Museum Ludwig, Köln

Weekends are gloomy and sometimes when sun is out, we don’t wanna miss going out at all. So, mom and the baby often pack their bag ( ya, she can’t tk her own yet!) and go take the first train they catch to somewhere. Last Sunday started sunny and I took a small baggy for her milch and my purse and put warm clothes on Ellie and took the travel buggy. First we go to a station nearby which seems deserted , so I read the notification on the door, which read something like this : “Aufgrund von Wartungsarbeiten sind die Dienste von RE8 & bla bla bis April geschlossen oder unterbrochen. Entschuldigen Sie die Unannehmlichkeiten!” Frustrated we walk here and there and then hop on a bus to the main station. Till then, we dont know where we are going. Then we board the train standing in Platform 1 and while sitting in the train, decide to visit Museum Ludwig as the train will go to Köln. Museum Ludwig is the home for Eu­rope’s most ex­ten­sive col­lec­tion of Pop Art, the third-largest Pi­cas­so col­lec­tion in the world and one of the most im­por­tant col­lec­tions of Ger­man Ex­pres­sion­ism. All by the contributions of pri­vate ci­t­izens. The corn­er­s­tone for the found­ing of the mu­se­um was laid in 1976 with a do­na­tion of 350 works of mod­ern art to the ci­ty of Cologne by the col­lec­tors Peter and Irene Lud­wig and art lovers are contributing the tradition.

Practical Information : The museum is located at walking distance from the Köln central station, by the side of the beautiful Köln cathedral. The ticket costs 11€ for adults and 7.5€ for students. Coats and bags are not allowed inside, but they have lockers for keeping them. No cloak room available (maybe for corona ) but some ladies are keeping the coats safe against a coupon. They dont charge money, but people can pay small tokens voluntarily. Opening hours : 10am-18pm.
