About Düsseldorf

Düsseldorf is the capital of the Federal State of North Rhine-Westfalia. It is located at the heart of the Rhine-Ruhr area – the largest metropolitan area in Germany and is an emerging hub of entrepreneurial innovation and technology.

Düsseldorf is known not only for its high living standard, ranking 6th in the Mercer worldwide quality of living survey, but also as an important venue for conferences and trade fairs, with the corresponding infrastructure such as a modern conference centre, efficient public transport, a large choice of hotel rooms and great variety of restaurants. Düsseldorf is well connected to the European railway network, with high speed connections to the main European cities. Düsseldorf international airport is the third-largest airport in Germany and serves many direct international destinations not only in Europe but also worldwide.

In the only major German city that still proudly keeps the word “dorf” (village) in its name you will experience the tolerant and cosmopolitan way of life that is cultivated in each one of its 10 districts. Düsseldorf stands for internationality, diversity and openness, with citizens from around 180 nations living in the State capital. With nearly 10.000 Japanese inhabitants, “Little Tokyo” is the home to the largest Japanese community in Germany, and third largest in Europe, after London and Paris.

Düsseldorf is relatively small compared to other major cities in Germany, so that everything is close. Yet, visitors will find plenty of places of interest as the city’s 50 “Stadtteile” (neighborhoods) all have their own charm and attractions. Enjoy a traditional “Altbier” (old bier) in the Altstadt (Old Town), also known as the “longest bar in the world”, with more than 300 bars and discos almost door to door. The Medienhafen (Media Harbour) boasts an impressive display of post-modern architecture, including Frank Ghery’s Zollhof, design shops and gastronomy. You can feed your inner foodie in the trendy restaurants in Flingern, or visit Bilk to discover its unique mixture of old Düsseldorfers, students and hipsters. If you go further away, discover the classy and historical neigborhoods: Oberkassel on the west bank of the Rhine, Benrath to the south or Kaiserswerth to the north.

And if you are in the mood for shopping, don’t miss the Königsallee, the most exclusive shopping street in Germany. There is a reason why Düsseldorf is known as Germany’s fashion capital! The city also stands for culture: it is home to 26 museums and more than 100 galleries that include the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen (Art Collection North Rhine- Westphalia), the Museum Kunstpalast and the NRW-Forum, dedicated to design and photography. Music lovers should not miss the unique experience of the Tonhalle (Music Hall), housed in the old planetarium, and the Opera House. And with good weather, the Rhine will be calling: take a long walk on its kilometres long promenades on either side if the river, and be amazed at the view of sheep grazing on the river bank in the middle of the city!
