By Messe Düsseldorf, story Vincent Green, Jul 14 2022
Located a mere ten kilometres from the city centre, Düsseldorf has one of the world’s most accessible airports. Times for taxi rides can vary enormously depending on the time of day. Public transport includes an S-Bahn train to the terminal, rail to the Skytrain connection or busses.
Events and activities large and small happen in Düsseldorf throughout the year, some becoming nationally and internationally popular. Carnival is huge, as is the large funfair on the Rhine river bank opposite the old town.
Art venues and museums in Düsseldorf regularly present selections of their fine pieces in well arranged exhibitions. Regular exhibits also include fascinating or rare works from across the globe with loaned art and artefacts.
A great way to get to know Düsseldorf is to take an inspiring and rewarding walk, allow impressions to cause a pause, interact and allow details to remain more memorable. Admiring quaint side streets, strolling the promenade, the riverside or numerous woodlands bring joy to the soul.
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.
Far more than just a trade fair, boot Düsseldorf is the international trendsetter in the industry. With more than 1,900 exhibitors in 17 exhibition halls covering 220,000 square metres, it is the leading destination anywhere in the world for everyone who loves sports in, by and on the water.
The public transport system in Düsseldorf is safe and normally efficient. A dense network of trams, Strassenbahn, above and below ground as well as buses serve the city and its suburbs. Links via the S-Bahn train system reach further outlying areas and some neighbouring communities.
