By on May 4th, 2016

Today we have Britta Beumers from Genussgier travel blog sharing her favorite places around the district (and a little bit beyond into the Altstadt since you’re so close anyway). If there is anything you’d like to add to the list, be sure to leave your comments in the comment box below!

Food in Derendorf

  • Butze: Nice vegan pub with friendly staff, small and simple but good and affordable menu.
  • Spoerl Fabrik: Lovely restaurant at the old Spoerl factory which offers everything from breakfast to dinner. The owner was the father of the author Heinrich Spoerl who is famous in Germany for his book “Die Feuerzangenbowle” which screen adaptions is still even more popular.
  • Gattogiallo: Nice little café close to the new Fachhochschule. It offers products from Calabria and Lucania as well as lunch and on Saturday also breakfast.
  • Gingerboy: A restaurant bar and lounge serving up great fresh foods inspired by the Chinese culture.

Sights in Derendorf

  • The new Fachhochschule: This summer the technical college move next to the station Derendorf S and will change the face and atmosphere of the district.
  • Platz der IdeenWhile this might not be a ‘sight’ in particular, it’s a great place to start your exploration around Derendorf. This location has a map of all parking spots, buses, hotels, places to eat and ATMs you can find around the city.
  • AMD Akademie Mode & Design: If you’re into fashion and design, this is a neat school who has held some neat events in the past including a “fair fashion” event teaching people to swap clothing or buy good quality things.

Shops in Derendorf

  • Olive: Lovely little shop run by an even more lovely owner. She offers different products like oils, spices, dishes, bags, chocolate and also every day another cake.
  • Kaufland: One of the biggest in the city and the best place to get everything you need in one shop!
  • Underwater No.1If you’re a fan of diving, this place is quite a unique shop to have in the center of a town with no where to dive. Certainly worth a browse!

Nature in Derendorf

  • Rheinpark Golzheim: Crowded in summertime but as I told you several times Düsseldorfer love to be close to the Rhine. Therefore you find people sunbathing, playing soccer, doing BBQ etc. here when the weather is nice.
  • Nordfriedhof: Sounds a little morbid but this huge cemetery in the North is nice alternative for a walk as this area doesn’t offer that much green.
  • Kolpingplatz: Little square park in Pempelfort with playground, water playground, table tennis and a lot of green. There’s also a market on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
  • Frankenplatz: While just a small little nature spot, it’s in the middle of the city and is a great place for children to play.

Im Oktober 2017 ist es soweit -„Michael Jackson – The Symphony Experience“ kommt wieder auf die Bühne!

Events und Angebote Düsseldorf ist nicht der Veranstalter der hier beschriebenen Veranstaltung, sondern vermittelt lediglich den Zugang zu Tickets.

Michael Jackson gilt als größter Popstar aller Zeiten – und noch nie hat jemand live seine Musik mit Klassik vermengt. Noch nie? Doch: Im Juni 2016 stieg in der Berliner Mercedes-Benz-Arena zum ersten Mal die Show mit dem Titel „Michael Jackson – The Symphony Experience“. Mit einem Orchester aus 70 Musikern und einem Dutzend Sängern feierte das spektakuläre Event seine Premiere. Rund 4.000 Besucher strömten in die Arena und sahen eine zweistündige Show mit 22 Hits aus der Feder von Michael Jackson – umgesetzt als Mix aus Pop und Klassik. Mit dabei, sind die größten Chart-Erfolge „Heal the World“, „Thriller“, „Man in the Mirror“, „Billie Jean“, „Beat it“ und viele mehr.

Bereits bei der Premiere in Berlin war schnell klar: Das ist zu gut, um es nur ein einziges Mal auf der Bühne zu haben und dann in der Versenkung verschwinden zu lassen. Michael Jackson und Klassik, das passt. „Es war ein Abend voller Zauber“, fasst Organisator Sebastiao Pembele zusammen und drückt damit genau das aus, was die Besucher fühlten.

Extra für die Shows kommt erneut das Isaiah Symphony Orchestra zusammen, das sich im Rahmen der ersten „Michael Jackson – The Symphony Experience“ gefunden und gegründet hat. Auch großartige Sänger werden dabei sein. Bisher haben die Soul-Sänger Mic Donet und Rino Galiano zugesagt, eine Sängerin soll noch dazu kommen. Es ist aber keine Las-Vegas-Show, keine Imitation.
