St. Martin’s Day in Dusseldorf

Der erste Feiertag in Deutschland ist das St.Martinsfest, welches traditionell erst am 11. November stattfindet, jedoch schon am Abend des 10.Novembers gefeiert wird.

The Gentlemen’s Chocolate Cocktail At The Capella Bar

Yesterday, when I was strolling through the shopping streets of Dusseldorf and a chilly breeze hit my face, I had to admit that Autumn has finally arrived.
