An important civic building.
The Jagërhof Palace, along with Benrath Palace, is one of Düsseldorf’s most important monumental civic buildings. Jagërhof Palace houses information on various fundamental chapters in the history of the city. Firstly, it was built during the 18th century as a seasonal residence for the country’s leaders. However, it is said to have been plundered years later by insurgent troops, and was declared in ruins until 1811, when Napoleon discovered it. It was renovated and became inhabitable once again. Among many of its present-day functions, it houses the Goethe Museum. This exhibition displays a large handful of manuscripts, personal objects and works related to the author. Interestingly, this is also where you will find Napoleon’s hill, which is home to a tribute to Heine.
