Traditionally Roman Catholic, over the years Dusseldorf has slowly become a large protestant center. The two denominations are still the largest religious groups in the city. However, Dusseldorf has the third-largest Jewish community in Germany, totaling over 1% of it’s population. Islam has also started to grow in the city, and there are over a dozen mosques.
An Overview of Dusseldorf
Dusseldorf is an international business and financial city located in Western Germany. It is the seventh largest city in Germany with almost 2 million people living in the urban area. In 2009, a survey ranked Dusseldorf sixth on the list of the best cities to live in world-wide. The city is a crux of Germany’s densest area of autobhans (the country’s highway system), making it an ideal hub.
While Dusseldorf is mainly known for its rich culture, the city is also the country’s top telecommunication centers. One of the other facts that makes Dusseldorf distinct is it’s large enclave of expats. One-fifth of the city is made up of foreigners – mainly Grecians, Turks, and Italians. Dusseldorf is also host to Europe’s third largest Japanese community.
