Does anybody know where are the good spots in Dusseldorf (or nearby) for taking landscape, people or other outdoor photography subjects. I'm leaving for Dusseldorf next week and try to manage to have 1 day for photo shoot.

The Eurovision Song Contest is there now and next week. Should present lots of people opportunities.

Hi, I`m living in Duesseldorf. A good Place is the Architetcture in the Media Harbour. Or the Rhein-Promenade behind the Old Town Center in the middle of the city. Unfortunately we have actually a lot of construction sites. We are getting a new underground line. Maybe the huge construction sites are interesting for you. Landscape in the near of duesseldorf is mostly acres with useful plants. An recreation area is a.e. the Unterbacher lake with a lot of forest surrounding the area. If you wish to see the ruins of an old castle you should make a trip to Kaiserswerth. There is a nice center with old buildings and a good sight on the Rhein at the bank.

Regards

I would say sunrise/set can be captured good at the rhein promenade in the town center. You will have nice urban motives at this place,

It's slightly cropped. Not worth visiting that place, it's much less impressing without Photoshop :D.

Thanks, Galatia. Left some comments. Photos would be easier to find if you had a portfolio :)
