The prestigious Palais Wittgenstein (Wittgenstein Palace), with its magnificent façade, stands near the Rhine in the Carlstadt neighborhood. Built in 1790, the house was originally used as a wine shop. Over the decades its ownership changed, and in 1874, Prince Alexander zu Sayn-Wittgenstein bought the beautiful building. The gateway, designed by Paul Bogus, is especially striking and impressive. The historic structure at Bilker Strasse 7 was severely damaged during the Second World War. In the 1970s, the exterior façade was rebuilt and the interior was completely modernized, and in 1976 the building was opened to the public as a cultural center. Today, concerts are held in the chamber music hall, and the building is home to the Düsseldorf Marionette Theater, which delights young and old with its performances. The Institut Français is devoted to French culture, and there is an in-house cafeteria where you can enjoy coffee and cakes. The cafeteria opens an hour before show time and during intermissions.
