»Düsseldorf – a global city
with style.«

The vibrant city of Düsseldorf on the Rhine is a fun place to live, to work and to move with the times. It is no surprise that in international surveys it has been voted again and again as one of the cities with the highest living standards in the world. The state capital of North Rhine-Westphalia is situated in the heart of the Rhine-Ruhr metropolitan region and is one of the ‘Big Five’: the five most important economic, transport, cultural and political centres in Germany with strong global connections. Not least due to the international airport, two redeveloped river ports, and excellent motorway and rail connections to the rest of Europe, this trade-centre city is home to numerous listed companies including E.ON, Henkel and Metro AG.

This cosmopolitan city on the Rhine is not only attractive as a business location; above all it is internationally renowned as a city of art and culture, as one of the most important fashion cities of Germany, and for its friendly, welcoming atmosphere. Düsseldorf’s elegant Königsallee, with its smart boutiques and designer label stores, attracts a sophisticated international clientele, while a more unconventional, young fashion scene has sprung up off the famous shopping mile and is also a draw for visitors from all over the world.
