Fodor's Expert Review Arp Museum Bahnhof Rolandseck
Remagen Fodor's Choice
Three miles north of Remagen, via a scenic riverside promenade, the Arp Museum Bahnhof Rolandseck incorporates a 19th-century converted railway station, which hosts a world-class series of concerts, and a soaring modern building designed by renowned architect Richard Meier set on a hill high over the river. The translucent white building incorporates four levels of exhibition space to house the permanent collection focusing on the work of Dadaist Hans Arp and Sophie Taeuber-Arp in parallel with modern and contemporary works by internationally known artists and sculptors. There is also a fine collection of paintings from the Middle Ages to the present. The stylish in-house bistro is a great place to grab lunch or a snack. A train from Remagen station goes right to the museum (€5.90 round trip, about a six-minute ride), or you can take a ferry to nearby Rolandseck and walk.
