Stadttor (English: City gate) is a 20-storey 84 m (276 ft) skyscraper in Unterbilk neighborhood of Düsseldorf, Germany. The building was designed by Düsseldorf-based architecture firm Petzinka, Overdiek und Partner and completed in 1998. It marks the Southern entrance of Rheinufertunnel, which is also reason for its parallelogram-shaped floor plan.

The building features a 15-story atrium and a double-facades, allowing natural ventilation even on higher elevation floors. The total gross floor area is some 30,000 m2 (320,000 sq ft) .[4] Since 1999, the Stadttor is seat of the state-chancellery of the Prime ministers of North Rhine-Westphalia.
