We had just 90 min left in your busy schedule and heard about this museum. So as everything in Baden Baden is walking distance and the Lichtentaler Alle anyhow worth a stroll we showed up at 10 am at the museum to see an exhibition of Sigmar Polke. fantastic, especially also with the Audio guide, and for me as one...

The Burda Museum building is an example of fine modern architecture, standing in Baden-Baden Lichtentaler Allee. The aesthetic lines of this architectural work are quite attractive. The luminosity level inside the building is a conspicuous feature thanks to the right architect Richard Meier’s conception and design. The building is moreover in perfect harmony with the park surrounding it and with... More

A relatively small building, designed by Pritzker winner architect, Richard Meier, who designed Getty center of Los Angeles, is home to modern collections of Burda. It has the signature clean lines of Meier's design. The galleries are roomy, airy and filled with natural light. It is located in a beautiful natural neighborhood. However, it does not fit well with the... More

An absolute star of a museum, the building itself and the current exhibit in September by Katharina Grosse. Whatever the exhibit don't miss this gem.

The Burda museum is localed in the center of Baden-Baden, in an elegant building, one of the best examples of modern architecture. It is more oriented on modern art, but we have seen there also several nice classical painting exhibitions, e.g. history of Geisburg dinasty from Wien.

This is one of Germany's better modern art museums. Not as far out as some in Berlin and Stuttgart, we liked it. Some of the paintings are whimsical

The Burda museum is a work of art on its own, Surprising angles, light coming in from unusual angles, large, airy rooms for the art, all extremely inspiring. Katharina Grosses colourful, monumental works couldn`t be better placed. An absolute delight.

Whether you are there to view Richter or Picasso or other key 20th century artists of note, this Richard Meier design is a work of art on it's own. The way light enters the various exhibition halls makes it a different experience every time.The Guggenheim, MoMA and the Tate are brilliant, but the Burda fits into this Park like nothing... More

The building is a fine architectural piece but the temporary art exhibition within isn't worthy of the building. I'm afraid, as with much of contemporary art of to-day, the work of the artist currently featured is an example of the 'emperor's clothes'. Not worth the entry fee of 17 Euro.

The museum website does say that the permanent collection is not always on view, but we were underwhelmed by the shows on view when we were there. Nice setting in the park, and interesting architecture. But not worth the admission price if you aren't a keen devotee of the artists they happen to be showing at the time. Perhaps just... More
