About this event

North Rhine-Westphalia (the locals call it “NRW”) is the economic heart of Germany, an important industrial state with a rapidly expanding service sector. With 18 million inhabitants, NRW is the most populous and also the most densely populated state in Germany. Covering an area of 34,084 square kilometres, it is the fourth-largest German state by size. 

Here in NRW, we have many years of experience with a colourful mix of nationalities. Located in the west of Germany, NRW features 30 of the 81 German municipalities with over 100,000 inhabitants, including Cologne (over 1 million), the state capital  Düsseldorf, Dortmund and Essen (all about 600,000 inhabitants) and other cities predominantly located in the Rhine Ruhr metropolitan area, the largest urban area in Germany and the fourth-largest on the European continent.

Here, imposing industrial monuments stand alongside relaxing landscape parks, elegant shopping streets alternate with urban metropolitan oases. Cosmopolitanism and creativity characterise the attitude towards life in NRW.

Germany will host EURO 2024, have been chosen to stage the 17th edition of the UEFA European Championship.
