Art Venues in Düsseldorf

From old masterpieces to the contemporary

Written by Garry on

 

Interest in the arts is extremely strong in Düsseldorf and, fortunately, this holds true amongst those making the descisions on a local and state level. Patronage is also high in the region.

This results in strong public subsidies as well as private sponsoring of highly diverse art venues and art museums in Düsseldorf. The state capital boasts one of the most lively and art worlds in Europe and beyond. Impressive collections go hand in hand with inspiring exhibitions, sometimes of global significance.

Art venues can be found in many downtown locations in a large variety of premises. Whether underground, in the old parliament building, modern or dated concrete boxes, the choice is vast and just as diverse.

Various actors and premises involved in art in Düsseldorf have been gathered together under the banner Art in Dusseldorf by the city authorities.
