French, Italian, and Spanish are also widely spoken, and many immigrants from Turkey, Italy, and Poland, and increasingly Arab-speaking countries, retain their native language proficiency.
Düsseldorf is located in the Central European Time Zone, UTC+1.
The currency of Germany is the euro, and credit cards are widely accepted at grocery and retail stores. Take advantage of frequent ATMs to have cash on hand for restaurants, bakeries, and butcheries.
An excellent day-trip destination from Düsseldorf is Drachenfels, located 80 km south of the city. Stop along the way, if you like, in the beautiful cities of Cologne (though don’t tell your hosts you’re headed here, as Cologne is Düsseldorf’s rival city) and Bonn, before heading to the beautiful sights of more rural Drachenfels. Don’t forget to try the area’s award winning wine from the Pieper winery!
