A walk on the Rhein Promenade with friends, Dusseldorf

Together with our friends from Belgium, Koen and Kim, we walked alongside the Rhein Promenade in Dusseldorf. We were surprised of the strong current cargo boats have to fight to make their way upstream. The river is so strong and probably cold that landing up in the water would be very dangerous, maybe lethal.

There is a bicycle market, a carnival fair and many places to have a drink. It was still cold in the morning but the views on the river banks were very nice.

Samen met onze vrienden van België, Koen en Kim, wandelden we langs de Rijn Promenade in Düsseldorf. We waren verbaasd dat er zo veel stroming was waartegen de vrachtschepen moeten vechten om verder te varen. Als je hier in het koude sterke water zou vallen is het heel gevaarlijk, misschien wel dodelijk. 

Er was een fietsenmarkt, een kermis en vele plaatsen waar je iets kan drinken. Het was nog koud in de ochtend maar de zichten over de rivier waren heel mooi.

  2. this kind of reminds me of our boardwalk in New Jersey. Picture #10, the canal, is my favorite! The metal sculptures are very dark! You are both looking very good!
