Art in public space

Stations of the Wehrhahn line

Heinrich-Heine-Allee ,  40213 Düsseldorf

The love of art is deeply rooted in Düsseldorf. How deep it goes can be seen not least on the Wehrhahn line, an underground line jointly developed by architects, artists, engineers and the city administration in the centre of Düsseldorf.

An overall concept was developed in close cooperation: The underground tunnel as a “subterranean space continuum” that winds through the earth like a giant snake. Wherever the tunnel widens, in the six stations, art enters the scene. For each of the new stations of the Wehrhahn line, which leads from the S-Bahn station Wehrhahn to the S-Bahn station Bilk, various artists have created picturesque, geometric, sculptural, interactive and tonal elements.
