Culture

More than 20 museums, 100 art galleries and approximately 20 theaters. These numbers clearly prove the cultural richness of Düsseldorf, a city that preserves the past, but surrenders daily to new forms of artistic creation

The richness of the artistic heritage of Düsseldorf is intimately tied to his patron, Jan Weller, who was influenced by his second wife, Luisa de Medici, who created structures for the city to become one of the largest art centers in the world. More than 300 years after the collections of the Art Museum of North Rhine-Westphalia (www.kunstsammlung.de), the Kunst Place Museum (www.smkp.de) and NRW-Forum (www.nrw-forum.de) are proof that this tradition was not lost. Photography is one of the most representative arts, even because from the Becher School in Dusseldorf, came out names such as Thomas Ruff, Thomas Struth, Andreas Gursky and Candida Höfer. The Academy of Arts (www.kunstakademie-duesseldorf.de), with about 1800 students, ensures the renewal of the artistic panorama, creating and promoting new talents. The concert halls, which include theaters and concert halls, go beyond two dozen and include several areas, thus reaching an increasing number of people. Among the most important is the Capitol Theatre (www.capitol-theater.de), the largest in the city, with a capacity for 1250 people and the Schauspielhaus (www.duesseldorfer-schauspielhaus.de) with four stages and that also works as an experimental theater. The opera has a regular schedule in the Deutsche Oper am Rhein (www.rheinoper.de) and there are still a number of small places such as the Cabaret Kom (m) ödchen (www.kommoedchen.de) or Komödie (www.komoedie-duesseldorf. com), with shows that are mostly aimed to the general public.
