Düsseldorf was a place I randomly found myself in mid-December en route back to the USA since I was flying Air Berlin and it happens to be their second largest hub. Although a little bummed that I wasn’t getting laid over in Berlin… it actually turned out to be quite an enjoyable two-day stopover.

In between living it up in one of Germany’s most forward-thinking hotels and checking out the city’s extravagant Christmas markets, I found great pleasure in taking leisurely strolls around town with nothing else but the clothes on my back, music in my ears and an iPhone in my hand. Unbeknownst to me, Düsseldorf is one hell of a place for modern architecture – something that I am by no means a connoisseur of, but a subject I do love photographing. And dressing up in apps apparently.

Meet Düsseldorf in December – playground for modern architects, city of angry trees, and Christmas market extraordinaire.

Oh my Gehry
