    The Golzheim Cemetery: A Park Reminiscent of a Horror Movie

    Since I've (re)discovered analogue photography, I surprise myself more often than not, walking aimlessly through my hometown of Dusseldorf. I don’t think I need to explain how your perception of your surroundings changes through the viewfinder. On one of my last trips a few weeks ago I, in the truest sense of the word, stumbled across one of Düsseldorf's significant treasures, the historic cemetery of Golzheim. With its ancient, weathered monuments and poplar-lined paths and trails, it offers visitors a sight reminiscent of a Hitchcock movie.

    Fancy a time out from the hectic urban life or maybe just a stunning view of the skyline? Some instant holiday-feeling without being too far away? The Rhine meadows might be the place for you.

    If you are just passing Oberbilker Markt via one of the main roads, you might not be aware that hiding behind all those fancy office buildings, there's a park.

    If you come to Düsseldorf, you'll probably want to see the Old Town. But when you're already there (and if the weather's only halfway decent) you should go down to the Rhine and stroll down the Rheinuferpromenade (Rhine Embankment Promenade).

    If you are interested in modern architecture, the Medienhafen („Media harbour“) in Düsseldorf is the place to go.
