Publisher Description

Situated in the Northwest region of Germany, where the river Dussel flows into the Rhine, is Germany’s financial, fashion and cultural capital, Dusseldorf. It is the state capital of North-Rhine Westphalia, Germany’s largest metropolitan region, consisting of over 11 million inhabitants. The city, itself home to over a million and a half urbanites, is internationally known as a business and financial giant, as it headquarters five Fortune Global 500 corporations as well as several DAX - Germany’s Stock Index - companies. It is also famous for its fashion and trade shows, and Messe Dusseldorf, its fairground, is claimed to have organized and hosted close to one fifth of the world’s premier trade shows. Over the last few decades, Dusseldorf has really boomed; certain areas of the city have been developed by well-known architects, its economy has grown along with its population, and its reputation as an industrial powerhouse has been established. However, business moguls and fashion tycoons are not the only visitors who are lured to Dusseldorf by its charisma and success. With the culture, architecture, history, and shopping this city has to offer, no matter how high your sights are set, you will be pleasantly surprised. Prepare to be dazzled and allow Dusseldorf’s charm to swaddle you as if you were a royal child.
