DJH Düsseldorf: Accommodations For Budget Friendly Friends

By on March 3rd, 2016

I’ve spent a two nights stay in the Landesverband Rheinland/DJH Düsseldorf so that you can have some great tips on places to stay for your budget friendly friends.

Staff at the DJH Düsseldorf

All of the staff are very friendly and extremely helpful. I bugged them on more than one occasion with WIFI access, parking information and luggage storage. None of the staff were ever difficult and they all answered my questions in perfect English which was incredible for me (especially when I was too tired to attempt to speak German).

Room Accommodations 

The room was spacious. I was in a 4 bedroom dorm room in which I had all for myself. The toilet and shower room were separate which makes it easy when you’re splitting the room with 4 others.

Food and Drinks

I skipped breakfast the first morning not because I wanted to but simply because I was half asleep waking up in the morning and had no idea that there was a breakfast buffet included. Of course once I figured it out the second morning, I took great advantage of all the wonderful warm crispy buns and toppings! Breakfast included sandwiches, toppings, yogurt, cereal and fruit.

Common Area at the DJH Düsseldorf

Which common area? They have multiple smaller common areas across the hostel rather than one large one. You have the option to sit in many common spots across the yard outside, and there are also a few tables in the bar area and a couple more in front of their television set. I spent a good few hours here working on my blog on the last day and have no complaints!

Location of Accommodations 

The location of this hostel is by far my favourite thus far. Through my European journey, I have never has such a key location! Although it is not in the city centre, it is on the opposite side of the Rhine River, known as the ‘rich side of town’ or Dusseldorf’s ‘green city’. If you’ve read my blogs before, you know I love being in green cities! This weekend was also the last weekend of the summer amusement park and/or carnival which was conveniently located just a step away from the hostel location. The only difficult thing about the location is that since it is located away from the heart of the city, it is a little bit more difficult to get into town to do some sight seeing. You have the option of taking a bus that takes a little longer than expected, or you can walk across the Rhine River on the bridge which is still a 15 minute walk to the tram which takes you to the city centre. If you don’t mind a little walk, this location will be perfect for you as well.

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.
