If you're not yet familiar with Rhenish expressionism, you will be after a visit to Kunstmuseum Bonn, which features the largest collection of it in the world. This art museum's other specialties are post-war German art and international post-war prints. Look for the work of Joseph Beuys, Robert Delaunay, Anselm Kiefer, and Blinky Palermo, among others. The museum's remarkable architecture features "flowing space," achieved through ample light and large, open areas. Pay attention to the museum’s staircase, which has been described as "precise geometry, cut like jewelry." The onsite cafe with outdoor terrace serves breakfast, lunch, and cake.

    Specialized in German modern art since the beginning of the 20th century to the present day, it holds within its walls a small but valuable collection that a lover of art should not miss. The city of Bonn is perhaps not touristically attractive, but if you're in the area (I was in Aachen) worth the trip. The most interesting thing is the room dedicated to the ill-fated expressionist painter August Macke. You can also find a pair of works by Robert Delaunay and Alexej Jawlensky. If modern art is not your thing, but if you love, visit him not to go.

    I wish there had been more different kinds of art. It was mostly modern, which isn't my personal favorite. It was still worth it!  more »

    Had only a short time. But it's worth to go very here. I hope that I have more time next time.
