Brücke Museum

The Brucke Museum is home to the world’s largest collection of art by the Die Brucke group. Founded in Dresden by four university art students, the early 20th-century group is famous for kicking off the German expressionist movement. The museum features over 400 works by the founders and other artists who were close to the group.

The basics

The members of the Die Brucke movement—Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Fritz Bleyl, Karl Schmidt-Rottluff, and Erich Heckel—used abstract forms, bright colors, and themes from the circus, cabaret, literature, and film in their expressionist work. The movement was also centered around creating art with a connection to nature, which is represented in the current bungalow-style museum set in Berlin’s Grunewald forest. Entrance to the museum is included with the Berlin Pass, which offers access to 50 attractions around the city.

When to get there

Since the Brucke museum is Berlin’s smallest museum complex, visitors usually spend about 1.5 hours looking around. It’s best to combine a stop here with a visit to the Kunsthaus Dahlem, just a 5-minute walk away, as well as the nearby Botanical Garden, all located in the southwestern portion of Berlin. Throughout the year, the museum holds temporary exhibitions focused on a theme or on one of the Die Brucke members.
