On Friday, 20 May, we will go on an excursion to Düsseldorf to the Filmmuseum followed by a pub crawl through Düsseldorf’s old town!
Düsseldorf is the capital of North Rhine-Westphalia and has many special features worth visiting!
This time we’re going to the Filmmuseum, which offers insights into the world of film, from its beginnings to the present day, in its permanent exhibition spread over 2,200 square metres and four floors. It is an interactive museum and has its own cinema, the Black Box.
The museum also offers a virtual tour, so if anyone is curious, they can get an impression of the location and exhibitions in advance!
Admission is €2.50, so please bring your student card for this reduced price. Admission is free on Fridays for students under 21. Make sure you get one of the limited places if you want to come! Registration should be done by 18 May at the latest so that we can plan better. To go to the museum we are meeting at the Wuppertal Central station at 3 p.m. (in front of the piano).
After the museum, you can enjoy a beer or three with us in the famous old town of Düsseldorf. The Old Town in Düsseldorf is a popular neighbourhood where there is always a lot going on. Düsseldorf is famous for its home-brewed Altbier (Old Beer) from the city’s breweries; a total of six different Altbiers are brewed there. Around 260 pubs and bars can be found in the half square kilometre that is the Old Town. Düsseldorf calls this string of bars The Longest Counter in the World. Many pubs also offer something to eat, so you don’t have to worry about that but you should bring cash with you, as many bars don’t accept card payments.
You can register for the pub tour here, as places are limited as well. We’re meeting in front of the McDonald’s at the Heinrich-Heine-Allee station in Düsseldorf at 7 p.m.
We are very much looking forward to it and it will be worth coming along. Please register for both events if you want to come to both. Otherwise, you can of course also just come to one of the events.
