In the Stuttgart area
The Kunstmuseum Stuttgart art museum opened in March 2005 as a “successor museum” to the Galerie der Stadt Stuttgart. Its prominent position on Königsstraße plays just as much of a role in its popularity as its extraordinary architecture.
By day, the museum building, with 5,000 m² of exhibition space, looks like a glass cube that reflects its surroundings. At night, the illuminated limestone walls inside become visible. Another particularly eye-catching feature is the metre-high lettering on the outside of the windows that changes with every exhibition.
The museum’s collection is based on the exhibits from the former “Galerie der Stadt Stuttgart”. Today, it is also home to the most significant collection of works by artist Otto Dix. The upper floor houses the Cube rooftop restaurant, fully glazed all around. Diners can enjoy beautiful views over the Schlossplatz square from here.
