Red Dot Design Museum

Situated on the grounds of the Zollverein World Heritage Site in Essen is the Red Dot Design Museum, a parade example of industrial heritage and the transformation the Ruhr Area is going through. A highlight for your city break!

The Red Dot Design Museum, with more than 1,500 exhibits, is believed to be the largest exhibition of contemporary design in the world. A particularly impressive characteristic is the interplay between the design exhibit and the historical building at the Zollverein World Heritage Site in Essen.

Over an exhibition space of over 4,000 square metres, only current products are now displayed, commodities the visitors may recognise many of, and of which they may even have one or the other at home. What makes this exhibit different from other everyday articles, however, is a very special characteristic: good design.

For friends of modern design, the Red Dot Design Museum is one of the highlights of any trip to the Ruhr Area. A visit to the exhibition is of course perfect during a Zollverein Day, when also visiting the Zollverein World Heritage Site as an industrial monument, the new Ruhr Museum or an art gallery.
