Art and Culture
Düsseldorf’s roots as a city of art stretch a long way back into the past: With his engagement as a generous patron and lover of art, Jan Wellem led Düsseldorf’s evolution into a modern major city over three hundred years ago.
The outstanding art collection, which he built up with his second wife Anna Maria Luisa de' Medici, ensured that Düsseldorf became famous across Europe as a cultural center. Since then, the city of Heine and Schumann has always been at the leading edge when it comes to culture.
