What to expect

One of the main attractions of the city of Düsseldorf is the new Wehrhahn line. The design concept for the six underground stations was developed and realized by the netzwerkarchitekten Darmstadt and the artists Heike Klussmann (Pempelforter Straße), Ursula Damm (Schadowstraße), Ralf Brög (Heinrich-Heine-Allee), Thomas Stricker (Benrather Straße), Manuel Franke (Graf-Adolf-Platz) and Enne Haehnle (Kirchplatz) together with the engineers.

Each station has an individual character, which has painterly, sculptural, interactive, tonal or geometric qualities. The route itself was realized as an underground space continuum, similar to a snake that expands at each station.

"Art and Magic in a German Metro" is how the New York Times describes this spectacular subway line.

In September 2017, the Wehrhahn line was awarded the "Coda Award", a prize for art and design objects, in the "Transport" category.

These six new underground stations are served by the subway: Pempelforter Strasse/Schadowstrasse/Heinrich-Heine-Allee/Benrather Strasse/Graf-Adolf-Platz/Kirchplatz (last stop).
