Dusseldorf is considered as one of the most modern German cities.

When the Roman Empire was strengthening its position throughout Europe, a few Germanic tribes clung on to their marshy territory off the eastern banks of the Rhine river. In the 7th and 8th centuries, the odd farming and fishing settlement could be found at the point where the small river Düssel flows into the Rhine. It was from such settlements that the city of Düsseldorf grew. However, the first written mention of Düsseldorf dates back to 1135. It had just a few inhabitants. By the mid-19th century, Dusseldorf enjoyed a revival thanks to the Industrial Revolution as the city boasted 100,000 inhabitants by 1882 before the figure doubled only ten years later!

Today, 571,000 people enjoy a modern living in this city.
