"Museum Ludwig" Wallraff-Richartz Museum/ Museum Ludwig Tip by Rupanworld


It is a very modern building just behind the Cathedral and the Römish Germanish museum and seems to some extent out of place because of this. It houses a huge collection of modern and contemporary art. It was founded in 1976 with a gift of 350 works of modern art by the Ludwigs and became the first museum in Cologne to exhibit contemporary art. It houses huge collection of German, Russian and American contemporary art. This building was designed by the architects Peter Busmann and Godfried Haberer and was opened in 1986.
