48 hours in Düsseldorf : K21

Düsseldorf has a lot to offer when it comes to culture. I previously mentioned Insel Hombroich (a short drive from Düsseldorf) and K20. As you may have guessed, this post revolves around K21. On our schooltrip we spent the whole morning in K20 and the Kunsthalle (situated on the other side of the street of K20, I didn’t take a lot of photos so there probably will be no blogpost about it). 

K21 is more of an interactive, focussed on experience, museum. As you walk through the building, you’ll encounter different rooms. These rooms feature room-filling installations of various artists. 

The thing that amazed me the most was the architecture of this building. The front of the building is very classical, like the first part of the entrance. You’ll get to see the older constructions with the columns and the wide stairs. As you walk further along you’ll see this updated version of the columns and the see-throughs. I felt very tiny in this monumental and absolutely stunning building. 

All of the following photos, except the last five, are taken in the basement of the museum. It’s devoted to the new additions of the collection.
