    The worst €13 paid during our holiday! Expensive museum promising and boasting works of Picasso and Miro on their marketing material! Unfortunately the exhibits change and neither of the mentioned artists were in site!

    We had just 90 min left in your busy schedule and heard about this museum. So as everything in Baden Baden is walking distance and the Lichtentaler Alle anyhow worth a stroll we showed up at 10 am at the museum to see an exhibition of Sigmar Polke. fantastic, especially also with the Audio guide, and for me as one with Chemical background. Even more the museum is a dream of architecture using light and landscape views. Don't miss it when visiting Baden Baden.

    The Burda Museum building is an example of fine modern architecture, standing in Baden-Baden Lichtentaler Allee. The aesthetic lines of this architectural work are quite attractive. The luminosity level inside the building is a conspicuous feature thanks to the right architect Richard Meier’s conception and design. The building is moreover in perfect harmony with the park surrounding it and with the Kunsthalle, a state art gallery in neoclassical style, located next to that subject to this review. The Museum is simple as regards its lines and geometry, what contributes to a harmonious combination of elements resulting in an art work which looks like a picture in itself. The masterpieces collections of Frieder Burda consist of paintings by Picasso, Baselitz, Polke, Pollock and Rotko, among others. I felt like watching those painting and that’s the reason why I decided to visit that Museum. Unfortunately, instead of the works created by the said famous artists, the Museum housed at that time a dull provisional exhibition on candles with no interest at all. When I enquired, one of the persons who sold the entrance tickets about Picasso’s paintings told me that they were part of the permanent exhibition and that they were elsewhere. He didn’t know about the present paintings’ whereabouts. The entrance fee amounted to 13 euros, which I paid hoping that I could admire some art works by the stated masters. At the sight of the poor quality works there exhibited I just couldn’t feel but somehow swindled. As a consequence of the foregoing, it could be said that the Museum building is of a great artistic value and thus worth seeing. Nevertheless, once its façade has been observed, before paying for the entrance fee, it’s advisable to ensure about which kind of exhibition display it is housing so as to avoid bad surprises and deceptions as those referred to above.

    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 surrounding traditional buildings. The entrance fee is 12 euros. Some evenings, there are chamber music concerts from the nearby Festspielhaus, the musical and cultural center of the town.

    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 else. As a former native of this town, I am pleased that Mr Burda has made this investment.

    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 a nice walk through the park and look at the building instead.

    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.

    We saw two wonderful exhibits in a beautiful environment. It is a Richard Meyer's designed museum ( he also designed the Getty in LA amongst others).

    One of my favorite museums in the world (another is the Louisiana in Kopenhagen). Not so big, bright, the architecture is serving the exhibitions (and not vice versa like the Gehry museums- which I also like very much, but the architecture rivals the exhibited art). Nice Cafe in the Kunsthalle Baden Baden right next to it.

    This little museum in the center of Baden-Baden is very interesting. It is placed in the middle of of the Baden-Baden Allee. An area that invites you for a little walk. The museum itself is attached to the old museum and is very well designed. The building itself is worth a visit. The exhibitions are mixed but always very inspiring and we selected.

    The only downer was that the catalogue was only available in German. Great exhibition space. Bright and airy and excellent helpful staff.

    A wonderful modern gallery which has excellent exhibitions. The best thing about Baden- Baden! Very central too.

    I visited this museum based on the work of the architect, Richard, Meier, that I know. He's done the Getty in Los Angeles and the High in Atlanta. It is a beautiful stark, white structure with powerful ramps throughout. The exhibition space is lovely, and while I was there, there was a terrific Andres Gursky photographic exhibit. The museum only added to the exhibition through careful planning of the space by the architect. Brillant!

    Interesting building but expensive ticket (17 euros with Kunsthalle next door). Strange artworks all by. artists I haven't heard of. Difficult to recommend unless you are really into German art.
