The zoo quarter in Düsseldorf has his name from the old zoo who was destroyed in the second world war. Now there is only a parc left. I have no idea how often I passed the train stop Düsseldorf zoo until I realized that there's no zoo in town!
The name cames traditional from a zoo who had been there years befor. It started in 1876, motivated by the zoologist and animal author Alfred Brehm, who gave the name to the street Brehmstrasse. In the second world war, in the year 1943, the zoo was destroyed. 1951 the area was rebuilt to the zoo park that exists today, but which is only a park.
The zoo quarter is located in the area of “Düsseldorf-Düsseltal:”http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/D%C3%BCsseldorf-D%C3%BCsseltal It is for people who have a bit more money to pay their rent or to buy a flat directly. It has a good transport connection to trains, trams and busses. Last time I had been in the zoo quarter of Düsseldorf, it was very cold an snowy. Here a few winter shoots for you!
