Otto’s Skybar is dedicated to the architect Otto Lindner, founder of the Lindner Group of Companies and creative designer of the Rheinsternhaus building complex in Düsseldorf, which houses the Lindner Congress Hotel at this spectacular location.
He founded his own freelance architect’s office in 1959, thereby laying the foundation stone on which his family’s successful company history was built. His five sons continue to run the business today. Otto Lindner had previously studied architecture at Idstein (Taunus district) and Wuppertal in the early 1950s. He subsequently worked for seven years at Walter Rau AG in Neuss as head of the Construction department. In 1963, the architect moved his office to his private home in Meerbusch. Since then, Otto Lindner has designed and realised numerous architectural projects. His clients include the medical professions in particular and he often works in close cooperation with the Apotheker- und Ärztebank (a German bank for pharmacists and doctors), the head office of which is a direct neighbour of the Lindner Congress Hotel – also one of his designs.
