Things to do


The collection of museums and historical attractions in Düsseldorf is surprisingly diverse. A quirky mix of cultural institutions means visits to such magnificent institutions is often surprising.

The museums of the state capital impress with well structured, comprehensible displays, striking locations and magnificent architecture. They include the Stadtmuseum, Film Museum and Hetjens Museum of Ceramics. Benrath Baroque Palace with its beautiful gardens is included on the UNESCO World Heritage List while the Jägerhof stately home hosts the Goethe Museum.

Socialising in Düsseldorf

Staying in touch and getting together with others living in a similar situation can be important. Expat groups in social media are highly valuable sources for connecting. Socialising in Düsseldorf can include events, international clubs or heading for a popular spot to meet international residents.
