To the Hauptbahnhof
While walking to the Hauptbahnhof (main station) in Essen I saw that perfect alignment of the teletower at the far distance.
No bikes please
no bikes please. While Essen invests a lot in so called Schnellradwege (far distant bicycle roads) the don't do anything for bicycles in the city…
The pavement from Essen Ostviertel to the main station is (was?) full of waste. People threw everything just away.
