Thanks mate

I've still got 2 or 3 more pics of Rotterdam which I'm going to post after the Düsseldorf pics.

Düsseldorf

I arrived in the city at ~2 pm, the weather was quite okay and I took a few shots from the famous TV tower.

These pics show the city centre:







The GAP 15 (somehow being mantled) and LVA buildings:



I walked through this small park to get from the GAP 15 building to the TV tower:



It was kind of surprising for me to see animals like these in the small park's lake:





TV tower vicinity:

Nice photos!
Looks like a typical German "large" city: amazing pre-war architecture, horrible post-war architecture and good modern architecture since the last 20 years!

Thanks!

I strongly agree to what you said, although I think Düsseldorf has a smaller amount of the 2nd category than most other cities in the area (of similar size). But it's no comparision to cities which are still being dominated by pre-war house rows like The Hague (or the city centre of your own hometown ). Nonetheless I think Düsseldorf offers a very nice atmosphere and has some stunning architecture in parts.


Some more Düsseldorf pictures

A good amount of cars on that ship:

Great pictures. When I look at those modern Dutch buildings, I always consider them as tipically Dutch. Even in modern architecture the Dutch succeed to stand out.

Thanks!

Yes, the Altstadt of Düsseldorf has some nice historical buidings and great atmosphere, but during this small trip I didn't have the time to visit it also, unfortunately.


Here are the last 3 bonus pics of Rotterdam I have:
