What do I need to know about living in Dusseldorf?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Dusseldorf, they said:

"Before retiring in Dusseldorf, expats should be aware of the cost of living, which is higher than in many other parts of Germany. Expats should also research the local healthcare system and make sure they have adequate health insurance coverage. Additionally, expats should familiarize themselves with the local language, as German is the official language in Dusseldorf. Finally, expats should research the local culture and customs to ensure they are prepared to integrate into the local community," remarked one expat who made the move to Dusseldorf.
