Mulheim an der Ruhr
Parking, Mulheim – site code : 9153
1 x night
Basic of basics stopover for the night, its just a car park, with my extensive research I did i chose this spot for quite a few reasons:
- It was close to McRent so we didnt have to drive far as I knew we would need to settle in and unpack and get to know the van better
- It was 5mins from Aldi and another supermarket
- It was quiet and in the back streets of the backstreets of Dusseldorf / Mulheim – we werent so confident driving yet so didnt want to be stuck in a busy place
Mulheim is also described as a “City on the River”, and is in North Rhine-Westphalia in Germany. It is home to many companies, especially in the food industry, such as the Aldi Süd
Mülheim received its town charter in 1808, and 100 years later the population exceeded 100,000, making Mülheim officially a city. At the time of the city’s 200th anniversary with approximately 170,000 residents, it is one of the smaller cities in Germany.
OUR FIRST GROCERY SHOP!
ARGHHH!! I hate knowing what Aldi is like in Europe compared to Australia! There are SOOOOOOO many more options of everythinggggg here in Germany and everything is so CHEAP in comparison. I kept taking photos of all the products just to keep note of the price for memory
FIRST DINNER IN THE VAN
So we christened the van and had its first dinner EVER inside!
Everything worked perfectly, the water, the gas stove and the fridge we were so happy with, perfect size for the 3 of us and we just felt so at home instantly
This campsite is really good if you are hiring from McRent. Good place to get your barings, get your shopping done and then start off on your adventure – it really is just a carpark so dont expect too much – but it worked perfectly for our needs for the night
