Duesseldorf | Urdenbacher Kaempe – Nature Reserve in the South

With the last six months being physically and mentally a complete up and down and me commuting back and forth between Munich and Duesseldorf in between flights, it was no wonder that my mind and body were both running on low energy levels.

In other words, I felt that the city had no soul, no origin. So I was glad to discover during my last trip, that there still are relics of those original neighborhoods (hutongs) which I fell in love with in Beijing already. Continue reading
