Sight 1: Mannesmann-Hochhaus

Show sight on map

The Mannesmann high-rise is an administrative building on Mannesmannufer in Düsseldorf's Carlstadt district. It was designed and built between 1956 and 1958 by the architects Egon Eiermann and Paul Schneider-Esleben, after they had won an architectural competition in 1954. The original client was Mannesmann AG, which was taken over by Vodafone in 2000. Hochtief was involved in the construction as general contractor. Together with the Dreischeibenhaus, it is one of the first modern high-rise buildings in Germany. It stands for the time of the so-called economic miracle, in which private companies significantly changed the city skyline of Düsseldorf with high-rise buildings in the style of post-war modernism.
