Remarkably cosmopolitan for a city of its size, Düsseldorf has a diverse population where waves of immigration in past decades have left a rich ethnic legacy. Newcomers from the Mediterranean and Middle East, Eastern Europe and more recently Asia and the EU have enriched the local community, bringing with them new creeds and cuisines.

The city is home to the largest Japanese community in mainland Europe. Dutch, British, American, French, Turkish and Chinese citizens are also well represented. Everyone seems to rub along pretty well together.

A warm welcome to Düsseldorf and Amazing Dusseldorf, a bespoke collection of information for international residents in their foreign location.

Utilities in Düsseldorf

Power, gas, water and waste disposal can all be ordered separately. Local utilities corporations offer complete services, while a few national giants and lower priced competitors also vie for business. Confusing tariffs are abundant.

International Clubs in Düsseldorf

Dusseldorf offers several clubs for expats. Lively and varied, many provide events where members and guests have an opportunity to meet other foreigners and local people in the similar situation of living in a new location in a foreign country.
