K20: The K Stands For Art

Among the shopping facilities, theaters, the Rhine and other highlights, Dusseldorf also offers a lot of exciting spots for people who are interested in art.  Of course, there are a lot of galleries and let’s not forget about the Art Academy… but this is not what I would like to talk about today.  I am excited to introduce the K20 to you.  The K20 is one of my favorite museums here in Dusseldorf.

So why the name K20?  Once called the Art Collection North Rhine-Westphalia the name was changed in 2002 to better reflect its global collection of 20th Century art.  The K stands for the German word Kunst, which means art.  And of course the 20 is representative of the 20th Century.

Kultur - K20 Picasso

The collection is impressive and includes works from Pablo Picasso, Paul Klee, Andy Warhol and Jackson Pollock.  And of course Joseph Beuys, who taught at the Art Academy in Dusseldorf between 1961 and 1972 is proudly displayed.

My favorite part of K20?  It is just a 5-minute walk from Breidenbacher Hof, A Capella Hotel, making it ideal for guests looking for quick inspiration.  In fact, I’ve been known to stop by on my lunch break to marvel in its greatness!  Be sure to get details on current exhibitions from your Breidenbacher Hof Personal Assistant during your next visit.  I am sure you will love the museum as much as I do!
