Sights in Düsseldorf
There is a lot to discover
Düsseldorf: the City Hall on the market square, which dates back to
1570; the MediaHarbour, Düsseldorf's main landmark; the world-famous
Königsallee, nicknamed "Kö"; the Rhine promenade; Benrath Palace in the
south of the city and much more.
The City Hall complex
consists of the so- called "Old City Hall" on the northern side of the
market square, the "Grupello House" and the "Wilhelmian House" on the
western side. The City hall was built some 435 years ago, and over the
course of time it has received some additions, including a gate and a
balcony. The Wilhelmian House was completed in
1875 on the
site of the former city theatre.
The three contrasting
buildings of the MediaHarbour serve as new landmarks in Düsseldorf.
Each building was construc- ted from different materials, and the
trium- virate is governed by a certain asymme- try, affording the
composition a sculptu- resque appearance. The material for the central
building was chosen to connect the three structures; the outer two are
reflected in it.
The Königsallee, or
"Kö", is probably the most internationally known landmark in
Düsseldorf. The classiest kilometre in Germany presents itself as one
of the great luxury boulevards of the world.
The Rhine promenade
In addition to the
long-established "Kö", there is also another prominent strip to walk
down in Düsseldorf: the Rhine promenade. Those in the know like to call
it the most beautiful on the entire Rhine. The traffic roars beneath
the serrated blue stones. Above, the citizens of Düsseldorf play boules
and practice the art of idleness, which is considered ultimate
fulfilment here along the Rhine.
More than 200 years ago,
Karl Theodor had the palace built for his leisure
and hunting pursuits. Today it serves as one of the complete works of
art of the late Rococo era, which have become a rarity in Europe. View
the exhibits in the main palace (e.g. furniture and porcelain), and
visit the "Museum for European Landscape Gardening" in the east wing.
