Big sign

Dortmund U-Tower, November 2011
The Dortmunder U, on my way to work, through the window from my train (S-Bahn). It's an impressiv building with a big video installation. In Dortmund nothing really is unique, exapt the U. Some more posts with the U here.

From Wikipedia: The Dortmund U-Tower is a brewery building in the city of Dortmund, Germany. It was the first skyscraper of Dortmund, built in 1926-1927. The high-rise Union Brewery used this building for the fermentation and storage of their products. In 1994 the brewery and all its surrounding buildings were closed and demolished, only the Dortmund U-Tower was spared due to having landmark status. In January 2008 the Dortmund U-Tower was decided to be redeveloped as a flagship project for the "Ruhr 2010 - Cultural Capital of Europe".

Watch out

At the river Rhine, Köln - Cologne, August 2010
People from the canoe club will cross the way.
Clubs along the river are very hospitable. We used to spend the nights in our tent at the club area during our trip down the Rhine from Lake Constance to Duisburg, 700 km (435 miles) in our Canadian canoe.
