The favourite international guide for expats & business travellers

Written by Garry, last edited on

Unfortunately the carnival celebrations and the big procession on Rosenmontag (Rose Monday) have had to be cancelled due to potentially dangerous stormy winds and possible thunderstorms. The floats can possibly be viewed in front of the town hall during Monday while many, many fans will still be celebrating across town anyway. The procession may be staged in the spring. A reduced affair is taking place down the Auobahn in Cologne.

Burlesque, the current show in Roncalli’s Apollo Varieté is attracting good audiences and offers a delightful opportunity for expats to experience vaudeville or variety performances.

Everything international business professionals and foreign residents need to know about life in Düsseldorf is available under Expat Life. Or discover more about the wonderful state capital of NRW, the region and the locals under The Location. Find out what’s on and what could be enjoyed on Düsseldorf’s extensive cultural timetable under Things to Do.

Many examples of street art can be found tucked away in residential side streets and more openly on house frontages or bridges. Kiefernstrasse is an exciting street to visit. In Düsseldorf, graffiti has outlived its day and property or vehicles are less defaced in most places.
