Ranking sixth on the Mercer Quality of Life Index, Dusseldorf is the perfect location for short-term and long-term stays. It is filled with coworking places and provides what a digital nomad needs to be happily coliving there: fast Internet, walkability, safety, and a plethora of things to do.
In this little big city, everything is in reach. When the weather is nice, life takes place along the riverside. Let clowns and break-dancers entertain you, play sports like volleyball at the sandy beach, or just watch the sunset with a can of local beer in your hand. Another important part of life in the city is the markets. Especially the open-air second-hand market at Aachener Platz is popular among locals and visitors. Typical for the northern half of Germany is also the thriving indie scene. In the Flingern district, lines of houses are covered in colorful and witty graffiti, from top to bottom. Listen carefully and you’ll find the alternative music venues in this district.
