Great modern architecture in the Medienhafen, Düsseldorf

In the port you find many sail boats and yachts. Old factory buildings get a new destination or are replaced by modern offices, hotels and restaurants. We tried an Italian snack in one of the trendy restaurants.

The first white and silver buildings on our pictures are curved and from the capable hands of the world famous American architect Frank Gehry. The shiny silver apartments are our favorite, it is extreme and flashy. Other buildings are also super: special shapes, colored glass facades and little art men climbing walls. To conclude this port has become one of the best and modern districts of Dusseldorf.

In de haven vind je vele zeilbootjes en jachten. Oude fabrieksgebouwen krijgen een nieuwe bestemming of worden vervangen door moderne kantoren, hotels of restaurants. Wij aten een kleine snack bij een trendy Italiaans restaurant. 

De eerste witte en zilveren bebouwen op onze foto’s hebben een gebogen gevel en werden ontworpen door de wereldberoemde Amerikaanse architect Frank Gehry. De glimmende zilveren appartementen zijn onze favorieten, we houden van extreem en flashy. Andere gebouwen zijn ook super: speciale vormen, gekleurde glazen gevels, kleine kunstmannetjes die muren beklimmen. Dit is één van de beste en modernste wijken van Düsseldorf.

  1. Oh my goodness, I have never seen anything like these! For sure you would never get bored living here. They are fun and whimsical. I like them better than the old brick plain buildings that can look like prisons.

  2. prachtig om te zien de metamorfoses van de steden.

  3. heel originele architectuur

    bij deze foto's zou ik niet meteen aan Düsseldorf gedacht hebben

    of hoe een stad verandert


  4. Beautiful palce and you shared good information about that place. Buildings are looking so awesome and stunning photos you shared.

  5. I like those colorful statues climbing the building. The name Dusseldorf sounds so familiar to me, my father might have been stationed there when he served in the Navy. Something from my father's serving, it was before I was born.
