The Area: The Wellem is part of the Andreas Quartier, a former courthouse dating to 1913 in grand classic style. Located in the Altstadt (Old Town) district, the hotel is located nearby the Rhine River embankment and Königsallee, the city’s most prestigious street that is home to high-end retailers and theaters.
The DNA: The property is named after Jan Wellem, who together with his wife Anna Maria Luisa of the House of Medici significantly impacted Düsseldorf to become the center of culture and fine arts that it is today. In the spirit of its namesake, The Wellem is home to an impressive collection of contemporary art displayed throughout the property and within guest suites, including works from internationally renowned artists such as Jeff Koons, HA Schult, and Julian Schnabel. Guests have access to the hotel’s exclusive private Art Concierge, who can introduce guests to the masterpieces on display within the property and also offer tours at the nearby museums and art galleries including the K20 art collection and the Arts Academy of the city of Düsseldorf. The hotel boasts three restaurants where guests can enjoy some of Germany’s culinary highlights or indulge in the tastes and flavors of the Mediterranean.
