Day Trip to Schloss Benrath

1 July 2014

[You can watch the vlog version here if it tickles your fancy]

On our second full day in Dusseldorf we decided to try our luck with the public transport, so headed out to Schloss Benrath to have a lunch and a walk around the gardens.

After embarrassingly missing the first tram we took the next one that came to the Schloss. It took us about 20 minutes by the S-Bahn to get there and we were greeted by cute pink buildings and hungry stomachs.

We headed to the cafe for lunch, I had a broccoli soup and a caramel latte (my first, in quite a few days). Then Moana and I had a long walk around the grounds and found ourselves down by the river where we sat down for a snack of chips, bread and cheese.

In the late afternoon we headed back into the city centre. We then had a walk around the Altstdat (the old part of Dusseldorf) and along the Ko (the street where all the high end brands are). We then look for somwhere to stop for dinner. We found a place called Vapiano which was kind of like “Flunch” in France, but pretty much all Italian food. I had a seafood salad and a tiramisu for dessert.

Overall a very relaxing and lovely day. The Schloss didn’t really meet my expectations (maybe after the lavishness of the chateaux in Paris,) but it was still lovely to have a nice stroll through the gardens.
