Pablo Picasso Art Museum
The Pablo Picasso art museum in the old town of Munster
Germany’s only Pablo Picasso Museum is in the beautiful old town of the Westphalian city of Münster. Art lovers from all over the world include a visit to the museum in their study trips, because here you can not only admire fantastic works by the Spanish painter, graphic artist and sculptor, but also works by other well-known artists from the classical modern era, often art lovers of Picasso.
Extensive Pablo Picasso collection in changing combinations
A visit to the Pablo Picasso Art Museum Münster is always appealing, because the museum presents exhibits about the artist, his life and works on around 600 square meters. The whole is complemented by works changing special exhibitions, loans and works by other artists such as Marc Chagall or Henri Matisse. Since the exhibitions are constantly being re-curated, there are always new thematic focal points in the exhibition rooms that visitors can immerse themselves in. In addition to guided tours for adults, special children’s tours through the Picasso Museum are offered and workshops for those interested in art who would like to walk in Picasso’s footsteps are also regularly held in the museum rooms.
Modern museum offerings in historical rooms
The Pablo Picasso Art Museum is located in the premises of the Druffel’sche Hof on Picasso-Platz in Königsstraße, which was once the city’s most elegant street. The structure, which was erected between 1784 and 1788, is the most important building from the Classicism period in Münster. With its typical architecture for the old town of Münster and thanks to the fact that the damaged facade could be reconstructed after the Second World War, the historic building is today a gem again. The interior was converted to make it suitable for museums in the 1990s and the building was connected to the neighboring building, so that space was created for modern exhibition rooms.

Wutach Gorge – Idyllic nature reserve in the south of Baden-Württemberg
The Wutach Gorge stretches for around 30 kilometers from the Black Forest to the Swabian Alb. The romantic landscape in the Black Forest belongs as a nature reserve to the Southern Black Forest Nature Park. The Wutach Gorge received its status as a nature reserve as early as 1939. Today the idyllic landscape with romantic gorges and dense forests especially attracts nature lovers and passionate hikers from Germany and Europe. Hobby botanists can come across rare and special animal and plant species in the region. A variety of geotypes and biotypes offer fascinating natural moments. The Wutach Gorge is one of the natural destinations for a trip to Baden-Württemberg.
Rare plants and animals in the Wutach Gorge
The southern German holiday region is known for its natural valley formations made up of gorges and the winding rivers of the Wutach, a tributary of the Rhine. The gorge courses in the region include the rocky Upper Gorge, the shell limestone walls of the Middle Gorge, the Lower Wutach Gorge as well as the Halslach Gorge and the Gauchach Gorge. The Wutach Gorge was formed over the past 20,000 years thanks to the regional course of the river; today the gorge is one of the most important formations of its kind in Germany. Around 1,200 of the 2,800 known vascular plants in Germany grow in the Wutach gorge region. There are also around 10,000 different animal species and 80 bird species – including rare species such as the peregrine falcon and the kingfisher.
Viewpoints and sights in the Wutach Gorge region
The Hochfirstturm, which offers a spectacular view of the Titisee, is one of the region’s popular vantage points. There is also a Japanese garden near Bonndorf, which can be visited at an altitude of 850 meters, which is atypical for Japanese gardens. A natural highlight next to the gorge formation itself is the picturesque Titisee, which stretches for about 1.3 km² – and which is surrounded by the idyllic green peaks of the Black Forest. The important settlements in the region include Bonndorf, Blumberg, Bräunlingen and Friedenweiler. The Wutach Gorge is an extraordinary natural destination in the south of Baden-Württemberg – and is ideal for close-to-nature study trips.
