The Kunstmuseum Stuttgart (modern art museum)

The Kunstmuseum Stuttgart is situated right in the heart of the city centre. The spectacular glass cubicle - build by the Berlin architecture office Hascher and Jehle - is inspiring with its sleek elegance. During the day glass galleries invite you to enjoy a magnificent view of the city and the surrounding slopes, at night the cube floats as a fascinating light sculpture above the Small Schlossplatz. With a museum shop, book shop, bar and restaurant as well as rooms for events, the glass cube is a unique attraction - for the friends of art as well as for the people passing by.

The top-class city art collection entices on around 5,000 square meters. The basic inventory was donated by Count Silvio della Valle di Casanova in 1924 through the gift of his private collection of paintings to his adopted home town of Stuttgart. After 1945, Eugen Keuerleber took over the direction of the city art collection and defined four points of emphasis: The Swabian Impressionists, Adolf Hölzel and his followers, Otto Dix as well as the contemporary art of the region.

The world's most important Otto Dix collection has formed the core of the city art collection until today. Today the city art collection includes around 15,000 pieces.
