Düsseldorf is the capital of the state North Rhine - Westphalia and its political center. As one of the metropolises at the rhineside, Düsseldorf is not only known for its economic power but for its art, culture and modern architecture which you will find all over the city.
Together with London, Düsseldorf accommodates the biggest Japanese community outside of Asia. Because of this every year there's the great “Japanese Fireworks” which takes place at the riverside.
Düsseldorf is the center of German carnival. All years thousands of people are meeting on the streets celebrating with laughter while they of course enjoy our local beer called “Altbier”, which is dark and aromatic.
Anyways there's a lot more to see... :-)
These are our regular meetings:
CS Meeting Düsseldorf (bi-weekly and changing weekdays)
Cooking Wednesday (bi-weekly)
Volkgarten Bilk - Running (Monday)
Pub quiz at Mc Laughlin's (Sunday)
Randomly organized meetings could be partys, Yoga workshops, movie nights, Zumba or Gyrokinesis, barbeques, town explorations etc...
Join us! You find everything on the board!
PS: There is a song that says "Düsseldorf has the longest bar in the world" meaning when you go into the "Altstadt" you will find a bar at each house.
