The Wallraf invites you to come face to face with great masterpieces of European art. The museum has one of the most important collections of medieval art worldwide.

Other highlights are Baroque painting with works by Rubens, Rembrandt, Tiepolo and Boucher, German Romanticism and French painting of the 19th century.

In the paintings of the Fondation Corboud the museum has the most extensive collection of Impressionist and Neo-Impressionist art in Germany. Manet, Monet, Renoir, Pissarro, Sisley, Morisot, Signac and Seurat are all represented with outstanding works. Van Gogh, Cézanne, Gauguin, Bonnard, Ensor and Munch herald in modernism. Experience the modern design of this important gallery.

The impressively clear lines of the building by the Cologne star architect Oswald Mathias Ungers (1926-2007) was opened in 2001.
