Full description
Explore Düsseldorf from the perspective of Joseph Beuys, an influential figure of international contemporary art during the 20th-century. Feel his presence at the Academy of Art, on the city's facades, and in local bars. Your guide will tell the stories behind Beuys' works and how artists and the city are inspired by each other. This guided tour begins at the Johannes Rau statue in Johannes Rau Platz where you will then be taken to the Academy of Art and to the Beuys Bar. Your guide will explain why Joseph Beuys is inextricably linked with Düsseldorf. As you tour the city, listen to your guide as they provide insight on the days of student protest that also gripped art institutions. Be reminded of Beuys' legendary Rhine crossing as you view the river and stop at the Kunsthalle. See Beuys' lasting mark on brutalist art and the gallery where Beuys and Andy Warhol had their first meeting.

    Three tour was great but to redeem your voucher you had to come back at 7 pm when the bar actually opens but you did not get any confirmation for this voucher, so we didn’t went to get the drink.
