If you like post 1900 modern art and sixties pop art, this museum is it. It has one of the largest Picasso collections in Europe. Ditto Warhol. Named after a chocolate millionaire, not a musician. Gift store.

The Ludwig has a collection of modern art including impressionism, cubism and other styles. There are Warhols, Picassos and more. The building is lovely - very light and spacious - and right next to the Cathedral and station, so easy to get to.

The building is amazing and as well the collection. I came with not much expectation and I had a very good surprise. If you like this kind of art, you should not leave Cologne without visiting it!

This museum of modern art is pretty vast. We got here at 1600 and we're told it would close at 1800. We therefore had to maintain a constant walking pace in order to cover everything the attraction had to offer. We literally just managed to...More
