Cologne – MJ Top 5

Updated: Apr 14, 2020

Cologne is an important German city and one that I’ve had on my list for a long time now. Since, similarly to Mainz, it is a 2.5h drive from Luxembourg, I decided to finally visit it over the weekend.

Although I have mixed feelings, here are my Top 5 things to-do in Cologne:

1. Ludwig Museum

Wonderful modern art Museum! Start with the top floor where you’ll see a number of Great Masters, including the whole room dedicated to Picasso himself. Actually, Museum Ludwig has one of the largest Pablo’s collections in Europe. You will also find Salvador Dali painting and Giacometti sculptures in one room – something that made a tremendous impression on me:


Second floor has a solid collection of Pop Art with Warhol, Lichtenstein and others. Overall the Museum is accessible, not so crowded and located close to the Cathedral. For me personally, this spot saves Cologne 🙂

Address: Heinrich-Böll-Platz, 50667 Köln, Germany &
