Book­lovers unite!

On three week­ends this year, the Rheinufer Prom­en­ade is solely ded­ic­ated to the book­worms amongst us. What bet­ter way is there to en­joy a week­end day than brows­ing through cen­tur­ies of lit­er­at­ure whilst strolling along the pic­tur­esque Rhine?

Dates:  March 30-31, Ju­ly 27-28, Septem­ber 21-22

11am-7pm

About 60 book­sellers, second-hand book­shops and col­lect­ors gath­er from the en­tire re­gion to provide a pot­pourri of unique, long-lost fa­vor­ites, bar­gains and old and new books for young and old alike in many dif­fer­ent lan­guages. Be­side the whole ar­ray of books, a wide range of games, old maps, post­cards and il­lus­trated books are wait­ing to change their own­ers as well. Norbert Schulte cre­ates a fit­ting mood with melod­ic pi­ano sounds and ?La Mais­on de Bac­chus? of­fers French culin­ary high­lights. A free ser­vice to have your own books eval­u­ated is offered as well.

Take in the unique scent of second-hand books, meet like-minded people and don?t for­get your tote bag to bring home all the great bar­gains you made!

This event is also a great op­por­tun­ity to check out sur­round­ing at­trac­tions. Have a look at the KIT to ex­per­i­ence its latest ex­hib­i­tions un­der­ground. Walk around the Alt­stadt for food and drinks or fur­ther shop­ping or en­joy a drink with a view at the Kasse­mat­ten. From there, take one of the many reg­u­lar cruises with the Köln-Düs­sel­dor­fer or the Weiße Flotte. Everything is in the vi­cin­ity of the book mile.
