Just across the Rhine River from Dusseldorf, Neuss was founded by the Romans in 16 B.C., as the military colony of Novaesium, making it one of Germany's oldest Roman settlements. The town thrived in the Middle Ages, and in the late 15th century staved off the Siege of Neuss by Burgundian leader Charles the Bold. Museum Insel Hombroich is one of the city's main attractions, a unique venue fusing nature, art and architecture amid the heavy industrialization of the Rhine-Ruhr area.

moreOwner description: The Clemens Sels Museum Neuss is notable for the diversity of its collection, which encompasses a broad spectrum of the history of art and culture. A prominent position is occupied by the art collection. Alongside major paintings from the Middle Ages and by 17th century Dutch painters, the works by the Nazarenes, Pre-Raphaelites and Symbolists make it a collection unique in Germany. Also represented are the Rhineland Expressionists with a superb selection of paintings, prints and stained glass. Additionally the Museum has comprehensive holdings of paintings and sculptures by Naïve artists who occupy an entirely distinct position within the art of the 20th century. In the area of contemporary art color painting is another focus of the Museum’s collection. Other sections give insight into pre- and early modern history, the historical and economic development of the city of Neuss and the rise of regional bourgeois culture.
