Landtag of North Rhine-Westphalia & the Rheinturm

Here’s my contribution to Ailsa’s travel theme of the week: curves. While visiting family in Germany, my cousin Sabine took me to the top of the Rheinturm, Dusseldorf’s tallest structure.

The view from the top is fabulous. You can catch an aerial perspective of the famous Gehry Buildings, or you can watch traffic on the Rhine River and bridge below. Although if you’re afraid of heights, you may have difficulty here…

So what does all of this have to do with curves? Check out the curvaceous roofs of the North-Rhine Westphalia Landtag complex, which houses the government offices for the area.

After you’re finished with the view from the top of the Rheinturm, you can stroll along the river or head for a nearby shopping district.
