A museum and a jewel steeped in history
This former country seat and small hunting lodge of the aristocracy is just a kilometre away from the city centre. A testimony to the baroque period, the palace was built in the second half of the eighteenth and expanded in the nineteenth century.
Museum of international ranking
Morsbroich Palace is home today to the Municipal Museum of Contemporary Art, exhibiting over three hundred paintings and sculptures, as well as about 2,300 works on paper. Temporary exhibitions between ten to twelve times a year provide a backdrop for international contemporary art, including works by Josef Beuys, Gerhard Richter, Günther Uecker, Ives Klein, and Alexander Calder.
Morsbroich Palace is more just than a museum: its expansive parks are popular for walks, whilst the so-called Morsbroich Summer attracts many visitors with a great many open-air events. The City's magnificent Mirror Hall hosts representational festive events.
