Beethoven’s “Kreutzer Sonata”, which was made the subject of a story by the Russian poet Leo Tolstoy, plays an important role in Leoš Janáček’s String Quartet No. 1.
Hans Krása’s early string quartet is a virtuoso work with changing moods, tone qualities, tempos and rhythms, but it still forms an organic whole. In 1944, Krása composed a passacaglia and fugue for violin, viola and cello with echoes of early Arnold Schönberg and Gustav Mahler. Tchaikovsky also had role models for this String Quartet No. 2 in F major, in particular Mozart and Beethoven.

Worth Knowing For Your Visit

  • Performance Venue Mendelssohn Saal

    The event is taking place in the light-filled, airy Mendelssohn Saal, the second largest room in the Historische Stadthalle, located on the first floor.


The Historische Stadthalle is located in the heart of North Rhine-Westphalia and lies in the centre of Wuppertal-Elberfeld. We are easily reached by public transport. The ICE train station and local bus stops are in the immediate vicinity.

This is where you will find detailed directions.

Parking Flat Day Rate

Make use of our flat day rate for parking. It only costs 4 euros. One useful tip: you can pay at the pay stations in the multi-storey car park itself or in the stairwell either when you return to your vehicle or in advance of attending events. That will save you time waiting at the pay stations after the end of events.


It goes without saying that the Historische Stadthalle is equipped to provide access for disabled people.

Wheelchair ramps and lifts (with announcement) will provide you with easy access to all rooms.

Parking spaces for disabled people are available both in the multi-storey car park and in the Südstrasse car park.

Toilets for disabled people can be found on the ground floor (to the right of the main entrance) at the eastern end of the foyer. They are clearly signposted.

A wheelchair is available in the building.

An unlimited number of wheelchair places is available in the Großer Saal.

Our concierge, foyer team and culinaria staff are happy to help should you need assistance at any time.


When visiting the Historische Stadthalle coats, umbrellas as well as bags and rucksacks larger than A4 in size must be handed in at the cloakroom in the foyer. A fee of € 1.50 will be charged per item of clothing while any bags will incur an additional € 0.50.

Service Point

Just come to our Service Point before a concert or event. You can find it in the foyer on the far left of the main entrance next to the cloak room.

  • You can buy programmes here.
  • You can rent special seats for children here for a deposit of 10 euros. This means that junior concert goers can see what's going on without problems. The Service-Point will return the deposit to you when you give back the seat.
  • You can book cheap shared taxis here for 9.50 euros per person. For many concerts and events taking place in the Großer Saal, we offer you a convenient collective taxi service. Before concerts, between 7 pm and 8 pm and during the interval, you can book your trip home at the collective taxi desk in the Wandelhalle (Foyer). After the concert, the collective taxi desk will direct you to „your“ driver, who will take no more than four passengers to their homes in comfort.

Fair Play

If you happen to be late for a concert, you won’t have to miss out on it completely. In such cases, staff from the foyer team are there to assist you. They will ensure that you can get into the room without disturbing the other guests and the performers.


Before the start of the event and in the intervals, Culinaria Catering provides refreshments at the bar.
The “Rossini Restaurant” on the lower ground floor is open after events in the Großer Saal (as well as two hours before events that begin in the Großer Saal at 7.30 or 8 pm). Reservations are advisable under Tel: +49 202 870565-0.
