One of the world's best modern art museums, it boasts an impressive Picasso and Russian avant-garde collection in addition to pieces by Warhol and Lichtenstein. If you have time for just one museum in Cologne, this is it.

Prague

The first museum in the city to exhibit modern art, the Ludwig Museum was opened in the 70’s thanks to a donation of 350 pieces of art work from the Ludwig family. Besides some great pop art pieces from the likes of Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol, there is also a large collection of Picasso’s as well as Russian avant-garde paintings. The space is bright and well-laid out, as well as quite large so plan for a few hours here. In addition to the permanent collection they put on a range of good temporary exhibitions so definitely a place worth checking out.

This is a great modern art museum with a huge collection of Picasso's work. I also really loved the pop art collection - something I haven't seen much of in other museums. There are constantly changing exhibits and the architecture of the museum itself is worth checking out even if you don't head in.

The Ludwig Museum offers a wide variety of Modern art. It seems that the exhibitions change fairly often so it is worth going more than once if you visit Cologne (Koln) with a long break in between. There is currently a great exhibit up of American artists from the 1960's including many Warhol's. There is also a Picasso and surrealist installation that is excellent.

Questo museo ospita opere di due famiglie di collezionisti che hanno lasciato le loro opere alla città. Il Ludwig è diventato uno dei musei più significativi dell'arte moderna e contemporanea in Europa ed è un must per i turisti, con opere di Otto Dix, Emil Nolde e Marc Chagall e molti altri.

Das Museum Ludwig ist ein bedeutendes europäisches Museum für die Kunst der Gegenwart. Die Ausstellungen beschäftigen sich mit moderner, zeitgenössischer Kunst in Zusammenhang mit historischer Fotografie und Medien. Von Picasso zu Roy Lichtenstein kann man beeindruckende Werke des zwanzigsten und einundzwanzigsten Jahrhunderts bewundern. Wer Köln besucht sollte das Ludwig Museum auf keinen Fall verpassen!
