An "Autumn" Day in Düsseldorf

Though the summer must have been terrible here in Europe, at least that is what EVERYONE has been saying, this weekend is promising to be absolutely gorgeous just in time for Oktoberfest. So in honor of Oktoberfest, I had Leberkäs' and Brez'n with the traditional Düsseldorf Altbier (old beer). This was at "Bastian's" in the Altstadt for our celebratory meal for finding our house. I apologize that everyone had their mouths full.
 Sophie enjoyed a "Princess Plate" full of fresh bread rolls, jam, Nutella, and Gummibears (No, I didn't steal one of her Gummibears bags, I'm just rationing them.) We also stopped at the tourist information bureau to gather plenty of reading material on what to do in D-dorf.

 I just had to take a picture of this bread counter! Yummy!
 From the Golden Gate to the Rheinbrücke - could that be our container?
 Sophie in front of another Sleeping Beauty Castle (i.e. the city hall).
It is as if this Dutch band played just for our joyous occasion in D-dorf today. Sophie did not want to leave.
