Museums

Museum Ludwig
In the late 1960s, Irene and Peter Ludwig assembled the largest collection of pop
art outside of the USA and donated a large part to the City of Cologne. This was
the basis for founding Museum Ludwig in 1976. In addition to pop art, the Ludwigs gave the museum a comprehensive collection of works by the Russian avantgarde from 1906 to 1930 as well as several hundred works by Pablo Picasso on
permanent loan. With more than 180 original pieces and 730 graphic works, Museum Ludwig meanwhile harbours the third-largest Picasso collection worldwide.

Built above the remains of the Roman town villa with the world-famous Dionysos
mosaic, the Rmisch-Germanisches Museum houses objects relating to the art, culture and everyday life of Roman and early medieval Cologne. Highlights are one of the
worlds largest collections of Roman glass, including the three-coloured carved cage
cup (c.AD 330/340), and the miniature portrait of Emperor Augustus made of turquoise-green glass. The art of the migrating Germanic tribes and Eurasian nomads in
the early Middle Ages is represented by a selection of precious jewellery, for both men
and women a portable form of wealth in the Migration Period. The Rmisch-Germanisches Museum has one of the richest collections of such early European artefacts.

Kthe Kollwitz Museum Kln

Art Museum of the Archbishopric of Cologne


The collection ranges from late antiquity to the present day, from Romanesque
sculpture to spatial installations, from medieval panel painting to radical painting, from Gothic ciborium to articles of everyday use from the twentieth century. The search for an overarching order, based on measure, proportion and beauty
is the linking element in artistic design and the guiding principle.

The first Kthe Kollwitz museum worldwide was opened on 22 April 1985, the
40th anniversary of the artists death. The museums collection includes both
the artists entire sculptural work and over three hundred drawings, almost 600
print graphics and all her posters. War, poverty and death but at the same time
love, security and the struggle to achieve peace are the themes to which she
gives graphic expression in her works. The permanent exhibition provides new
insights into the life and art of Kthe Kollwitz. Fascinating special exhibitions
and a varied programme of events await visitors of all ages at this remarkable
monographic museum.
