Trip Report A Day of Düsseldorf and Cologne

Jump to last reply

Düsseldorf is not a famous tourist spot. It is the capital of North Rhine-Westphalia and it is a major city in the metropolitan with over 11 million population.

Geographically, it is very close to the Benelux countries – Belgium, Netherlands and Luxemburg. If you love architecture, Neuer Zollhof (The New Zollhof) is located right by the Media Harbour in the city center – it is a building complex designed by the world-renowned architect, Frank O. Gehry, the unique curves are easy to distinguish. Other than that, it is a typical clean, neat and tidy German city that you could enjoy ~

Most people would rather visit Cologne. It is only 23 mins away by train, and the ginormous Cologne Cathedral is right outside the train station. It is the tallest Roman Catholic cathedral in the world, and also the most visited German landmark (more than the Neuschwanstein Castle and Brandenburg Gate, owing to its convenient access I guess).

The other famous products in the city, which is quite obvious, is “Cologne” itself! The 4711 “Eau de Cologne” packed in tiffany blue wrappings and gold stamp printing, is the most iconic brand that comes with different sizes. They have tiny bottles of 4711 cologne which is a perfect souvenir for your friend and loved ones ~
