Düsseldorf might be an urban city, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t any amazing camping opportunities around the area to kick back, relax, and roast some Bratwurst! There are actually quite a few nestled in the woods and sitting along the water’s edge, why not give it a try this summer? 

Before you head off, you might need to stock up on a few camping supplies, am I right? Try shopping online at a store like OTTO.de or heading to one of my favorite sporting goods stores (basically the IKEA of sporting goods) – Decathlon.
