Deutschlandhaus – built in 1929 to the plans of architect Prof. Jacob Koerfer from Cologne – appears very light and dynamic with its numerous windows – entirely in the style of the "New Objectivity" movement. In the 1920s, the two-wing, six-storey structure was the tallest office building in Essen. Prof. Koerfer also designed the multi-storey building on Hansaring in Cologne. Since its renovation at the end of the 1980s, the six-storey building with its tower-like, head-end section has also been home to the shopping arcade "Lindengalerie". Deutschlandhaus also offers another attraction: It has a fully operational paternoster for you to take a ride in.
