  • ...ist not a bad time for Düsseldorf's old town. We were a bit on the Bolker Street and went in between in the Sub. Nice Club, but not quite my music. Then a flatbread with chicken of the Lebanese, which was however not particularly recommended - because the classic roast pork buns would have been probably better. Parked for 5 euros in the art collection. Beautiful evening.
