Düssel is a small river of only about 40 kilometres. Between spring and mouth the little river meanders through a world-famous valley: Neanderthal. People settle at the river’s mouth on the banks of the river Rhine since about 1800 B.C. But Düsseldorf was still a village when it got city rights in 1288. And this is what the name means: village upon Düssel.
But history or the city are not the reason why I gave this blog the name „Düssel-Post“. It is simply because I live near the Düssel and send my reports from the banks of this small river.
