I left Krefeld for Fulda, taking an hour to step over the border into Holland with a quick trip into the town of Venlo. The weather was unpleasant and so I did not go far. Then back on the train and off to the small city of Fulda, northeast of Frankfurt.
Krefeld is a small city between Dusseldorf and the Dutch border.
Viersen is north-west of Monchengladbach on the German-Dutch border.
Venlo is just over the Dutch-German border from Monchengladbach.
Dutch trains look a little different from the rest as trains come and go in the rain at Venlo, Holland.
Dusseldorf is an industrial city in the Ruhr Valley.
Trains pass through Dusseldorf Hauptbahnhof fast and furious.
Frankfurt is one of Europe's most important transportation hubs, with its airport the city's largest employer and the train station equally important to the domestic transportation system.
