SlideshowPics: Düsseldorf Delights for SDN Congress
Mitch Wagner

The only thing I knew about Düsseldorf before SDN & OpenFlow World Congress was a vague memory that it was a running joke on the 1960s sitcom Hogan's Heroes.

Now I know a lot more about it: It's a surprisingly pleasant little city, very walkable, with great public transit and bike paths, delicious food, and some nice scenery too. While I wouldn't recommend it as a vacation destination, if you've got some business there -- like, say, meeting with world telecom leaders to discuss the latest developments in SDN, NFV and OpenFlow -- get ready for a good visit.

For a photo gallery of my days at SDN & OpenFlow World Congress and exploring Düsseldorf, click the image below. And for highlights of our conference coverage and other recent SDN and NFV articles, click the links below the image.


Friendly Dog
Dusseldorf is a dog-friendly city. People take their pooches around town and into restaurants.

I tend to wonder if Europe -- or, at least, parts thereof -- is more dog-friendly than the US, in general.

Dachshunds, for instance, are very big in Poland -- and every autumn Krakow hosts a dachshund parade.
