Enjoyed all 3 exhibits available on the day of our visit. Has also a very good restaurant (but be sure that you point out correctly what you want from the menue... or else you might get something similar, e.g. vegeterian instead of with meat).

Wonderful Karl Lagerfeld exhibition at the Bundeskunsthalle. There is everything from all the special Channel buttons to the "tailleurs" and original ball gowns. The last room with original long dress creations is a visual feast. Laser cut paper hanging from the ceiling create a stunning frame for absolutely spectacular creations. Very highly recommended!

Though they are wasting a lot of space currently with a fashion exhibition, along with the neighboring museum (two separate institutions) this is a nice space for contemporary art. Don't miss the rooftop.

This exhibition at the Bundeskunsthalle in Bonn is running until September 2015 so take time to go and visit if you are in the area. Even if you are not into fashion, his couture pieces, shoes and handbags are genuine works of art that you can't fail to appreciate. The intricacy of the outfits is incredible and the beautiful room... More

As an art critic I visit many museums around the world. This has to be one of the worst that I have had the misfortune to visit based on the staff. A total inconsistency between different staff members on what size of satchel was acceptable... and then that completely unacceptable feeling of people so bored with their jobs that they... More

I wandered in here today, partly because I had the Bonn Regio Welcome Card (so it was free) and partly because I had to go the bathroom and partly because I wanted to visit ONE of the museums on the Museum Mile and didn't want to pay the extra to go into the Art Museum next door. All that said,... More

The Art and Exhibition Hall of the Federal Republic of Germany is well-known for its excellent varied programme of exhibitions, i.e. the current one "African Masters - Art from the Ivory Coast". It is a forum for Art and Communication, international and cosmopolitan. The architecture is great: 3 iconic cones, designed by the Viennese architect Gustav Peichl. Visiting Bonn you... More

It is difficult to review a Museum that only has temporal exhibitions. I went to the Florenz and Villa Romana exhibition. It was very good, with paintures and objects are originally from Florence but they are currently exhibit in some of the major Art Museums in the world including the Ufizzi Gallery. This was the last week, though, so next... More

We go almost every year to one of the very nice exhibitions in Bonn. this time it was better because the text was not only in German, but also in English. if the catalogue had been availab le in English I would have bought it, but although we can read German, it's not always that easy, so the 39€ was...

From ancient Egypt to Hollywood the exhibit explores the legend of Cleopatra with hieroglyphics, artist impressions, theater, music, and garden flowers. Somehow it all works to make for a wonderful experience at the museum. The garden on the roof top is lovely with lots of fragrance.
