Käthe-Kollwitz-Museum, Berlin

(4.3/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
Containing one of the largest collections of works by the German artist and pacifist Kathe Kollwitz, Käthe-Kollwitz-Museum displays more than 200 prints, drawings, posters, sculptures, and woodcuts. Opened in 1986, the museum traces its origins to art collector Hans Pels-Leusden, who bought many of the artist's works for decades and staged the first Kollwitz exhibit in 1965. Kollwitz lived in Berlin for more than 50 years and created some of her most memorable works there, including her celebrated self-portraits. The museum is inside a 19th-century villa that was partially destroyed during World War II. Be sure to explore the upper floor, which contains a 2 m (6.6 ft) statue of Kollwitz by sculptor Gustav Seitz. Our Berlin vacation route planner makes visiting Käthe-Kollwitz-Museum and other Berlin attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • I'm a huge fan of her work. Very powerful. It's a quiet museum so you can enjoy it without huge crowds.
  • More about the history and life of the artist than about exhibiting her work in a meaningful way. A good museum but not a must-see if you are in Berlin for a short time.
  • A small but well-curated tribute to a socially conscious important 20 th century Berlin artist.
  • A very small museum, to visit if you are a fan of Kathe's work.
  • Sadly only few statues rest is about story of her life
