Skyscrapers in Dusseldorf, WILHELM MARX HOUSE, 57 metre, 1922 – 1924

The Wilhelm Marx Haus (brick expressionism) is the oldest high-rise building in Dusseldorf. For a short time, it was the tallest office building in Europe. Of course, it occurred to the people of Cologne quite quickly to surpass it with another building. Due to the Persil neon sign mounted on the roof, the Wilhelm Marx Haus is visible for miles around. A few years ago, the color of this neon sign was changed from green to red. The skyscraper is built entirely with bricks and is worth seeing for that reason alone. There is a huge clock on the main tower, which doesn’t always show the correct time, or even just stands still for months at a time.
