City of Düsseldorf

Düsseldorf, Fair room, Guesthouse Hegger in Meerbusch

Düsseldorf ranks as one of the most prominent economic, transport and Culture center in the Federal Republic of Germany.

The City is home to many international and Japanese companies. Düsseldorf is Germany’s largest fashion and advertising Center, as well as a prominent location for banks and stock exchanges. The City is also a leading location for trade fairs.

The Airport is the international hub of North Rhine-Westphalia. Is also known as the bird place of Heinrich Heine, Gustav Gründgens ant the artist Joseph Beuys who was working as a Professor of the academy of arts in Düsseldorf, many museums and the University of Heinrich Heine.

The city of Düsseldorf owes its origins to the Battle of Worringen in the year 1288, when Count Adolf VI von Berg inflicted a significant defeat on the Archbishop of Cologne with the help of Düsseldorfers. In gratitude, the Düsseldorfers were granted civic rights.

I seems that the inhabitants of Cologne still not have forgotten their defeat by the inhabitants of Düsseldorf. In the carnival and shows by cabaret-artists, there will often be negative speeches and jokes about Düsseldorf and its inhabitants. The Düsseldorfers do the same speeches and jokes about Cologne and their inhabitants very often too.
