WOLF OF WALL STREET

For our photographer Sabrina Weniger, tiny Wallstraße
in the heart of the old town perfectly reflects the native and true Düsseldorf: a bit rough and eccentric, a bit chic and elegant, a bit old and dirty and most of all: with its heart in the right place. Even though it’s located directly in the city centre, it is easily overlooked.

Wallstraße is a historic place — it was built on the former city wall in the second half of the 17th century. That’s where the name comes from. The street has its own microcosm with all its different people from all over the world living and working here. Neighbourly support is taken very seriously here, everybody looks out for each other. Although there are four Italian restaurants within a stone throw of each other, there is no rivalry between them. Sabrina Weniger met the Wallstreet people — and shows her love for this unique street in the following photo series.
