A huge Ferris wheel by the Rhine
A funny twisted church steeple
Fluffy clouds that make everything seem so unlike Christmas (apart from people running around without scarfs and gloves, and a brave one with a T-shirt only).
Düsseldorf panorama with the Rheinturm and one of the many bridges
And a glimpse to the fancy houses acoss the big river, with sheep grazing in front of skyscrapers
Rhine promenade and facades of old town
The story that will never come true, even though the shopping madness may give a different impression
An army of nutcrackers
A plush jungle in one of the store windows. The toys are not only beautifully arranged, but also brought to life which creates quite a lively scene. The prices aren't bad either.
The shortest escalator you may findJust one magic word for any chocolate/cake lover: Heinemann. The interior is just as sweet as the store windows, and has anything that makes your glands release endorphines uncontrollably.
Must-try: the best cherry-cake I've ever had.
A glimpse of the Königsallee, a luxury shopping street in the city center.Magic sunset on the way to another evening at the opera, and a rather shabby Duisburg train station.
Today's menu: Mozart's Magic Flute in a rather modern interpretation, originally produced by the Komische Oper Berlin. I didn't quite understand what to expect when my sister talked about singing combined with film animation, but it turned out to be a pretty much awesome performance by the Deutsche Oper am Rhein and definitely worth a visit.
Stairway to heaven
