Düsseldorf Expat Meetup July BBQ

  • Jul 10, 2011 · 2:00 PM
  • Rheinpark

Hello everybody!
I hope you are enjoying the summer in Düsseldorf , despite a promising start it seems the usual changeable weather is here again, sunshine, rain and wind all in the same day, and sometimes even at the same time. We live in hope of a continuous sunny spell, especially on Sunday 10th July, that’s the date of our first Meet up BBQ this year!

Following the success and positive feedback from the BBQs we held last year we would like to hold a few more this year, in July, August and hopefully September too! Did I already mention we live in hope of nice weather?!

So the first will be on Sunday 10th July in the Rheinpark The Rheinpark is a very popular and well known park in Düsseldorf , however if you are not sure where it is, it is within walking distance of the Altstadt or can be reached using the U-Bahn with U78 or U79. The BBQ will be near Homberger strasse. The nearest stop is Kennedydam. A map has been uploaded to the photos section in this group, or simply goes to Google maps and take a look.

Of course, since it is an outdoor event we are dependent on the weather. We will keep you updated on the situation but if it has to be postponed due to bad weather then we will try once again, possibly the following week; however we will keep you informed, so please check your email, or the Facebook or Meetup websites nearer the time.

We ask you to bring food and drinks, and if possible a BBQ grill if you have one. We will provide a few BBQ grills but if you are able to provide your own it would help greatly, it also means you won't have to wait too long for your food to be cooked!

As this is a public park we would also be grateful if you could be considerate about the rubbish. It would help us enormously if you would please take care of any waste food, bottles & packaging and dispose them in the bags we will provide. It is a lovely park and we would like to leave it as clean & tidy as when we arrived so that other people can continue to enjoy this lovely spot.

We will be sending you another email nearer the date with any necessary updates. For now I hope you will pencil this date into your diary and you’ll be able to join us for some food and drink in the park!

If you need any more details then please don’t hesitate to get in contact with the Düsseldorf Expat Meetup team.

We look forwarding to seeing you on Sunday 10th July at the Rheinpark!

All the best,
Düsseldorf Expat team

    A top afternoon and evening spent meeting like minded people and just generally chilling out in the beautiful surroundings of the Rheinpark. Looking forward to the next one when i get back from holidays in August.

    Hi Mira,
    There is parking close by Cecilien Allee, I am not sure if it is free or not on a Sunday, but I plan to park there. There is also parking in between the river and the park on a road called Robert Lehr Ufer. Free places at the top end close to the bridge and then not free closer to the BBQ location. There is a map on the photos section of this website (although from last year it is in the same location)

    Cheers
