The city of Neuss is situated opposite the provincial capital of Düsseldorf.
Neuss (Novaesium) is one of the oldest cities in Germany. Its more than 2000-year history goes back to the time of the Roman Empire. The founding of the city is proven by a deed from the year 1190. Today, Neuss is a large town of around 150.000 residents.
Neuss is the largest city in the Rhine district and in terms of population belongs to the district (i.e. not independent), largest city in the Federal Republic of Germany. The cities of Düsseldorf, Dormagen, Grevenbroich, Korchenbroich, Kaarst and Meerbusch border the city of Neuss.
The Quirinus-Münster, the Obertor, the arsenal Zeughaus, the city walls at Hamtor-Platz and some museums can be reached easily by foot.
The pedestrian zone (Krefelder Str. / Niederstr.) offers a series of economical shopping possibilities in the city centre.
A visit to the Neuss galloping race track on race days is well worthwhile.
