Hallo and Willkommen to InterNations! Muelheim, or “The City on the River”, is a beautiful and historic city located in the German region of North Rhine-Westphalia. Although many large companies are situated in Muelheim, making it easier for expats to find corporate work, over 50% of the city is concealed beneath trees and greenery. As one of the smaller German cities, Muelheim is a relaxing yet varied place to live in. It offers a number of stunning sights to distract expatriates in Muelheim who are missing their home countries, including the stunning Muga Park, which is known as the green oasis of Muelheim. Regardless of the ease of living found in Muelheim, you may still wish to connect with other global-minded people in the same boat as you. InterNations gives you the opportunity to do so by providing a platform for expats living in Muelheim and across the world where they can find and connect with one another.

Muelheim lies on both banks of the Ruhr river and is extremely well connected by main train lines heading to built-up areas, such as Dusseldorf. Getting in and out of the city will not be a problem for expatriates in Muelheim who are new to the area. It can be difficult finding accommodation in Muelheim if you don’t speak German, however. Some expats rent a spare room in a shared apartment or house when they first arrive but this may also be difficult to achieve without help. InterNations provides you with a space to pose questions about these kinds of issues to people who are best placed to give you an answer: people who have been there themselves. If you have any general questions about moving to a new and unknown city have a look at our Expat Magazine for wide-ranging advice on practical issues, such as how to adjust to your new life abroad, international insurance and finance, culture shock and cross-cultural communication. Repatriation may also be a worry for some workers new to the expatriate life, so we provide handy tips and supportive information to make transitioning to and from a new place as easy as possible.
