After the destruction of the Kunsthalle in the Second World War, the concrete cube of the present Kunsthalle was built in 1967. Only a few parts of the old building remain, including the four caryatids next to the Kunsthalle. As one of Düsseldorf's most striking buildings, it is a rare testimony to brutalist architecture. The building was initially strongly criticised by many artists and residents of Düsseldorf because of its appearance. In the 1990s, the Kunsthalle was considered for demolition, but the Düsseldorf artists and gallery owners were determined to keep it. So it was renovated and expanded once again. Discover the artworks outside and learn more about the architecture of the former and current Kunsthalle during the guided tour.
