Wow, the depth, breadth, and quality of the collection, just Amazing! Great traveling exhibit also. Art that makes you THINK.

Pleasant surprise with the Ludwig Museum! Variety of modern works of great relevance: Picasso, Dalí, Miró ... The place itself is also a spectacle. Already outside the view of the towers of the Cathedral makes a perfect postcard with the modern architecture of the Museum.

It's a nice museum. They have a good Picasso collection. If you like modern art, this is the place to go. Close to the Koln main station, so if you have time before the train it takes 1h30/2h00 to see it. Only problem they have a lot of stairs.

Very nice museum with pieces that will take you through a time travel. Lots of Picasso’s, but just many other interesting artwork.

Visit here for a good collection of painting including painting of Picasso. It is near by Cologne central railway station. Currently entry fee is 11 euro (year 2019). There is also workshop organised here for painting. Approx 1 to 2 hour will be sufficient to visit here.You can submit your luggage to clock room for free before entering the museum.

Cháteau Comtal

The Château Comtal (Count’s Castle) is a medieval castle within the Cité of Carcassonne, the largest city in Europe with its city walls still intact. The Château Comtal has a strong claim to be called a 'Cathar Castle'. When the Catholic Crusader army arrived in 1209 they first attacked Raymond-Roger Trencavel's castrum at Bèziers and then moved on to his main stronghold at Carcassonne.

The castle with rectangular shape is separated from the city by a deep ditch and defended by two barbicans. There are six towers curtain walls.

The castle was restored in 1853 by the architect Eugène Viollet-le-Duc. It was added to the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites in 1997.
