Düsseldorf is a delightful place that welcomes foreigners who flock to the city to attend world renowned trade fairs or congresses. Thousands of expats who live here add to the economy through visits by their network of friends from other countries.
With the rise of popularity of urban trips in recent years paired with expansion of airline flights, the capital of North Rhine Westphalia has managed to attract millions of tourists from across the globe. Its convenient and pretty location on the Rhine, extensive cultural landscape, open hearted inner city atmosphere and numerous sights makes it a popular destination.
Many come simply to shop in Düsseldorf’s comprehensive yet compact and easy to navigate retail landscape. For others, places within easy reach include the cathedral in Cologne and the famous Loreley rock on the river Rhine make it an ideal starting point.
Offering many services, Düsseldorf Marketing & Tourismus is the official organisation responsible for promoting the city.
