London – a land of plenty? In the Cockaigne overture, Edward Elgar immortalises the British capital city very much in his own, onomatopoeic way. He describes it as “cheerful and Londony…honest, healthy, humorous and strong, but not vulgar”.
The London trip is followed by a romantic violin concerto which allows plenty of opportunity for displaying the highest virtuosity. Julius Conus himself performed the solo part at the first performance. Here, the soloist is the Dutch violinist Lisa Jacobs, who will make her – at times elegiac, at times virtuoso and always technically sophisticated –debut in Wuppertal.
Ludwig van Beethoven’s fourth symphony is overshadowed by the “Eroica” on one side and the renowned “Fifth” on the other: Robert Schumann described it as a “slim Greek maiden between two Northern giants”; but hidden in the seemingly light and unassuming fourth symphony is a lot of Beethoven’s great artistry!

Worth Knowing For Your Visit

  • Performance Venue Grosser Saal

    The event is taking place in the Großer Saal, the heart of the Historische Stadthalle. Its famous acoustics, spectacular sense of space under a ceiling that is 17 metres high, its décor and galleries take one’s breath away time and again.

Corona update

The FAQs for visitors and event organisers should answer questions concerning your visit or event organisation.

Directions

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.

Accessibility

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.
