proud taxpayer, and twice a day!

Five years ago the big holes were already there, in the middle of Dusseldorf city center, and last year they were closed. The new underground, “die Wehrhahn Linie” was inaugurated.

This was part of an integrated project which included subterranean speedways, the tearing down of the Tausendfüβler viaduct as well. The new stations are among the most spectacular I’ve seen so far around the world, with super-high ceilings, some have even natural light filtering through an ingenious system. And art.

Have a look at this super-interesting video…among various big machines, it shows starting at minute 07:29, Tuborine, the tunnel-beast which has been powerfully – yet delicately – digging thru Dusseldorf city center over the past 5 years…fascinating machine, and fascinating operations (and tough jobs!).

MeinMann and love are absolute junkies when it comes to big infrastructure works…

DSS: Dusseldorfer Space Station

P1200076

Last night I stepped out of my Soyuz, the U83, into the orbiting DSS….or at least, this was the feeling when I alighted from my train to Benrather Strasse U-bahn station. What a feast! My taxpayer heart is throbbing…so much Vorsprung durch Technik is a dream! Love the steel, glass and concrete…

Isn’t this service door mind-blowing?!

P1200069

Ah this is the nec plus ultra of the typical “well-done German work”…

P1200071

I almost tripped on the staircase! I was too busy taking pics!

P1200077

Every station is different…and I have decided to discover them slowly by slowly…

It feels very Paco Rabanne!

Dusseldorf la Bella

1024px-Düsseldorf_Stich_1850Those were the times when Johannes Brahms hanged out with Clara and Robert Schumann….now listening to a magnificient Brahms Symphonie Nr. 3 Op.90 – Wiener Philarmoniker, September 2015 Bucharest via Euroradio. This is the European culture of which we should be even more proud…
