Classical Music in Düsseldorf

As a former planetarium the Tonhalle has always trained the spotlight on the stars. Today it’s the Düsseldorf Symphony Orchestra and the heavyweights of jazz, soul and chanson that shine beneath its ribbed metal-blue dome .

The jewel-like concert hall with its otherworldly acoustics is part of an expressionist building ensemble called the Ehrenhof, dreamed up in the 1920s by Wilhelm Kreis as an exhibition space and recast as a cultural centre in the 1970s.
