Individual Guided Tours - Käthe Kollwitz Museum Köln


Käthe Kollwitz (1867-1945) is one of the most important personalities of 20th century Germany. An individual guided tour puts her life and work into a wider context or focuses on the examination of individual thematic areas – such as techniques in graphic art (which Kollwitz mastered in a virtuoso fashion) or historical events from the Kaiserreich to National Socialism which are vividly illustrated by the artist’s diary entries, letters and works.

Individual guided tours can also be booked for current special exhibitions.
In a 60-minute tour, our guides take you to the highlights of the exhibition and are happy to answer all your questions.

Can’t make up your mind?
A combined tour of both the permanent collection and the special exhibition is also possible. We will be delighted to offer you a fully customised visit.
