There is no Frigate like a Book
To take us Lands away,
Nor any Coursers like a Page
Of prancing Poetry –
This Traverse may the poorest take
Without oppress of Toll –
How frugal is the Chariot
That bears a Human soul.

Emily Dickinson: “There is no Frigate like a Book”.

An effort to save summer, coming autumn.

pressedflower

Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness,
   Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun;
Conspiring with him how to load and bless
   With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eves run;
To bend with apples the moss’d cottage-trees,
   And fill all fruit with ripeness to the core;
      To swell the gourd, and plump the hazel shells
   With a sweet kernel; to set budding more,
And still more, later flowers for the bees,
Until they think warm days will never cease,
      For summer has o’er-brimm’d their clammy cells…
~from the poem “To Autumn” by J.Keats ~

Düsseldorf is a great city that can be easy reachable by bus, train or plane from multiple cities in Europe, that makes it a good weekend getaway city trip.

So without further due, let’s see what’s my top 3 things to do in Düsseldorf:

Window shopping at the Königsallee, where you could gawk at luxury brand showrooms and at the same time enjoy walking along side the beautiful Düsseldorf canal.

Rheinturm or The Rhine Tower, to get a good glimpse of the city own vibes you could go to this tower and have a “look around” Düsseldorf while drinking your favorite beverage.

Düsseldorf‘s Rhine embankment promenade, This is the literally should be one of the highlights of your visit in Dusseldorf. River view  dining, art gazing at The Kunst im Tunnel or just take a romantic stroll and enjoy the picturesque view.
