German Art At Dusseldorf Old City Centre
Dusseldorf, Germany - September 2017

On a cycling tour of Europe, we were at Dusseldorf which is a nice city. We did a short ride to the old section of the city next to the Rhine to enjoy the riverside scenes and visit several old buildings there. Around the streets of the area and at the old buildings were some nice artwork.
