The Grabbe Square was named after Christian Dietrich Grabbe, a dramatist of the early 19th century, who collaborated with Carl Immerman at the Düsseldorfer theater for a short time. Even two museums line the Grabbe Square: The K20 Art Collection was designed by the Danish architects Dissing and Weitling. It shines with a rolling facade of polished black granite. The focus of the exhibitions is on 20th century paintings. On the other side of the square is the architecturally plain Kunsthalle (art hall), which has no collection of its own. The program consists of thematically varying exhibitions with a focus on contemporary art. The baroque St. Andrews Church at the west side of the Grabbe Square contains the mausoleum of Jan Wellem.
