Art with a cult following: the Ludwig Museum

Overlooked by majestic Cologne Cathedral, the Ludwig Museum houses a modern and contemporary art collection of international standing.

The museum was founded in 1976, when Peter and Irene Ludwig made an endowment of some 350 modern artworks. Iconic pieces such as Roy Lichtenstein's 'Maybe' and Andy Warhol's 'Brillo Boxes' can be viewed at the biggest pop art collection outside the United States, along with the world's third-largest collection of Picasso prints, sculptures and paintings, a great many works of the Russian avant garde and important examples of Surrealism, Expressionism and art from 1920s Germany.
