HAPPENINGS IN DÜSSELDORF

Many events pop up and disappear with little or no advertising. Some activities are small or unique. Such happenings are posted in this calendar. A  source of possible surprise and discovery.

PLEASE CHECK FOR ANY REGULATIONS AND CANCELLATIONS OR CLOSURES.

Something special takes place throughout the year in Düsseldorf. Besides established events and exhibitions, smaller occasions can vary from a concert, theatre performance, vernissage, celebration, opening, anniversary, a spontaneous market or a small one off activity. 

Choose from expat meet ups and other happenings, some of which take place with surprisingly little publicity, yet well-informed local nationals attend. Members of the expat community of Düsseldorf and surroundings can enjoy these gatherings too.

The calendar below offers expats a quick, easy and simple way to discover current activities all on one page.
