The favourite international guide for expats & business travellers

Written by Garry, last edited on

The carnival celebrations have begun to reach their climax for this year. Düsseldorf is a city full of surprises during the next few days until the big procession on Rosenmontag (Rose Monday).

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.


Carnival in Neuss

The carnival season is long, starting on November 11 and going through to Kappessontag (Nonsense Sunday), Rosenmontag (Rose Monday) and Aschermittwoch (Ash Wednesday) sometime in February or March. Some eighteen local carnival organisations and clubs can be found in Neuss.

The general rule of thumb is stay and party or, for those who don't wish to, leave town. Thursday is the day things commence in earnest when masses of women storm the town hall and chaos breaks out. On Monday an enormous procession meanders for hours through the city.

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.
