Art along the Rhine

There is nothing better than a break in one of the numerous artistic centres along the EV15, for recharging batteries and resourcing the mind. The Chur Museum of Fine Art, the modern art museum in Rolandseck, the Tomi Ungerer Museum in Strasbourg, the Design museum in Weil-am-Rhein, the museums in Basel and Bonn... there is something for everyone!

  • Rolandseck: Arp Museum

    Rolandseck railway station has always been more than just a station. Right from its inauguration in 1858, it has always been a focal point for artists and intellectuals. Since September 2007, it has formed a part of a new museum on the Rhine - the "Arp-Museum Bahnhof Rolandseck". Built on the banks of the river in the town of Remagen, the museum of contemporary art has four floors of exhibition space devoted to the Alsatian painter and sculptor Hans Arp and his wife Sophie Taeuber-Arp, who were involved in the rise of the Dada and surrealist movements in the early 20th century. Paintings from the Middle Ages right up to the modern day are also on display.

  • Bonn: The Museum Mile

    Attracting over one million visitors every year, Bonn's Museum Mile is a must for all lovers of art and culture. The Museum of the History of the Federal Republic of Germany (Haus der Geschichte) presents the country's contemporary history by means of photographs, documents and original objects from recent German history. The Fine Art Museum (Kunstmuseum Bonn) exhibits Rhenish expressionist works and German art from the post-war period while the Art and Exhibition Hall of the Federal Republic of Germany (Kunst- und Ausstellungshalle der Bundesrepublik Deutschland) plays host to travelling exhibitions designed to show national and international cultural trends with the inclusion of science and technology. The Alexander Koenig Museum is one of the top zoological museums in Germany. Finally, the Bonn German Museum presents the milestones of scientific discovery over the past 50 years. It boasts around 100 original items, from the magnetic rail ‘Transrapid' train to the Nobel Prize winning ion trap.

  • Napoleon Museum of the Arenenberg Castle

    Overlooking the lower part of Lake Constance, the Arenenberg castle was the main residence of the former Queen Hortense of Holland and her son, Prince Louis Napoleon, future Napoleon III, who spent his adolescence in this castle while studying at Augsburg, Bavaria. Beneath its appearance as a country manor, the Arenenberg castle does not give any clues as to the treasures hidden within. Visitors can discover a whole series of remarkable furniture and decoration in First Empire, Biedermeier and Second Empire styles, completed by an exceptional collection of artwork. It is the only museum devoted to the history of Napoleon in a Germany-speaking country.

  • Chur: Graubünden Museum of Fine Arts

    Housed in Villa Planta, which was built in 1874-75 by the architect Johannes Ludwig, the Museum of Fine Arts in Chur is home to works of art predominantly by Swiss or Graubünden artists and sculptors from the 18th century to the present day. On display are works by, amongst others, Alberto Giacometti, Giovanni Segantini and Ernst Ludwig Kirchner.
