The exhibition is being built on the "Dreieck Reuterkaserne" triangle in close proximity to the castle square.

Enjoy the enchanting view of the Rhine river in the "METRO unboxed" pop-up restaurant or climb the "Supersymbol" to experience a unique view over Düsseldorf's Old Town.


"METRO unboxed" opens its doors on 13 September 2017 in the afternoon.

In the following three weeks, until 2 October 2017, you can immerse yourself in the world of METRO.



On July 13, the new METRO was launched on the stock market - a good opportunity to celebrate with the hometown of Düsseldorf and to say thank you.

As a longtime partner of the düsseldorf festival! METRO is therefore looking forward to contributing this year with its own exhibition at the renowned cultural festival. In a fascinating temporary building visitors will have the opportunity to "unbox" the internationality, innovative power and passion of the wholesale and food specialist in a sensory journey.

During these three weeks, the exhibition is home to various events, from showcookings to panel discussions to poetry slams. Updates of the respective events can be found here or at Twitter (@METRO_NEWS).


You can either take part in guided tours through our exhibition, or explore the world of METRO on your own. For this, we provide you with audio guides in six languages (German, English, French, Spanish, Turkish and Japanese).
