Having a tourist in a city like this is beneficial. Still, a tourist should also know some of the boundaries and ethics they have to follow for that destination to prosper long after leaving the city. The following points will shine light upon some of the most basic etiquette and norm a tourist must follow when visiting Duisburg or rather any other country or state in the world.

  • Use public transport: People who come to visit a country often avoid public transport and book their own cars and vehicles. This must not be done. Using public transport is prosperous for the destination and helps to make the roads less clogged. We all know public transport has the capacity to hold ten times the number of passengers than a car.
  • Riding bicycles: This is one of the best ways one can travel to and from one place to another when visiting a destination. In Duisburg, there are ways through which one can hire bicycles. Riding a bicycle helps the city's environment and allows businesses to prosper, and even help you stay fit and healthy.
