The business district
Dusseldorf - The business district
More than 80% of the city centre was destroyed in WWII, but Dusseldorf proved resilient and emerged from the ashes as a sophisticated and wealthy town. Of the 30 quoted companies that go to make up the DAX, eleven have their headquareters here. Dusseldorf is also a centre of trade. Fifty transnational corporations have branches in Dusseldorf, and the city is Europe's leading steel market and second most important metal trading centre after London.
