Dusseldorf

The favourite city guide for expats, internationals & business travellers

Written by Garry, last edited by Garry on

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.

This weekend, the Carnival in Düsseldorf continues to offer local events such as the “Tonnenrennen” in Niederkassel on Sunday. Hundreds of thousands then flock to see the massive procession on Rosenmontag (Rose Monday). If you are still here, you can join in the madness. Those that don’t can head over to Muggel or run for the hills.

Roncalli’s Apollo Varieté is running its new show Carnival in Venice. 2017 marks tweny years of their vaudeville performances in Düsseldorf. Alternatively, an impressive variety of exhibitions is continuously on offer in many of the well known art venues and museums too.

Sometimes a personal touch is required upon arrival. The goal of the newly instigated Expat Service Desk is to provide just that. They are holding their first Expat Meet Up on March 9 from 6:30 pm. I am pleased to be able to spread the word. Admission is free after prior registration. Check out the article and download their form.

As usual, this year will see interesting events throughout the year. A highly unusual occurrence will also take place in the summer when the iconic Tour de France stages its socalled Grand Départ in the city. Big city business, small town charm

 

Muggel

Muggel presents a cozy ambiance with tightly arranged tables in bistro style and a large menu. It offers ideal spaces to relax, sit at the bar, party, enjoy fine drinks and choose from a blend of Mediterranean, Asian and European cuisine. A place to see, be seen, and to meet the crowd.

Every year at this time a decision is made by most expats. Stay, party and join in the unavoidable, or, for those who don't wish to, leave town. Whilst the exact date of the season varies from year to year, Thursday is the day things commence in earnest. Chaos reigns until Monday evening.
