Written by: Fernando Rodriguez, Account Manager, Pro QC International Besides the usual business cities in Germany we are used to hearing about, such as Frankfurt, Munich, Hamburg, Stuttgart, etc., there is also a significant number of small and well developed cities that are locally referred to as Grostdte, meaning "big cities". In most cases, these cities have less than half of a million inhabitants. This is the case of Dusseldorf, the capital city of the state North-Rhine Westphalia and center of the Rhine-Ruhr metropolitan region. Despite being a smaller city in area and population than the well-known Cologne, Dusseldorf is regarded as the business and financial center of the region, as well as the capital of fashion in the state. It is important to mention that North-Rhine Wesphalia is the most populous state in Germany with around 18 million people. There are 155 million people in a 500km radius from Dusseldorf, which is 31% of the total population of the European Union. That at the same time presents around 50% of the spending power of the EU. Around 11.5 million people live in locations within an hour car drive from Dusseldorf. Also, some of the most important European metropolis such as Paris, Amsterdam, Luxembourg, Brussels, London and Zurich are within an hour flight from Dusseldorf. The primary airport in Dusseldorf is Airport Dusseldorf International, with information found here: http://www.duesseldorf-international.de/dus_en As the third biggest airport in Germany, Dusseldorf is unsurprisingly well connected with non-stop flights to the following overseas destinations. Atlanta Bangkok Beijing Chicago Detroit Dubai Los Angeles Moscow New York St. Petersburg Teheran Toronto Vancouver It is worth noting that Dusseldorf has one of the highest ranks in quality of life, not only in Germany where it has first place, but also is comparable with cities like Zurich, Auckland, Wien, Vancouver, and others. With 40 consulates, 33 chambers of commerce and a large number of international schools and clubs, Dusseldorf, together with the whole region of Westfalia, is positioned as one of the most multicultural cities in Germany.
