Known as Cologne’s oldest museum, that’s not the only reason for Wallraf-Richartz Museum’s shot to fame. Featuring art from 1300-1900, the museum not only represents a few legends of the arts but also the local ones. Be it the Dutch or the Flemish masters or the French impressionists (the largest collection in Germany), there are very few places that characterize art as well as the Wallraf-Richartz Museum.

The popular works of art here are The Last Judgment and The Madonna in the Rose Bower and the works of the Master of the St. Veronica, Rembrandt and Van Dyck to name a few. The exhibits are displayed chronologically, so you’ll be literally walking through the ages.

  • Great exhibitions, and lovely collection. Weekends tend to be crowded, especially in the mornings. The personnel is extremely polite and kind. The museum shop is also worth a visit.

  • It’s the best museum In Cologne! The collection has a little bit of everything from 14-20th century. What’s special about this place is that they give elaborate explanation on half of the exhibited pieces in English! Including techniques used, background knowledge of the author and the artwork itself. Besides, they provide a detailed art history introduction on the works exhibited in every room, it’s almost like reading a textbook! I spent 5 hours there and barely read through everything. It’s a really enlightening and interesting museum.

  • A world-class museum that deserves to be much better known. Strengths are Renaissance German altarpieces and 19th century paintings, but there are excellent holdings from other periods as well. The Rubens painting of St. Francis receiving the stigmata is one of my favorites. The room of German Renaissance altarpieces (there are a dozen) is sublime and worth a journey all by itself. Most highly recommended.

  • Worth visiting if you’re in Cologne and enjoy German art. The Wallraf Richartz also has selected works of art that relate directly to Cologne, which is nice for understanding the city you are visiting or potentially living in. The three floors are organized by timeline and some of the art is truly breathtaking. I found myself standing in awe a few times. The windows of the museum also have some great views on Cologne. Don’t forget to take a look at the memorial next door.

  • Great art collection. Worth a visit if you are into impressionism.
