Welcome to Düsseldorf and Amazing Dusseldorf, the English language guide with all that’s needed to assist expats and internationals living or working in the city.

The fourth Craft Beer Festival is happening this first weekend of July, when Triena and Sina from Crafters present over 80 brands of craft beer from an impressive list of international micro breweries. 5 local bands are playing live music while several food trucks delight the palates and senses of expats and nationals alike. More about this and other activities on the Happenings article.

To assist expats, local authorities and businesses, the first eBook for Düsseldorf is now published, much of the content relevant to expats in Ruhr. If demand requires, a version for the Ruhr Metropolis could be released.. Enjoy over 50 pages of new articles, excerpts from the eGuide plus a few personal stories. Free to download and available to share, no sign up required.

The Next Düsseldorf Clean Up comes in the form of collecting cigarette filters on July 7. The international community has adopted the official annual “Dreck Weg” concept and offers continuity to those residents who wish to volunteer.

Finally, the Düsseldorf weekly original movie update reveals new releases and ongoing films of many genres in English and other languages. Those reading from the Ruhr Metropolis will be pleased to know a weekly update of movies in many Ruhr cinemas is available there too. Enjoy!
