Last chance to see

The artificial beach was only meant to last for a week – until this weekend. Last chance to sit down in the sand, dip your toes into the river and have a cocktail from the temporary bar nearby. Enjoy your weekend, everyone!


More summer

What a gorgeus sunday it is. Perfect day for the second “Stadt an den Fluss” (move the city towards the river) event. It’s meant to publicise the mayor’s plan to build a tunnel that’s supposed to free the river banks from car traffic. Lots of attractions along the old town embankment, with an artifical beach around Alte Brücke surely the highlight. Just a shame that this is not what it would be like once the ridiculously expensive tunnel is built. You can’t close the road for all kinds of traffic, even with the tunnel. That’s just a one-off each year.

School holidays have started, but with the weather being rather April-like, the swimming pool will be even more empty than in this picture.
