He died in 1894 in Charlottenburg. Helmholtz was a physician and a renowned scientist in the fields of physics and physiology. Among other breakthroughs he was instrumental in establishing the Young-Helmholtz theory of trichromatic color vision.

The largest German association of research institutions, the Helmholtz-Gemeinschaft Deutscher Forschungszentren, is named after him.
