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

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
