A dome with impressive acoustics, 2,000 seats and 21 mirrors. You will never forget this Planetarium of Music.
Wilhelm Kreis was one of 20th-century Germany’s most important architects. He was also one of the most controversial figures, as his political activism gave him the reputation of being a Nazi. Built in 1925, the Planetarium of Music, or Tonhalle, is one of his most famous works, and is one of Düsseldorf’s most original and symbolic buildings. Far from what its name suggests, this iconic building is one of the city’s most important concert venues. At 38 metres tall, its dome houses an event hall with 2,000 seats and impressive acoustics. The building’s interior itself is breath-taking, with its light fixtures and enormous ceiling. At the centre of the dome, you will find an interesting blue reflecting ornament, surrounded by 21 mirrors that slowly turn throughout the day. If you are also looking to see a live performance, don’t miss out on this visit.
