Unique to Cologne - no other large German city has more urban museums. And so the biggest "Lange Nacht der Museen" in North Rhine-Westphalia is again extending an invitation to a multifaceted and exciting ramble through this metropolis of art and culture. This night will see an exciting synthesis of the arts form in Cologne enabling visitors to view the city's museums in an extraordinary context through to the early morning. A support program of events with international artists offers concerts, dance and theatre performances. Audio artists and blues legends will sound out the commonalities between rock and baroque.
