Kreis, who enriched Düsseldorf with the Wilhelm-Marx-Haus, the first steel skyscraper in Europe, created an elongated courtyard around which the axisymmetric archaic-monumental building with brick façades was grouped. Then as now, the Ehrenhof is a popular attraction: During the Weimar Republic, Germany's largest trade fair was held there. Today the exhibitions of two major art museums, the NRW-Forum and the Museum Kunstpalast (Art palace museum) attract culture lovers from all over the world.
