Düsseldorf with its surrounding towns and villages can be a little lonely for foreigners, especially those expats with little German knowledge. Local culture is unique and the custom of popping down the pub before the journey home from work is not as widespread as in other countries. 

A useful option to catch up with others in a similar situation can be found on relevant social networks. Several expat groups can be found on Facebook and the Meetup platform. Both arrange regular monthly get-togethers during the evening at popular bars in Düsseldorf.


Internations groups are run in Düsseldorf that are specifically created to bring people together with a common interest in various topics.

Members are international residents and local nationals, often individuals that have lived abroad and yearn for reconnecting with like-minded expats.
