Stunning Museum

The Thuringian cities can boast a diverse and internationally known art and museum landscape. Famous painters, graphic artists and sculptors have left inimitable traces through their work. Be it Lucas Cranach as one of the most important Renaissance painters, Lyonel Feininger, the renowned Bauhaus artist, or Otto Dix with his incomparable graphics and paintings. With 180 works, the Lindenau Museum in Altenburg has the largest special collection of early Italian panel paintings outside of Italy. Changing exhibitions of international standing can be visited in the Kunsthaus Apolda: paintings by Picasso and Cocteau, sculptures by Camille Claudel or works by Karl Lagerfeld and Helmut Newton are just some of the rarities shown so far. The Nordhausen "Kunsthaus Meyenburg" established itself as an art center in the north of Thuringia with exhibitions by Barlach, Hundertwasser and Dalí. From the baroque universe in Gotha to the birthplace of the Skat game in Altenburg, the poets and musicians' houses to the Bauhaus and the Modernism, there is something for everyone in the museum landscape of the Thuringian cities.
