PONG is coming!

The transformation at the NRW-Forum has not been completed yet. Until everything is ready for you to enjoy, we offer you a menu with selected dishes and drinks. In the meantime, you can look forward to September 1st: This is when we will - with a loud PONG - fuse pop culture and gastronomy to an exciting unity!

Soda München03


Having already opened stores in Berlin and Munich, on 2 February, Sebastian Steinacker will be opening his third soda books branch here at the NRW-Forum Düsseldorf.  Soda stands for visual culture and free inspiration, for a careful selection of international titles and aesthetic visual quality. The new shop will provide a broad selection of books and magazines from all fields of fashion, photography, architecture and design and will also have unknown, elaborately produced and exceptional publications on its shelves. 


Parking on the Rhine banks (Tonhallenufer) across from NRW-Forum Düsseldorf / Tonhalle Düsseldorf. Access via the ramp next to the Rheinterrassen (approx. 500 metres north of NRW-Forum Düsseldorf). Multi-storey car park on the corner of Ratinger Str. / Heinrich-Heine-Allee, underground car parks underneath the E-on headquarters and Victoria Insurance buildings.

Directions and parking

The wheelchair-accessible entrance is located on the corner of Joseph-Beuys-Ufer / Oederallee (on the Rhine side, next to the Tonhalle Düsseldorf). Please ring the bell. We will come and open the door for you. Right outside the accessible entrance is the employee parking area, which you are welcome to use. The area can be accessed only via Oederallee. Please note that the number of parking spots is limited, but drop-offs and pick-ups are always possible.
