I've always loved Käthe Kollwitz artworks, so the museum was a must-do for me while being in Cologne. I was astonished by the size of the collection - at first, seeing the hidden elevator I expected a way smaller museum. However, the exhibition space is...More

I've always been a Kathe Kollwitz fan, and enjoyed my visit to this little gem. Although the collection is rather small, you won't be inundated by crowds making it a much more enjoyable experience. It's a modern bright clean space more representative of a gallery,...More

If you are already familiar with this artist, you know how moving her work is. A first-rate collection which is sort of hidden inside a mall (look for the banners outside the building on the Neumarkt) - take the elevator inside.

The museum is, surprisingly, located on the top floor of one of the malls of the Neumarkt shopping centre. It contains a very good collection of Kaethe Kollwitz's work . She was a significant figure in early German 20th century art . Her depiction of...More

It took us awhile to actually find this museum, even with the address and we finally had to stop and ask. It's in a small shopping mall (including a Steiff bear store, dress shops and food outlets on the ground floor). The museum is on...More

The museum is situated on top of a small shopping mall, and the light here is great and gives the drawings and the art an extra dimension. It is a small exhibition but a great experience. The fee is about 5 euros, so it is...More
