Return to Short Breaks
The Tour de France had moved on to
Belgium and Luxembourg, and we spent our last day in this excellent city
wandering the sites and eating cake.
We were pleased with the hotel and
its attitude, it
had a quirky Japanese boutique feel to it.
Breakfast was very pleasant including one of my favourites, honey still in
... and one I was less tempted by... raw minced pork..
Japanese Lucky Cat in the room...
Miche doing her lucky cat...
It's almost as though they knew that Miche
would be staying in the room...
There were plenty of things to muck around with
All hotels should have
stylised rabbit seating...
A mouse, Miche &
a gong of course...
Site of the former
Kraftwerk Kling Klang Studios
Looking at the internet,
I think they get a lot of people checking it out...
In typical Kraftwerk style, it's just a very
functional and plain building and no longer anything to do with Kraftwerk...
Miche in Königsallee,
the fanciest of Düsseldorf's shopping streets...
St Lambertus Church
with its crooked spire...
The rather unusual and
Miche next to the
rather jollier cartwheeling boys statue (Radschläger), now adopted as
one of Düsseldorf's emblems...
As it was fast
approaching time for us to say 'auf wiedersehen' to Düsseldorf, an
homage to Auf Wiedersehen Pet in a menswear shop...
