CARTWHEELING was invented in Dusseldorf, a city in the west of Germany and one of the new locations accessible from Bristol Airport.

The city sits on the river Rhine and is home to around 11 million people. It boasts an impressive array of art in the streets and an eclectic mix of architecture.

It is just over an hour from Bristol via one of bmi’s aeroplanes, making it a great location for a weekend break. There are snacks and drinks to enjoy during the short flight.
