I left the hotel on foot for a little morning run/jog/walk/stroll. I hit the MedienHafen to see first hand the harbor architecture designed by world-renowned architects such as Frank O. Gehry, David Chipperfield, Joe Coenen, Steven Holl and Claude Vasconithe. My favorites are the new ‘Zollhof’ by Frank O. Gehry and the Roggendorf Haus covered with 29 whimsical plastic climbing men.
Although it was nearly summer, it was a cool day and it was fairly early in the morning, so there was a certain quiet to my jog around Düsseldorf.
I really enjoyed seeing the sights, the buildings, the statues and ambiance of Düsseldorf. I kind of wished I had another day so I could see more, but this was an absolutely excellent start.
