For those who love art and culture: Düsseldorf is the place to be!
ART & CULTURE
The cultural offer of the city of Düsseldorf and the surrounding area is very diverse and has something interesting to offer to everyone. We would like to recommend the following destinations for your excursions:
- Palace Benrath
One of the most beautiful garden palaces of the 18th century is located in the South of Düsseldorf. Today, the ensemble is regarded as one of the rare artistic works of the Rococo.
In addition to the visit of the main castle (Corps de Logis), which with its exhibits (furniture, porcelains, paintings etc.) gives an impression of the court life of the second half of the 18th century, a visit to the "Museum of natural history" and the "Museum of European Gardening" in the west and east wing of the castle is advisable. The baroque park adjoining the banks of the Rhine is also worth a day trip.
- Tonhalle Düsseldorf
The Tonhalle Düsseldorf, is a concert hall in Düsseldorf. It is located on the northside of the old town on the banks of the Rhine and forms the southern end of the cultural forum Ehrenhof. Her foyer, the Green Vault, is today one of the most beautiful examples of expressionist architecture.
The Tonhalle Düsseldorf is one of Germany's largest concert halls and offers its audience a varied program. The broad spectrum is mainly based on two pillars: on the one hand the classical concerts and on the other cabaret performances.
- Art collection North Rhine Westphalia
The Art collection North Rhine Westphalia is the art collection of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia in the state capital of Düsseldorf. It combines three exhibition venues: the K20 at Grabbeplatz 5, the K21 in the "Ständehaus" in the "Ständehausstraße" and the "Schmela-Haus" in Mutter-Ey-Straße 3. With major works by, among others, Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse and Piet Mondrian as well as the comprehensive collection of about 100 drawings and paintings by Paul Klees, the art collection in its permanent collection opens up a unique view of the Classical Modernism. Works by Jackson Pollock, Frank Stella or Pop Art by Robert Rauschenberg, Jasper Johns or Andy Warhol are part of the American post-war art. Further information:www.kunstsammlung.de
