  • Apart from a passion for modern art, Ludwig has a good collection of works by Warhol, and a more than exhaustive raccolota of signed works by Picasso. One point less for the location ... soon they enter on the altar of the Duomo. The outdoor area was manned by security that prevented even to trample on the Esplanade that would have been used as a concert the next day. the back down to the banks of the Rhine. I note that inside there is a decidedly shop well stocked with books, catalogues and various material relating to works that can be seen in the Museum.

  • The architecture of the Museum in my opinion is beautiful. The Collections ... questionable. Really nothing Flash. Mediocre contemporary, modern only minor and remnants of large warehouse. Me they did go completely empty, I would have appreciated more. In short: 11 euro spend it rather in beer that input to Ludwig.

  • A very nice collection of modern art pieces, surely worth visiting if you're in Cologne!
  • Nice museum with lots of pop-art. The guards were kinda angry though.
  • This building rivals the wonderful art it was built to provide a home for. The collections left me speechless. The staff were friendly, courteous and unobtrusive. A visit from to remember and hopefully repeat.
  • Spectacular museum. If you like expressionism you need to see it. You need at least two hours to see everything. 13€ ticket.
  • You can easily spend half of your day here. A good place for contemporary art.
