The Museum Frieder Burda in Baden-Baden is a small museum, built around the private holdings of a passionate collector of modern art. The airy, open layout is a beautiful venue for changing temporary exhibitions, in which the building is given entirely to the works of whatever artist is on show. The setting is magnificent, amid the greenery of Baden-Baden's dreamy Lichtentaler Allee.
The stunning architecture is by American Richard Maier, who designed the building to make the most of controlled natural light. Consequently, the viewing experience changes--with time of day and time of year.
The museum is also a bridge--literally and figuratively--to Baden-Baden's official side. A walkway connects Frieder Burda with the adjacent "Staatliche Kunsthalle".
Visit both museums on a single ticket, and enjoy a coffee and cake in the Kunsthalle cafe or on the terrace.
