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.

Upcoming events include the Caravan Salon Düsseldorf and TourNatur at the trade fair grounds alongside the Rhine. Almost anything and everything concerning outdoor lifestyles can be discovered. Held annually, this is the largest fair in its long history.

Looking ahead, an English language play penned by an Australian in Düsseldorf will be performed in the Theatermuseum on September 1 & 2. J’n‘R by Fiona Leonard is a fast-paced comedy about what happens when life doesn’t go according to plan: It’s 4am and Jules is sitting in an airport coffee lounge waiting for her flight to be called. The last thing she wants is to see anyone or talk to anyone. And she sure as hell isn’t planning on falling in love…especially not with the very weird (but oddly familiar) guy in the corner quoting Shakespeare..

On the Königsallee, the Gourmet Festival will be repeated again this year. A delight for all who wish to pamper their taste buds.

The weekly movie update reveals a number of current releases of many genres. This week in English and French.

North Rhine Westphalia (NRW) is Germany's largest federal state by population and fourth by size. Green meadows and woodlands, hilly and mountainous regions, agriculture and dense urban zones as well as forty-four rivers such as the Rhine and Ruhr define the state.



Over time, a patchwork of small and large states has come into being. Since 1990 there are a total of sixteen federal states. Some are cities, others vast geographical regions. The country's federal system spreads responsibility to many institutions.

Crossing a street in Germany to this day still reveals a discipline that is seldom experienced elsewhere. When the red light is showing at a pedestrian crossing, people mostly wait for a green one. Often for excruciatingly long periods on completely empty streets.
