Discoveries in the urban jungle

Autor: Julia Bauer

An increasing number of travellers are interested in enjoying a very high degree of individuality when making city trips, and having experiences away from the beaten track. We have compiled 10 special attractions for visitors wanting to make new discoveries in cities in North Rhine-Westphalia, in #urbanana.

 

  • Go down underground! The artistic secrets of the brand new Wehrhahn line in Düsseldorf (tube) are on direct display in the underground tunnel:www.wehrhahnlinie-duesseldorf.de
  • Whether it’s a tour of the “Büdchen” kiosks or urban art in Ehrenfeld and the Belgian Quarter you’re interested in, there are several unusual guided tours on offer as part of the Cologne #urbanCGN: https://blog.koelntourismus.de/en/
  • Culinary-cultural On a guided culinary tour, visitors are taken through exciting areas in the Ruhr region, as well as in Düsseldorf and Cologne:
