Culture on the Kö
The Breidenbacher Hof, located along the Königsallee in Düsseldorf, ranks among one of the top culturally and historically significant hotels in the country. Since its opening in 1812, the hotel has not only been frequented by famous politicians and crowned heads of state from all over the world, but also by academics and stars of the classical music of the Epoch: Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy, Robert and Clara Schumann, Johannes Brahms, Herbert von Karajan, Leonard Bernstein, Maria Callas and Yehudi Menuhin.
Esteemed for the elegant and private ambience of the hotel, Breidenbacher Hof served as a prime cultural meeting location. In the 19th century, notables such as Schubert, Schumann and Chopin were drawn to appearances in elegant, intimate salons rather than those on the large stages.
At Breidenbacher Hof, we revive the salon culture. "Culture on the Kö" celebrates our rich historical past, alternating literary and musical meetings at the highest level. Experience pieces from authors and musicians through readings and toned lyric poetry from the masters.
