Built 1925-1926 by Wilhelm Kreis as "Rheinhalle", a planetarium and multi-purpose hall as a part of the "Ehrenhof" complex of the Düsseldorf tradefair area (which was originally built for the 1926 "Gesolei - Gesundheitspflege, soziale Fürsorge und Leibesübungen" exposition). Severly damaged in World War II. Re-opened 1954 as a multi-purpose hall. 1975-1978 converted to a concert hall by Helmut Hentrich (acoustics consultant: Heinrich Keilholz). Re-opened 1978 as "Tonhalle". Home to the "Düsseldorfer Symphoniker" orchestra. 1933 seats.

The "Grünes Gewölbe" brick caves of the original Rheinhalle have survived all rebuildings. They are currently used for art exhibitions by the Düsseldorf Kunstmuseum.
