Bergerkirche (Evangelical church)

Berger Straße 18b, 40213 Düsseldorf

It is somewhat hard to find and can only be reached via the courtyard of Berger Strasse 18. Nevertheless, the Bergerkirche is an important monument in Düsseldorf.

In 1687 it was consecrated as the first Lutheran church in the city, its location in a courtyard stems from the fact that Lutherans were only tolerated in the re-catholicised Düsseldorf at the time. Not least, the interior design of the well-known Frankfurt artist Tobias Rehberger invites you to enter into the small hall church: Rehberger created geometrically patterned, colourful tiered wall hangings for the side walls and a white acrylic glass altar. In 2011, the Düsseldorf Psychosocial Centre erected a mourning ground for refugees and immigrants on the grounds of the church, who have no access to the graves of their relatives.
