Remscheid, Route of tools, Germany - 30th December 2008

By: olgamaus

Hi Mummy,
the weather is fantastic here. It is cold and the sun in shining. So Katja took us out in her lunch break when she had to do some shopping. I took a scarf to avoid becoming ill (Katja has a bad cold, maybe she forgot her scarf).

We walked along the Route of tools (Trasse des Werkzeugs). It is a lane for pedestrians and cyclists through the town, made on a closed railway route. It was financed by many local industrial firms, most of them are producing tools. Along the lane you can find signs of those producers and also artwork. You can also see the city arms here.


This route is about 5 km long and is leading from the central train station to the district Hasten. Today we started somewhere in the middle of the route and walked towards the train station.

On the backside of a supermarket replications of  pictures of a local artist who died in 1988 are installed.



You can also see abandonded factory buildings.


These buildings are part of the former slaughterhouse. This complex is under preservation order. Nowadays these buildings are used by different companies.


Here are more signs showing names and company logos of sponsors.



We reached the central railway station. Oh dear, the whole railway station is a complete building site. I better do not show you this mess. I like the St.-Andrews-cross more.


We went shopping then. We even bought some firework. We are invited by Katja's sister-in-law to celebrate New Year's Eve.

Happy New Year, Mummy!
