Picture Slider: Düsseldorf Tourismus GmbH
In the redesign of the old Rhine port, unlike in other cities, Dusseldorf did not undertake any land redevelopment, but treated it property by land and adapted it to its future user. In this way, the area was not forced into a single architectural corset. Instead, internationally renowned architects such as Frank O. Gehry, David Chipperfield, Joe Coenen, Steven Holl and Claude Vasconi make their creative contribution to the overall picture. Düsseldorf Tourismus GmbH offers exciting tours through the Media Harbor.
Listed warehouses are equipped with state-of-the-art media high-tech, old rooms shine in a new outfit. Despite all the innovations, the harbor atmosphere is noticeable everywhere. The trading port with its quay walls, the staircases, the cast-iron bollards and the wrought iron railings as well as the tracks of the old loading road and the associated cranes are under monument protection.
Many companies offer high-quality services and know-how in the Media Harbor. Where a tragedy of unused halls existed only a decade ago, around 700 companies have now moved into a neighborhood, using the unique working conditions along the waterfront and benefiting from the image of the Media Harbor. Its reputation as an “architectural mile” and innovative office location serves as a figurehead: 76% of the resident companies can be found here with their headquarters.
For the “culinary” side of Dusseldorf: the media port plays in the first league: From the exquisite “Berens am Kai” with Michelin star on the “Goldigste” currywurst in Düsseldorf to a cozy cocktail in the evening – the restaurateurs have adapted to their heterogeneous clientele, which is made up of business customers during the day and funky scene walkers in the evening. In the futuristic Club 3001 with oblique 3-D visuals you will meet later to celebrate.
