Düsseldorf (German pronunciation: [ˈdʏsəldɔɐf]) is the capital city of the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia and centre of the Rhine-Ruhr metropolitan region.

Modern Düsseldorf is an important international business and financial centre and also renowned for its fashion and trade fairs.[2][3] Culturally, as a city by the River Rhine, Düsseldorf is a stronghold for Rhenish carnival celebrations. Every year in July more than 4.5 million people visit the city's Largest Fair on the Rhine funfair.

Even though it only ranks the seventh among the ten most populous cities in Germany by population within city limits, Düsseldorf is one of the country's five global cities.

The Mercer's 2009 Quality of Living survey of cities with the highest quality of life ranked Düsseldorf sixth worldwide and first in Germany.[4]
