Once or twice a year, every time we visit Köln, we don't miss this museum of Modern Art. The architecture of the building (large and still cosy with nice views from windows, the collection and the spectacular exhibitions make worth every visit.

Situated right next to the Cathedral in a fantastic modern building that you only appreciate once inside. Laid out over 3 large floors. I would allow 2 or 3 hours to do it justice. Entrance is at c11 euro each. Firstly, this is what people...More

This museum has a diverse, high quality modern collection. Several beautiful exhibitions, each compact and complete on its theme. Some exiting photography exhibitions among them, but also a nice collection of Picasso ceramics (my favorite).

Excellent art museum, beautiful buildings with views of the city, exquisite art, well explained and documented. I would recommend to focus on German and world art of the first half of the 20th century and the Picasso section.

The Ludwig has a fantastic diverse collection of art and photographs. I did not have nearly enough time in one afternoon to see everything I wanted to. The special exhibitions were particularly good. I look forward to returning!
