The Location


The countryside surrounding the city of Düsseldorf varies from undulating hills, flat pastures and fields to steeper valleys and plateaus. Local cultures, diverse traditions and a long history are all visible in and around the smaller municipalities in the vicinity.

The Ruhr Metropolis is just thirty minutes along the busy motorway to the north east, the Dutch border a half an hour to the west. The south reveals the riverside cities of Cologne and Bonn, whilst a trip north soon sees wider open spaces appear over an undulating horizon.


Society & Folk

Society and folk in Germany is often hotly debated and opinions divided. However, anyone who has experienced the hospitality offered in this culture knows more. Germans are more laid back than first meets the eye. Life in Germany as a whole and Düsseldorf especially is peaceful.
