Duisburg is situated on the Lower Rhine, in the western part of the Ruhr district in North Rhine-Westphalia. In the Ruhr part of Duisburg you will find what is arguably the biggest inland port in the world. The steel industry still characterizes the overall economic picture of the city. However, companies from other industries have also established themselves here, including from the coal, logistics and tourism industries, with companies such as alltours Flugreisen GmbH, IFA Hotel & Touristik AG and Schauinsland Reisen GmbH.
However, this city on the River Rhine is also not short of culture. The cultural festival “Duisburger Akzente” and the music festival “Musikfest Traumzeit-Festival” take place every year and attract cultural fanatics from all over the world. The Wilhelm-Lehmbruck Museum – International Centre of Sculptures has exhibitions of statues and sculptural works by national and international artists alike.
