Expat Ecosystems


Amazing Capitals are informative and inspirational online resources full of insights at the heart of the expat experience in their location. Each one is dedicated to helping international specialists and residents make choices, settle and participate in the unique local cultural environment.

Amazing Capitals Düsseldorf is the original of the portfolio. The online expat guide was instigated in 2007 following requests for support from consular staff and the city. Now in its third release, the expat guide covers life in the attractive location on the river Rhine in Germany. A place with big city business and small town charm. The latest addition is the marvellous third Spanish city of Valencia on the Mediterranean coast.

Life can at times feel unsettling when choosing to relocate. With the world at your feet, the lure of dozens of foreign places can be tempting. Criteria such as the feel of the city, immigration process, degree of welcome and ease of learning a new language are major deciding factors.

Amazing Capitals eGuides offer assistance to make the process smooth in their locations.

Numerous expats bring along or acquire a four legged member of the family. Are locals pet friendly, a license necessary, are dogs permitted on public transport or in restaurants and is a leash a must? Surprises await on this and other topics such as telecoms, insurance, banks, utilities, recycling, emergencies, libraries and religion. All are covered in detail in the local eGuide.
