With your NRW-Ticket you´re allowed, using every public service vehicle like busses, subways, interurban-trains and trams in all cities in NRW! It´s also possible to take trains beginning with the letters RE or RB, followed by a number like for example the RE1 or RB48 (a list of all RE´s and RB´s is listed below). These trains are much faster than the usual urban railways and connect the different cities and areas in North Rhine-Westphalia.
The district Marxloh is deemed to be a little bit ill-reputed. In some areas it´s legitimate but definitely not in the Weseler Straße! To tell the truth, the district is not the Highlight of Duisburg but if you´re living anyway in the City, it´s interesting to visit this street one or two times.
A trip to Paris is always a good idea. If you should decide to visit the „city of love“ there are a few sights you just can’t miss. Depending on what you want to see you will need more or less time. If you want to see all the presented sights below (or even more) you should at least stay for three days or longer. Even though the subway system called „Metro“ gets you nearly anywhere within a few minutes waiting lines for the most popular sights are sometimes very long.
The app is from the Deutsche Bahn, the german train company. An alternative would be “VRR App”.
Some free spots which you can visit if you get bored and you want to get out of the hotel. These spots are nice to see for people who like to go for a walk or take some nice pictures at night, when the sights are lighted in different colors.
You can reach every destination in North Rhine-Westphalia by public transportation. Especially in the Ruhrgebiet the railway network is very dense. But be aware that the “Deutsche Bahn” is usually late. So if you have appointments, plan some extra time for travelling.
Cologne (in German „Köln“) is with more than one million citizens the largest city in North Rhine-Westphalia (Federal state of Germany) and the 4th largest city in Germany. It was founded more than 2000 Years ago by the Romans and is located at the river Rhine.
In addition to public transportation, you can easily reach your destination by taxi. You will not find as many taxis on the streets as in other major cities in the world, but it is still very convenient to use taxis in Germany.
Amsterdam is the capital of the Netherlands as well as the most populated city with about 800.000 residents. It is known as one of the most colorful and open-minded cities in Europe and famous for its cyclists, canals, multicultural community and street culture.
