Perfectly sited near the Dom and other museums is this monumental display of contemporary and modern art. Leave plenty of time to wander the galleries.

Just behind the cathedral and easy to walk to. They exhibit art from Picasso and Warhol. You see tons of photographs and could spend an entire day here. Very nice cafe as well.

It only cost 11 euro to visit the Ludwig and it was well worth every penny and more. The place is crammed with outstanding pieces that really make you think. I spent half an hour in the pop lab colouring in so I can now...More

Well worth the visit, beautiful Museum of modern art. The range and depth of the Picasso Collection awe inspiring and the Salvador Dali and other well known artists just stunning to see them real and not in books or on the net.
