Rhine tower – Tallest building in Dusseldorf (part 2)

In case you didn’t hear about Rhine tower, don’t worry. This is the attraction that it is impossible not to notice.

It has 168 floors and to its peak you arrive at breakneck speed, in 50 seconds. For those who are not huge fans of such fast elevators, here’s a tip. Close your eyes and ears, there is a pressure.

And as if this was not enough to make a tower unique, architect Horst Baumann made a light sculpture Lichtzeitpegel – “Light time level” which is actually the world’s largest digital clock that displays at night world time.

On special days, holidays, at night you have a magnificent, colorful light show.

So, not by any chance, do not miss the Rhine tower when touring Dusseldorf.

Burgplatz – paradise for gathering and socializing

One of the liveliest parts of the Altstadt.

In addition to being the link between Altstadt and Rheinuferpromenade (Old Town and Rhine promenade), Burgplatz is also a gathering place for tourists, as well as citizens of Dusseldorf.This square has great view on Rhine, lots of restaurants, brewery and of course central part – Schlossturm.

Schlossturm or “Castle Tower” now hosts Maritime Museum and offers interested tourists wonderful attraction to visit.

But, besides all of this, especially in the summer, or at least during warmer days, stairs that lead to Rhine promenade are full with people – young, old, happy, quiet, alone or in a larger society, couples …

Everyone is there. They usually sit and drink beer, wine, Killepitsch, Jagermeister, smoke or eat takeaway pizza.

And, usually, there are always some talented people eager for audience, performing – singing, playing, or dancing.

It’s a beautiful feeling to belong to the positive crowd.

Everyone is welcome !!!
