Hello Europe! It’s Eurovision time

JedwardYes folks it’s that time of year again. Put on your sparkliest outfit, dust down the vocal chords and make your way to Düsseldorf for Europe’s big annual family reunion - the Eurovision Song Contest, the city is set to be overrun with thousands of Eurovision fanatics who have traveled from all across the continent to do their patriotic duty in supporting their country in the most wonderfully weird musical extravaganza.

The centre of the festivities will be the Esprit Arena situated in Düsseldorf’s Nordpark area where for 3 nights this week a crowd of 24,000 Eurovision diehards will gather together for the biggest music bash of the year.
For those who want to stay right in the thick of the glittery action, 9flats has some great accommodations on offer right around the park.

And if you didn’t manage to grab a ticket for the show, you can still soak in the perkiest pop party by checking out one of the many other events that are taking place across the city. Our tip is the live open-air screening of the final on May 14th on Johannes-Rau-Platz where fans will be able to follow proceedings with the help of two massive screens. But don’t be fooled by thinking it’s all over once the winner is announced and the credits start to roll – because that’s when the party will really begin.

And after all this excitement, you’re going to need a place to lay your head for the night. Take a look at our cute city flat full of character; 9flats has apartments stretching right across the city.

One last thing to remember: 9flats……. Douze Points!!!
