Carpatair Destinations: Düsseldorf – Always top of the list. Part 1

 Düsseldorf city

Düsseldorf is a city of the superlative, in both Germany and the world. There are practically no lists of the world’s best cities that do not include Düsseldorf. The famous Forbes list placed it on the fourth position, above all other German cities, in terms of financial power and quality of life. Perhaps that is why designers who are famous all over the world open luxury retail stores over here. Düsseldorf could even be considered Germany’s Capital of Fashion. There is a whole boulevard here dedicated exclusively to renowned designer shops. The boulevard is named Konigsallee – King’s Avenue, but locals also call it the “Shopping Mile”. Brand after brand, one boutique after another, you can find them all here, lined up along a statute mile. The alley is bordered by over 200 trees, a reflection of the locals’ passion for nature. The economic crisis has not had too much of an impact on Düsseldorf. In 2010, the Mercer agency ordered a survey regarding the quality of life in some of the world’s major cities during the crisis. Düsseldorf again made the list, as it is the German city with the highest quality of life. As a matter of fact, it ranks number six in the world and number three in Europe. The only European cities ranked higher are Vienna and Zurich. Unsurprisingly, two other German cities follow Düsseldorf, with an equal number of points: Munich and Frankfurt. The city is also high on the European list of cities with the best infrastructure. read more…

Porto: the old city

Although it is sometimes in the shadow of the more famous Lisbon, the second largest city of Portugal deserves more. Maybe it does not have the most amazing monuments on the continent, but the natural setting, the bridges, the sometimes crumbling buildings and its bohemian atmosphere makes Porto to special ! A… and not forget the famous Porto wine. That would really make you love the city :). read more…
