  • Excellent modern art collection in great architecture. We liked the cafe as well, it’s possible to have a drink and hop back into your visit. Terraces are great to catch a view over the dome and get some fresh air. Basement has changing collection. All together great place for a 3-4 hour visit, highly recommend.
  • A nice surprise of a museum in Cologne. Great collection of various modern art pieces well worth a visit. Three floors of art in a great space next to the Cathedral. Consider a museum pass if you plan to visit here and another couple museums.
