Information about Düsseldorf

Relocation Service in DüsseldorfLocated in the middle of Germany's most populous region and most densely settled urban region, the Rhein-Ruhr, and capital of the state North-Rhine-Westphalia, Düsseldorf is Germany's seventh biggest city and North-Rhine-Westphalia's most populous city after Cologne. The city on the Rhine, affectionately called “Rheinmetropole” (Rhine metropolis) by its natives, has many faces: fashion location, carnival stronghold and “world's longest bar” thanks to the old town center, cosmopolitan cultural and business center.

With its 588,000 inhabitants, Düsseldorf strictly speaking is not really a metropolis but its population is constantly growing thanks to the relatively high number of newcomers from the rest of Germany and around the world. Around 100,000 foreign immigrants from 40 countries have made the ciy their new home and enrich its cultural and business life. Thanks to its large Japanese community of about 7,000, Düsseldorf earned the nickname “Nippon on the Rhine”.

Working in Düsseldorf

Working in DüsseldorfDüsseldorf is Germany's highest earning advertising and fashion location, and sets the bar throughout the country in these industries as well as in communication and consultancy. It is also an internationally important economic center and is home to many global companies like L'Oréal, Henkel, Vodafone, and the Metro grocery chain. The city's airport and trade fair center, which yearly hosts 23 top international fairs, are both also important employers. Düsseldorf's finance center is the country's second largest after Frankfurt am Main. 

Living in Düsseldorf

Rents in Düsseldorf are among Germany's highest: in recent years, the average net monthly rent climbed to €8.50/sq m. The range starts at €5.50/sq m for relatively simple housing in pre-1948 apartments, and goes up to €13.00/sq m for brand-new apartments in newly-constructed buildings or  well-restored pre-1948 apartments. The high level of rents depends on the location. It also heavily affects all sizes of apartments and is relatively stable at the moment.

Education and childcare

Erziehung und AusbildungDüsseldorf is well placed in comparison with other German cities for its provision of education and childcare. Over 100 public educational establishments offer full-day comprehensive educational and care activities for children aged four months to 14 years, from nurseries to primary and secondary schools, with some schools also offering care in 15 foreign languages. A complete list of all city schools is published on the city’s website. Düsseldorf has 11 international educational facilities for children aged four months to 6 years.

A world city with village flair, Düsseldorf enjoys a thriving cultural landscape that has no problem keeping pace with larger German cities like Munich or Berlin. The comic and clowning traditions of the carnival are at home as much as the avant-garde of its varied theater, cabaret, opera and musical scene or the richness of its internationally renowned museums and galleries.  Long established events and street festivals such as the Größtes Kirmes am Rhein, the Rhine's biggest fun fair, or the Radschlägerturnier - the annual cartwheel contest which sees hundreds of children competing against each other every summer – date back to the Middle Ages and reflect the affection and pride of the Düsseldorf natives for their home.
