Great place with something more!

The ARP Museum is from a architectural point a gem! At such an unique location at the river Rhine with the wonderful railway station ROLANDSECK . The exhibition was ok. They are in preparation for a new show. Anyhow a great place to see and watch and get inspired.

Very well designed museum
Aug 2020
Excellent museum! The nicest way to go there is to take the ferry from the opposite side of the Rhine coming from Konigswinter. Free parking space. The railway station (still in use) has the old museum building with a tunnel and impressive climb to the higher level of the new building by Richard Meier. Very clear, vast spaces, excellent displays, very well designed. Also, the art is coherent. Of course the work of Arp and Salvador Dali (also in the old building) but at the time of our visit there were tow fitting exhibitions, about dreams and visions (paintings and art form the Rau-Unicef collection) and large apocalyptic paintings by Jonas Burgert. They fitted in excellently with the Dada/Surrealist art. If you go from the old to the new building, leave the elevator and take the stairs. They are surrounded by fascinating use of concrete, for example decorative pillars, which are an art experience in themselves. This is how a museum visit should be.

Don't miss having a cocktail or coffee at the old train station
Oct 2019
The Franki Gehry-designed museum is a fascinating space, built into the side of the mountain: especially great elevator ride:-). But after your time in the museum, it's really charming to visit the train depot from the 1800s, where you can enjoy coffee & desserts or cocktails on the terrace overlooking the Rhine. It makes for a great day!

Stunning & Eclectic Mix
Aug 2018 • Couples
We visited whilst the Monet to Manga exhibition was on - a thoughtfully assembled array of art that demonstrated the influence of Japan on late 19th century and early 20th century western artists. This included works by Hokusai as well as Monet and Van Gogh and many more besides. All the labelling was just in German, which presented a challenge, but nonetheless, well worth a visit.

Amazing space
Jun 2018 • Couples
Well worth a visit, a great space to exhibit an eclectic mix of art works, 17th century alongside modern but in an appropriate position to develop a theme. Very imaginative building linked creatively to the old station, an amazing structure in its own right.

Extraordinarily interesting museum
Sep 2017 • Friends
Visited with some friends from Bonn on the day the museum was celebrating its anniversary with free entrance, a party and a band, so it was busy. The layout and architecture are stunningly good, with the entrance through a pseudo-U-Bahn tunnel under the railway, leading to a lift deep in the hillside, which takes you up to one of the airiest and brightest museum halls you could wish for, with stunning high-level views over the Rhine, and Bad Honnef on the opposite bank. The exhibits explained a lot about Henry Moore and Hans Arp, as you might expect, without overloading visitors with 'interpretation'. The curators seemed to have struck an excellent balance in designing the show. Even if we'd had to pay the usual €10 entrance fee, it would have been worth every cent.
After the exhibition, we enjoyed a drink on the railway cafe balcony. The station cafe toilets, weirdly, are a work of art that are themselves worth a visit!

Went to see the Henry Moore exhibition and were treated to a very special place. Only 10€ to get in. I will go again depending on the next exhibition.

Very pleasant environment. Really did a nice job on this old train station. The museum is interesting, the view is special I could spend more time here.

Fine art, fine setting

The old train station at Rolandseck has been through a number of incarnations since it was built to encourage the Rhine-Romanticsm tourist boom in the 1850s. In the 1980s, it did service as a concert hall: I was present once when a piano string ruptured whilst Sviatoslav Richter was playing. It was touch and go whether he'd come back on to complete the concert. (He did).

Now re-designed and extended by Richard Meier, the premises are dedicated to the German-French sculptor Hans (Jean) Arp, some of whose work is permanently on show. Most of the extension is used for temporary exhibitions. We saw the Hepworth there. Her sculptures were beautifully presented in the first floor extension rooms, which proved an ideal setting for showcasing her work as transitional, creating a synthesis between the large windowed interior spaces, the outside gardens and the Rhine valley beyond. We followed up with lunch on the cafe terrace. Excellent value, great views and staff who really know the meaning of service and negotiated on our behalf with the kitchen on the possibility of having just the asparagus ... minus all the normal encumbrances. Lovely morning out.
