Gothic U-shaped building, erected in the 16th century. The building is five floors made of pink brick, and is decorated with a tower with a tent. Once inside the tower, you can climb up the spiral staircase. In previous years, an art gallery was located in the Old Town Hall, craft and trade warehouses and workshops worked. Like five centuries ago, today the building plays the role of the residence of the burgomaster.
The current building was erected to replace the wooden temple of the 8th century. It was with the construction of this attraction that the Christianization of Dusseldorf began. The view that the basilica now has, it received by decision of the Duke William the First. By the way, then she was named after the Mother of God. If you do not know where to go in Dusseldorf, but are passionate about architecture, come here. You can look at the stained glass windows with rose petals (the symbol of the Virgin Mary), a unique portal, bronze knights and a high spire with an offset axis.
This 240-meter tower is the tallest building in the city, and adorns with its appearance many magnets, postcards and other souvenirs. Representatives of television and radio companies are open inside the building. If you want to see all the interesting places in Düsseldorf at a time, buy a ticket to the Reynurm observation deck. Together with a restaurant with panoramic windows, it is located at the level of 174 meters, and rotates slowly. No less interesting will be the inspection of huge decimal watches, consisting of numerous LEDs. A modern lighting system is built into the base of the tower.
Like many other attractions in Germany, this one appeared thanks to the efforts of a private collector. A. Kippenberg handed over to his daughter the most valuable rarities, which formed the basis of the current exhibition - folios, manuscripts, personal belongings of the famous thinker and writer. To create a museum, an ancient castle was chosen, surrounded by a blossoming park complex. In the 18th century, the building gradually fell into disrepair, was subjected to raids and robberies. Many priceless specimens disappeared without a trace. A modern museum with a reading room and a library has preserved the atmosphere of the Goethe era. Its visitors can see a collection of coins, paintings, porcelain, antique furniture.
