From the port to high technology
Dusseldorf is a charming city in the west of Germany. It is known for its carnivals and for its beer. The Altstadt (Old Town), the Rheinturm as well as the River Walk on the banks of the Rhine, are one of the main attractions of the city.
As important as the historic buildings of the Altstadt is the MedienHafen, an excellent example of revitalization of a port area that had been shelved for some time. In this area are various works of contemporary architecture by renowned architects including Frank O. Gehry, Claude Vasconi, Joe Coenen, David Chipperfield, and Steven Holl. Along with these new structures, many historic warehouse buildings have been renovated to become state-of-the-art offices for communication media companies and avant-garde design.
