Good news for anyone who has to use the pedestrian tunnel that underpasses the main railway track between Essen and Duisburg at Grunertstraße. This tunnel is a hatred object for all who have to pass it, because of darkness, coldness and wetness, even if the majority don’t realize that the tunnel was used as a camp for 150 prisoners of world war II in former times.
Every time I pass this tunnel it makes me goose bumps. I hope that this will be over soon. The tunnel is currently being re-painted by a local freelance graffiti artist. Upon completion you’ll swim through the tunnel with several inhabitants of a tropical reef like turtles, sharks, dolphins and fish.
