SOCIETY & FOLK IN DÜSSELDORF
The topic of German society and its folk are frequently hotly debated with opinions divided. Even many natives claim the Germans are highly respected, yet they lack humour and are complicated. Others notice they walk too slowly on sidewalks and stand in the way on escalators. They also feel Germany is a juggernaut, too strong and too powerful for most. That may be.
However, anyone who has experienced the hospitality offered by this culture knows more. Sure there are easier places to live but this country and the folk here have changed very much over recent decades.
Germans are more laid back than first meets the eye. Life in Germany as a whole and Düsseldorf especially is peaceful. Citizens are mainly generous. And the vast majority of youth are some of the most open-minded in the world.
