Düsseldorf Planetarium / Tonhalle

Designed by Wilhelm Kreis, the building was a part of 1926 GeSoLei (Düsseldorf Exhibition for Healthcare, Social Welfare and Exercise). We can see it in a photograph preserved in city archive:
In 1978, the Planetarium, famous not only for its impressive appearance but also for excellent acoustics, was converted into a concert hall and received a new name: the Tonhalle.
