The location

NRW-Forum Düsseldorf is an international exhibition and event location. It is part of the Ehrenhof cultural centre, an expressionistic building ensemble from the 1920s and a protected monument. Centrally located in a beautiful setting adjacent to Düsseldorf’s Hofgarten park and the Rhine promenade, the complex is easy to reach via public transport. The Old Town is only a 10-minute walk away. Sufficient parking is available on the banks of the Rhine (Tonhallenufer) and the E.ON headquarters underground car park, which is open to the public from 6 pm.

The premises

NRW-Forum Düsseldorf offers several areas on the ground and first floors for your public or private functions. The rooms can be booked separately or in combination, including outside the usual opening hours. On the ground floor of NRW-Forum Düsseldorf, the foyer offers the perfect spot to welcome your guests. Directly adjacent is the bistro-style Restaurant "Caffé". The spacious terrace outside can also be used for your Event.

The first floor is accessed via two large curved staircases or by elevator. There are two large halls available here, connected by another foyer.

The “R-Forum” on the first floor is a large hall with 250 m² floor area and a 3.30-metre-high ceiling. Light-coloured parquet floors, white walls and natural daylight create a bright interior, but the hall can also be darkened if desired. The “R-Forum” can be closed off with a sliding glass door. It is approved for 200 people. The rental cost per day is 950 EUR (plus VAT).

The “K-Forum” on the first floor is likewise a hall with a floor area of 250 m2 and a height of 3.30 metres. Like the “R-forum”, it has pale parquet flooring, white walls and natural daylight. It can also be closed off with a sliding glass door. The “K-Forum” can however also be partitioned down the middle with sliding doors. It thus offers two areas for 100 persons each, one of which can be fully darkened – particularly well-suited for multimedia presentations. The rental cost per day is 950 EUR (plus VAT).

The first-floor foyer has a floor area of approx. 100 m² and a ceiling height of 4.60 metres. It connects the “R-Forum” and “K-Forum” and is ideal as a catering zone.
