Expat Life


Relocating can also result in dislocating. When moving to a new location, social contacts within the personal sphere can easily fall away. Creating new connections beyond expats in Düsseldorf  can raise wellbeing in the new community beyond a sense of belonging.

It can be a pleasant surprise how local nationals are willing to assist in improving dialogue and making connections. Beyond the social environment, the local health and wellbeing infrastructure aids physical and mental balance.

While English speakers might use wellbeing, the word wellness is established in the German language to signify pampering oneself. And since a good few residents of Düsseldorf take good care of themselves and invest in personal appearance, much is on offer to benefit expats.

Spas coexist with sports clubs, health centres and yoga. The national healthcare system is robust, cover is universal and the availability of good professionals such as doctors the norm. 

The International School of Düsseldorf offers world-class education to inspire their students to be confident, creative and critical thinkers. They work together to challenge and support all their students to be successful and responsible in an evolving world.
