Wallraf-Richartz Museum, Cologne

This was Cologne’s first museum, exhibiting masterpieces of medieval to early 20th-century European art.

Following the death of botanist and art collector Wallraf in 1824, Cologne adopted his huge collection and spent decades searching for a suitable place for it. After a sizable donation, a museum was finally built and opened in 1861. Initially, it shared this space with the Ludwig museum. But, after the collections grew too big, the Wallraf-Richartz was moved to a new, specially constructed building in the city centre. Here, you can see one of the most important collections of medieval art in the world. And don’t miss the works by Rubens, Rembrandt or Stefan Lochner.
