Several Facebook groups in Düsseldorf have thousands of members. Two of them organise regular monthly evening get-togethers in pubs that attract a crowd of interesting people.
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.
