It is a must for architecture lovers: The MedienHafen in Düsseldorf shines with big names. The star architect Frank O. Gehry created a real Düsseldorf landmark with the three-part, organically designed building ensemble Neuer Zollhof.
David Chipperfield, Joe Coenen, Steven Holl and Claude Vasconi also contributed to the fact that a tour through the former abandoned harbour area is now a highlight for tourists. The foresight of the city, which opted not to rehabilitate the whole land area, but rather to introduce new usage on an individual plot by plot basis, has had great results. The MedienHafen is home to more than 700 companies and some of the best and most popular restaurants in the city. For those who want to delve deeper into the world of the MedienHafen, a tour operated by Düsseldorf Tourismus GmbH is recommended.
