Gelsenkirchen. Düsseldorf. Köln
Martie 27, 2008
In my trip in Germany I visited 3 big cities: Gelsenkirchen, Dusseldorf and Koln. In each city the weather wasn’t so friendly. We didn’t pay to much attention on this bad weather and we tried to enjoy every moment in each place.
Gelsenkirchen is looking for a new image.
In this place I came back to rest and sleep. I had the chance to stay to some friends of mine. In the past, Gelsenkirchen used to be known „city of a thousand fires” for the flames of mine gasses. It was the most important coal mining town in Europe. Today in Gelsenkirchen there are no mines any more and Gelsenkirchen is searching for a new image. There no many things to see in Gelsenkirchen, but it’s a very nice place to stay and live. Is has all the ingredients: clean, peacefull place, nice pubs and restaurants, etc.
Dusseldorf, the best place for shopping and tasting a beer.
Düsseldorf is a city where everything is close together: just near the well known shopping street, the „ Altstadt” the old quarter of the city, you can also find more than 260 pubs and home-brew taverns, a place witch is well known as “the longest bar in the world”.If you want to see a great view of the city, you can you in the top of the light house.
Köln – Dom is an important World Heritage Site.
It is one of the oldest cities in Germany. Köln is known as an important media centre. Several radio and television stations are based in the city. Köln is well-known for its beer, called Kolsch . Was it is incredible is that at the end of the Second War World, 90% of the city was complete destroyed. It took some time to rebuild the city, but I have to admit that I really admire what they have done with the city. It’s a complete new city. The most important place to visit, it’s of course, the famous Dom. Construction of the Gothic church began in 1248 and took, with interruptions, until 1880 to complete – a period of over six hundred years. This famous cathedral described by UNESCO as an „exceptional work of human creative genius”. This building is one of the most important World Heritage Site.
