Düsseldorf lies at the centre of the Lower Rhine basin, where the delta of the River Düssel flows into the Rhine. The city lies on the east side of the Rhine. It is the capital city of the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia and the seventh most populous city in Germany. Düsseldorf is an international business and financial centre, renowned for its fashion and trade fairs. Messe Düsseldorf organises nearly one fifth of premier trade shows. The city is well known for its Altbier, a hoppy beer which translates as old [style] beer, a reference to the pre-lager brewing method.

A wellknown landmark in Düsseldorf is the Der Neue Zollhof (The New Tax-House) at the Düsseldorf-Hafen, part of the redeveloped port of Düsseldorf. The building complex consisting of three separate buildings, was designed by American architect Frank O. Gehry and completed in 1998. Each building has a different facade cladding - the outer two in white plaster and red brick respectively; the central building′s stainless steel facade reflects material and shapes of its two neighbour buildings.
