Kulturbahnhof Eller

The station building was built of brick in 1872. In 1909, a waiting room was added. By 1975, the station building was no longer used for railway purposes, but instead it was used for artists' studios. In 1982, it had its first public exhibition, which was followed by over 100 other shows, which were attended by more than 400 artists. In 1986, Freundeskreis Kulturbahnhof Eller e.V. (Friends of the Culture Station of Eller) was founded.[4]

On 1 April 1985, the old station building was registered on Düsseldorf’s heritage list in the category of technical monuments.[5]
