Neuss Düsseldorfer Häfen
View Neuss from the air and it is easy to see why an early settlement was formed. Nowadays the majestic Rhine weaves its way through a vast urbanisation. Pan out further and the state capital of Düsseldorf comes into view.
The timeless waters of the Rhine have created a great European waterway. Barges work hard heading against the current. They benefit from it when heading north. Many dock in Neuss and Düsseldorf.
It is here that two large harbours were created long ago to connect and serve an ever more powerful local economy. Welcome to the world of Neuss Düsseldorfer Häfen.
An intelligent world of logistics
As well as the two original ports, new locations have been strategically added in recent years. These are of close proximity in Krefeld to the north and in Cologne, farther south.
Through their subsidiary the company offers a trimodal combination of efficient and low impact forms of transportation of goods. Besides ports and the waterways, rail haulage forms an ever increasing and fundamental role in their services.

To the surprise of newly arrived expats, some sections of the Rhine in Düsseldorf offer numerous beaches on both banks. The fine sand and shingle are ideal for walking, playing, relaxing and picnicking. Especially on warm and sunny summer days, people flock to enjoy the river.
The so-called Media Harbour lost most of its traditional commercial structures with just a few having been renovated. Impressive new structures have helped create a rather eclectic, haphazard and lively space wrapped around the waterline.
Düsseldorf became known as the garden city in the eighteenth century when Johann Wilhelm II, Elector of Palatinate, chose the city as his royal capital. Today, residents can enjoy several beautiful parks, splendid gardens and expansive woodlands.
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.
