  Media Harbour, Dusseldorf
by antistar

Dusseldorf's Media Harbour, or Media Port depending on the translation, is easily my favourite part of the city. It has so many cool buildings, designed by great architects such as Frank Gehry, Steven Holl and David Chipperfield, and it sits under the shadow of the imposing Rheintower. There are also many lower profile buildings, both old and new, that add to the effect, as well as a number of bars, cafes and even a beach to lie on in the summer. Despite all the development, however, the Media Harbour just didn't feel alive. While the Kö was packed with holiday shoppers on a fine sunny winter's day, the Media Harbour appeared to be closed down, and as quiet as a small town on a rainy Sunday morning. This meant I had the whole place to myself, which was great, but it felt like such a shame that the place wasn't getting as much love as it should.

Directions: Walk along the Rheinuferpromenade to the Rheinturm and keep on going.
