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. Whether you are preparing your move, have recently arrived or already a resident, we wish you an very enjoyable stay and much fun navigating your new home.

Expat Experts in Düsseldorf

In a new country, not only the language differs but also thought processes. Complications and frictions can be reduced by working with specialists that have worked with expats. A possible added advantage is if they have themselves lived abroad and thus experienced being in a similar situation.

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.
