Düsseldorf: a highly liveable business hub

Your #behomie serviced apartment is located in one of the most liveable places there is: Düsseldorf (and more specifically, the Medienhafen district). With a population of around 640,000, the capital of North Rhine-Westphalia is Germany’s sixth-largest city – although it frequently comes out on top in surveys: Düsseldorf is ranked first in the categories “Living and housing”, “Food and drink” and even “Atmosphere and character”. In 2018, Düsseldorf even came in sixth in a ranking of the world’s most liveable cities. As the political and economic hub of North Rhine-Westphalia, the city plays host to 24 world-leading trade fairs and welcomes more than 4 million tourists every year.

There are so many reasons to live and work in Düsseldorf that it’s impossible to list them all. But here are a few things we especially love about the city…

Relax, party and shop

There’s so much to do in Düsseldorf, locals rarely ever need to leave the city. The Old Town (Altstadt) is nicknamed the “Longest bar in the world”, and for good reason – with countless traditional German pubs selling Altbier connected to lively bars. At the weekend, locals meet at the Königsallee high street to do their shopping. The Old Town and Königsallee are the most popular locations in the city’s annual carnival, which brings the business hub to a standstill for a few days every year. From the Thursday (Weiberfastnacht) to the Monday (Rosenmontag) before Ash Wednesday, many companies only operate a skeleton staff and lots of shops and museums are temporarily closed. Meanwhile, sports fans have plenty of options in the city – be it catching a Fortuna Düsseldorf football match, heading to an ice hockey game of DEG – which is steeped in history and has won the German championship multiple times – or visiting the Olympic training facility of German table tennis, where Timo Boll represents the record-breaking champions Borussia Düsseldorf.

Unlimited ways to get around

There are plenty of great options for getting around Düsseldorf. As well as various car sharing firms (including Car2Go, DriveNow, Stadtmobil and Greenwheels), you’ll find countless rental bikes on the roads and hundreds of electric scooters, which you can park pretty much anywhere. And don’t forget: in the underground garage at #behomie apartments, you have access to your own electric bikes. The city also has a comprehensive public transportation network that includes underground trains, trams and buses, some of which even travel to neighbouring towns and cities. You can also reach your next business meeting or your family by plane or train: every day, hundreds of flights take off from Düsseldorf airport – the third-largest in the country – to destinations around the world, and more than 1,000 trains depart the main train station.

Centrally located in the Rhine-Ruhr metropolitan region

Düsseldorf is located right in the heart of Europe’s biggest metropolitan region. In just 20 to 60 minutes you can reach almost any of the area’s major cities, including Essen, Duisburg, Bochum or Dortmund. Or how about Wuppertal, Solingen, Krefeld, Mönchengladbach or Cologne? Düsseldorf natives have an affectionate rivalry with the people of Cologne, in particular. It’s almost considered good manners around here! People joke that some Cologne computer shops have keyboards with a "Kölsch" button instead of the Alt key. And games between DEG and the Cologne Sharks are highlights of the ice hockey season. But at the end of the day, the two cities and their people are connected by their proximity to one another, and after the first traditional Cologne pub opened in the Medienhafen district – the Eigelstein – Cologne natives now even brew their own Altbier (a dark beer native to Düsseldorf). The 2008 “Miss Cologne” even came from Düsseldorf. But one thing will never change: during Carnival they shout “Alaaf!” in Cologne and “Helau!” in Düsseldorf.
