Apart from the mandatory visits to the Cathedral and the Museum Ludwig the Kolumba absolutely belongs to the ‘must sees’ in Cologne as well. This – by Peter Zumthor designed – beautiful construction is halfway between a museum and a church. Zumthor’s modern design is quite literally located on the ruins of the church of St. Kolumba – hence the name – and forms a whole with the Böhm’s chapel. But it’s above all the overall contemplative atmosphere in which both classical and modern art is displayed which makes this a meditative and reflective experience.
Depicted are works of the exhibition ‘Playing by Heart’ which runs until August 24, 2015.
