Neues Museum

The Neues Museum is an impressive museum for modern art at Nürnberg, Germany. It was opened in the year 2000 and shows changing exhibitions as well as works from its own collection of contemporary art which began in 1967. The museum receives a lot of donations, especially from art collectors of the region. By that for example it holds the third largest collection of works by Gerhard Richter. You can also discover works by Joseph Beuys, Neo Rauch, and Andy Warhol.

The architecture of the building is spectacular but also don’t miss the publicly accessible sculpture garden outside behind the ancient city walls. Getting to the Neues Museum is really simple: it is in close vicinity to the main railway station of Nürnberg (but not directly visible from the entrance). Just cross the bridge, pass through the Frauentor city gate and after 200 meters you will see it at the Klarissenplatz.
