In exactly seven days the 56th Eurovision Song Contest will open its doors to the public. Then Düsseldorf will be in the focus of the international media for entire two weeks. The city is prepared already like no other city. There are flags in the railway station and the entire city; banners with “Welcome” and “Feel your heart beat” are highly visible throughout the city. The arena itself looks like a high security district with a well kept secret, how it will look inside. The team of eurovisionlive has already taken an exclusive look in the city and the arena to give you the first impressions of this friendly city. There are heaps of restaurants, cafés and breweries, short ways to the major attractions, a wonderful promenade along the Rhine River and a great hospitality of the citizens of Düsseldorf. Come and have a look at the Düsseldorf way of life!

About me: Due to the fact that my parents are musicians, I have a gained a great enthusiasm for music. Since 1979 my interest in the Eurovision Song Contest has grown enormously. My first ESC I joined was in Dublin 1995. Six years later I founded the website eurovisionlive.com in the year 2001. The most fascinating part for me is the original idea of the Eurovision Song Contest – the peaceful contest of the European countries. I am very happy that I have the chance to contribute my little part for the greatest music show in the world.
