We wish you all a happy New Year, and look forward to enjoying some eventful months with you in Düsseldorf.

The year starts straight away with a highlight – the Düsseldorf Carnival – that will reach its peak at the beginning of February and will have the whole city linking arms and swaying together.

At the Duesseldorf Photo Weekend, art lovers will have the chance to see musician Bryan Adams from a completely new perspective, while boot Düsseldorf 2013 at the end of January will once again have plenty of innovations and trends for water sport fans.

As dreary as the early months of the year can often be, filled with longing for the spring – the winter blues won’t stand a chance thanks to the diverse events in the NRW capital.

We’re looking forward to seeing you here!
