Did you know that Ratingen town is older than Dusseldorf? We chose to stay in Ratingen to have easy access to the Dusseldorf airport and the boat show for which we traveled to Germany.
My favourite meal of the day is breakfast. And what a lovely breakfast place we found!
We had no idea what was in Ratingen, so we just started aimlessly walking around in search of food. Good for us that we stumbled upon the Old Town.
There were many bakeries to get fresh pastries for breakfast or a snack.
The market square has been the place to buy goods since the middle of the 14th century.
A public bookcase in the middle of the Old Town. Have you seen those before? It’s a cabinet which can be freely to exchange books – such a great idea.
The Old Town is such a quaint place. Apparently it still looks the same as in the medieval times.
The Catholic church St. Peter and Paul is known for having three bells.
Konditorei-Café Jland-Vogt looked most inviting. We ended up having breakfast there twice.
Some tea, please.
How about an “Unser Klassiker” breakfast?
Or maybe “Fitness Frühstück”? Look at that huge bowl of muesli. I’m not sure if you can count that as Fitness..
What gorgeous cakes there would’ve been..
Our last morning in Ratingen was a Sunday. Unfortunately our trusty café wasn’t open. BackWerk was the only option. We did get some juice, bread, coffee and very friendly service. Haha, I don’t look that pleased with my bread.
I took a moment to admire the flowers and then it was time to drive to the airport again.
What is your favourite meal of the day? Do you like having breakfast in cafés or would you rather enjoy it at home?
