The favourite guide for expats & business travellers

Written by Garry, last edited on

The Japan Day delights this weekend with vivid impressions and bright firework images in the sky after dark. Soon after follow Home and Garden, the Book Fair and the curious annual Cartwheeling Tournament. As always, English and other original language movies are on cinema screens too.

Next door in Neuss the Shakespeare Festival celebrates its twenty-fifth year with a programme that includes many English productions plus both a Portugese and a Catalan performance. Try too the Ruhrfestspiele in Recklinghausen with French and English pieces. Both on now.

Amazing Dusseldorf is the most comprehensive expat guide for the state capital of NRW featuring hundreds of specially selected articles. Düsseldorf is expat friendly and offers a high quality of life to its international residents.


Book Fair

For a few days of the summer, the atmosphere of the consumers paradise known as the Kö is uniquely transformed giving the boulevard a relaxed, quieter and almost bohemian flavour. The book stalls that line the pavements prove to be a huge magnet year after year.

In a new country, not only the language differs but also thought processes. Complications and frictions can be reduced by working with specialists that have worked with expats. A possible added advantage is if they have themselves lived abroad and thus experienced being in a similar situation.

When driving in Düsseldorf it is necessary to convert a driver’s license (Führerschein) issued by a foreign country to a local German version within the first six months. Following that time, the original license loses its validity and driving in the country is no longer permitted.

Looking at the skyline from one of the bridges that cross the Rhine, Dusseldorf may at first seem rather modest. However fine sights abound with street art, Germany's first skyscraper, the stunning theatre house, the Königsallee hive of luxury and "the longest bar in the world".

Society & Folk

Anyone who has experienced the hospitality offered by German society knows how peaceful the place is. This country and the folk here have changed much over recent years and people are much more laid back, friendly and humerous than first meets the eye.
