Düsseldorf Skyline

30 comments
We are very happy to present our project, the “Düsseldorf Skyline”.

Total piece count: 508
Model Dimension: 29 cm x 5,5 cm x 18,5 cm

There are many Lego Skylines on the market, but we always missed a skyline of our hometown Düsseldorf.
Düsseldorf is the capital city of North Rhine-Westphalia, the most populous state of Germany. It is the second-largest city in the state and the seventh-largest city in Germany.

By playing with the kids Lego we continuously developed our idea of a Düsseldorf skyline. And finally we completed this version which in our opinion is great for the Lego series Architecture.
The skyline includes 8 buildings and features the river Rhein, which is a famous landmark in Germany and West of Europe.

By building the set we focused especially on the scale of every building and that the proportion of every building fits to each other.
  1. The building to the left is the “Dreischeibenhaus” which was built in 1957 as the head quarter of the international company Thyssen AG. Today it includes office space and a hotel. The building divides into three against each other positioned segments.
  2. Next to this is the “ARAG Tower” which is the head quarter of the insurance company ARAG SE.
  3. In front of the Arag Tower, we have positioned the city hall of Düsseldorf including the statue of Jan-Wellem (Duke of Düsseldorf 1658 – 1716)
  4. To the right of the city hall; the Düsseldorf Arena is a multi-functional soccer stadium which is the home stadium of the club Fortuna Düsseldorf. The stadium holds 54,600 and has a retractable roof.
  5. Between the Arena and the Rhine Tower; the Mannesmann building is an essential part of the Düsseldorf Skyline.
  6. The Rhine Tower is a s a 240.5 metre-high concrete telecommunications tower houses a revolving restaurant and an observation deck. It is the tallest building in Düsseldorf. As a special attraction, a light sculpture on its shaft works as a clock. The light sculpture on the Rhine Tower is the largest digital clock in the world.
  7. Behind the Rhine Tower we have positioned the “Oberkassler Bridge” which connects the urban areas of Düsseldorf on both sides of the river Rhine.
  8. Directly at the river Rhine is the “Schlossturm” located. This tower was part of the old castle of Düsseldorf which burned down in 1872.
