The Ludwig Museum is perhaps my favorite location in Cologne, even if I am not passionate about modern art. It is a beautifully designed building, and its expositions are always interesting and well designed.

This museum is way better than I imagined. It has a large collection of works by Picasso, and also some of the most widely known Pop-Artists like Liechtenstein. Will not be disappointed by going there.
