Dusseldorf is Germany at its finest. The city has a thriving economy, a relatively low unemployment rate, excellent infrastructure and friendly people. It is an international hub for business and economic relations and a major centre of the Rhine Ruhr Area, Western Europe’s most populated Metropolitan Area after Greater London.
Drawing a circle around this location and comparing to other cities dotted across Europe reveals how central the city really is. Measurements include the distance a truck can drive in a day, destinations within one hour’s flight and also the population within fifty or one hundred kilometres.
Financial prudence and the resulting sturdiness in Düsseldorf is in part due to saying goodbye to too many Keynesian methods. The strategy followed nowadays has been more conservative. with shares in utilities and subsidiaries sold, debt radically reduced and investments increased.
In Germany the city is mainly known for its fancy bars, glamorous residents and prestigious shopping facilities.
