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

The Ruhr offers assistance to make the process smooth. An area with five million inhabitants offers many popular municipalities and rural areas to relocate to and lead a fulfilled life.
