A relatively small building, designed by Pritzker winner architect, Richard Meier, who designed Getty center of Los Angeles, is home to modern collections of Burda. It has the signature clean lines of Meier's design. The galleries are roomy, airy and filled with natural light. It is located in a beautiful natural neighborhood. However, it does not fit well with the... More

An absolute star of a museum, the building itself and the current exhibit in September by Katharina Grosse. Whatever the exhibit don't miss this gem.

The Burda museum is localed in the center of Baden-Baden, in an elegant building, one of the best examples of modern architecture. It is more oriented on modern art, but we have seen there also several nice classical painting exhibitions, e.g. history of Geisburg dinasty from Wien.

This is one of Germany's better modern art museums. Not as far out as some in Berlin and Stuttgart, we liked it. Some of the paintings are whimsical

The Burda museum is a work of art on its own, Surprising angles, light coming in from unusual angles, large, airy rooms for the art, all extremely inspiring. Katharina Grosses colourful, monumental works couldn`t be better placed. An absolute delight.

Whether you are there to view Richter or Picasso or other key 20th century artists of note, this Richard Meier design is a work of art on it's own. The way light enters the various exhibition halls makes it a different experience every time.The Guggenheim, MoMA and the Tate are brilliant, but the Burda fits into this Park like nothing... More

The building is a fine architectural piece but the temporary art exhibition within isn't worthy of the building. I'm afraid, as with much of contemporary art of to-day, the work of the artist currently featured is an example of the 'emperor's clothes'. Not worth the entry fee of 17 Euro.

The museum website does say that the permanent collection is not always on view, but we were underwhelmed by the shows on view when we were there. Nice setting in the park, and interesting architecture. But not worth the admission price if you aren't a keen devotee of the artists they happen to be showing at the time. Perhaps just... More

Must visit for architects and art lovers. Ckeck the event calendar online before planning the visit. You can also appreciate the building from outside. It is designed by lone of the famous architect called Richard Meier. I personally love his minimalistic design.

The building itself created by famous museum architect Richard Maier is worth a visit. Various changing exhibitions can be seen.
