The state capital of Düsseldorf is one of Germany’s strongest economic regions and is successful with regard to international ties. However, these dynamics, important when it comes to jobs, is only the economic side of this city on the Rhine: The other is its role as a region worth living in. Top rankings in various studies on the quality of life offer tangible proof: Düsseldorf provides a particularly pleasant environment – with both Rhenish warmth and urbane opportunities for leisure.

Düsseldorf’s “scene” comprising the Art Academy, University of Applied Sciences, Academy of Music and municipal cultural institutions, all of which are closely linked to our campus culture, are significant for the surrounding region too. Below please find some examples from this wide-ranging programme of cultural and sport events – you can find a complete overview online or in one of the numerous scene magazines.


The Haus der Universität is Düsseldorf’s window on science. As part of Heinrich Heine University, we aim to foster exchange between science and society through a wide range of events.

Here you can gain insights into the latest scientific findings, discuss current challenges in society with experts and experience Heinrich Heine University as a university committed to public engagement.

At the same time, we offer modern conference and meeting rooms in the heart of the city. The Haus der Universität is available to all university members for academic events and may also be booked by external organisers.
