsseldorf

This week we are going to talk about food. As I previously told you in German it is usual to organize street festival during the summer season to enjoy the good weather. Ready to know more about it?

Gourmet Festival Düsseldorf 2015 

Last weekend took place the Gourmet Festival Düsseldorf. I have already talked you about this festival. During two days the Königsalle was filled with stands full of food.

The visitor could find everything. The avenue was surrounded with international and national stands where people could eat german, french and brazilian food, among others.

The festival takes place once per year since four years ago and it is a good opportunity for restaurants to come into contact with possible clients.

I hope that I have whetted you appetite and that you are motivated to take part in this gastronomic event. We read us again next week! 🙂
