Where a few years ago disused storage halls emanated an atmosphere of bleakness, there is now the "MedienHafen", arguably Düsseldorf’s most interesting urban development project. A tour of the MedienHafen will show you that Düsseldorf is developing at a fiercely dynamic rate. As recently as some twenty years ago, the area was dominated primarily by warehouses- today, the district is in a state of permanent change. Home to numerous media and advertising companies, the MedienHafen is one of the liveliest places in Düsseldorf.
Part of the tour's attraction is also the various examples of outstanding architecture: the twisted buildings designed by the American Frank O.Gehry are as spectacular as the open design of the Landtag (state parliament) is symbolic, while the Rhine Tower is literally a cut above the rest.
