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.

At the museum

All exhibition spaces in NRW-Forum Düsseldorf are wheelchair-accessible. A lift leads to the upper floor. Wheelchair-accessible restrooms are located on the ground floor. The bistro-restaurant “Caffè NRW-Forum” on the ground floor is likewise accessible. Assistance dogs are always welcome.

Bistro & restaurant

Dear Guests,

The catering service at NRW-Forum has a new operator - eat the beat GmbH.

In the next four weeks we will be gradually putting our new ideas and our concept into practice. The café is undergoing renovation but it will remain open with a reduced menu for you.

At the beginning of May, the foyer will then be remodelled and, on 18 May, the new restaurant will open.  We are looking forward to a great new era at and together with the NRW-Forum and its guests and visitors.

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.
