The Folkwang museum

There are not too many good reasons to go to Essen, Germany. One of these is the Folkwang museum located 2 km south of the city center. The museum from 1902  hosts 50.000 photographies but only 600 paintings, because 1.400 were lost during nazi times.

Exhibitions of the Folkwang are often very interesting and leading to long queues before the architecturally beautiful building. If you want to go there, you can catch a shuttle bus starting on the backside of Essen main station.
