  • The equestrian statue, which is located in the center of the city's main square, depicts voter Jan Willem. And for the locals, this figure represents a milestone significantly contribute to the development of the region. The ruling is portrayed in that time. Monument turned out to be very reliable, it transmits fine facial features and the voter figures.

  • Beautiful building
  • Gabriell Grupello created the equestrian statue representing Johann Wilhelm von Pfalz Neuburg in 1711. The Prince-elector and Duke was known in the local dialect with Jan Willem. The sculpture shows him in full armour on horseback with Crown on his head in his right hand a scroll. Artistic design is appealing, even if the face of the noble acts like no facial expressions. The base features gold lettering and ornamental plant. A classic Lance grid with Golden tips fenced the monument. The symbol of Dusseldorf is pretty to look at.

  • Equestrian statue of Johann Wilhelm (elector of the Palatinate, he is Jan Vellem). Centuries have passed, but did not love the townspeople to their ruler. Together with his second wife Anna Maria Luisa de ' Medici, from home (by the way, the last of the Medici family) he did very much for turning the city into a leading European cultural center. He dreamed of turning Düsseldorf in Versailles on the Rhine. He founded a new city, attracted to his court painters and soon opened an art gallery. When Yana Velleme allowed the first permanent ferry across the Rhine, expanded the streets and put up street lights. Maybe that's why near the monument put a chic Street lamp with Royal regalia. The bronze statue was installed at the market square (Marktplatz) near the City Hall in 1711 by the project of Italian-Flemish sculpture Gabrielom Grupello (Gabriel de Grupello). Originally it was planned that should the bottom would be even and lions, which demonstrated the flaws: greed, vanity, envy and gluttony, but this project was not implemented until the end. According to legend, the sculptor in the manufacture of the equestrian statue of was insufficient material for its manufacture, and to finish, was sent to the City boy, apprentice for Foundry work, who walked from House to House and collected donations in the form of silver spoons from wealthy djusseldorfcev. In 1964, the monument was depicted on a postage stamp.
