Things to do


Many events pop up and disappear with little or no advertising. Some activities are small or unique. Such happenings are posted in this calendar. A  source of possible surprise and discovery.

Neuss may be a relatively small city but there is much going here. Happenings include concerts, theatre performances, an exhibit vernissage or finissage. Spontaneous celebrations, an opening, anniversary or a pop-up market can be thoroughly enjoyable too.

Happenings often take place with surprisingly little publicity. Just a few local nationals attend. Many in the expat community of Neuss, Düsseldorf and the region adore these gatherings.

The calendar below offers expats a quick, easy and simple way to discover current activities all on one page.
