This is your date with modern art: Paul Klee, Kandinsky and Picasso are just a few examples of what you will find here.
One hundred percent cosmopolitan.
The city of Düsseldorf is considered one of the country’s most cosmopolitan cities and one of Europe’s best cultural examples. This reputation is in part due to museums, such as the K20/K21 Museum. These two centres focus on European and American modern art. The K20 building houses 20th century works, and the K21 centre houses works from the present century. Amongst its almost 90 works of art, the collection of works by Paul Klee, a Swiss painter whose career was divided between Expressionism, Surrealism and Abstract, is extremely noteworthy. His paintings have become symbolic of European modern art. However, this museum also hides away works by Kandinsky, Picasso, Beckmann and other key 20th century artists. The K20 building is located on Grabelplatz, just a stone’s throw from the river, and the K21 centre is located in Ständehaus, next to Kaiserteich Lake.
