Health & Wellbeing



Most Germans tend to take good care of their teeth, not only due to regular daily brushing but through professional cleaning. While many people used to be forced to visit the dentist by toothache, dental care has long been a fundamental aspect of the insurance system. Recommended intervals for checkups and treatment are normally between six to twelve months.

Dentists pass through a long period of education and training and keep up to date with new developments. Practices are generally modern, very often with the latest equipment due as well to the tax relief system for professional investments in Germany.

Tap water in Düsseldorf possesses such a high quality that it can be drunk from the tap regularly. Local water is treated and cleaned through an extensive process on its way to the consumer. By then it is highly drinkable and virtually tasteless.

Germans, on the whole, love and respect pets and are especially friendly to dogs. Keeping a pet on a leash is a must apart from inside official, special pens in the city. Surprisingly for some, dogs are also permitted on public transport and inside restaurants unless otherwise stated.
