  1. Thank you for your help in moving the post.    I apologise for offending you. I was just trying to go online to seek the help of local people. I do not know Germany nor am I skilled on the net, as you have now advertised. My son may well be much better in both things. I was just trying to save time for him and get back with helpful advice from those who know the town. 
  2. My son will be moving from the UK to Dusseldorf to work at the main airport within days. He has never been to German, never mind Dusseldorf, before. He does not drive and so needs to be within a short walking distance of a 24 hour public transport link to and from the airport. Can someone say what kind of transport makes most sense (particular train, tram or bus) in this context and which areas of Dusseldorf are best for accessing these direct transport links to the airport. I'm assuming there is no accommodation immediately adjacent to the airport - he'd happily walk (plane noise not an issue for him). A ten to twenty minute journey would be ideal. Are there less expensive ways of travelling e.g. a monthly, yearly ticket etc?   He will not have a large salary so will be looking for an apartment or flat share. Are there good sites to look at to find out what might be on offer?   Any info about budget? Obviously there will be monthly rent, gas/electricity but is there an equivalent of the UK council tax, a city tax perhaps and other costs to consider?   Any help and advice appreciated   Many thanks!
