While staying in Cologne we took a day trip to Dusseldorf to meet some friends. We went to a really nice restaurant, the Meerbar, with a terrace and a great view to the Rhine river. The fascinating deconstructuvist Frank Gehry building is directly next to it and worth seeing. As our nappy nomad was still to small to sit in a children’s chair, we used the car seat that we just put on a normal chair at the table. That worked really well!
Taking a walk on the Rhine promenade from the Meerbar is a must! You will enjoy really nice views. However, I recommend to avoid the old town as it gets very busy with lots of bachelors’s parties.
