Augustinermuseum

The Augustinermuseum houses a renowned art collection with works ranging from the Middle Ages up to the Baroque period, as well as paintings from the 19th century. Thanks to the architect Christoph Mäckler, the former monastery church has been transformed into an impressive modern museum building which allows the works to be viewed from many different angles and makes visiting the museum an exciting experience.

The main attractions are the original stone figures and glass windows of Freiburg Cathedral, as well as medieval wooden sculptures and panel paintings by Matthias Grünewald, Lucas Cranach the Elder and Hans Baldung Grien among others. The works of the Baroque era achieve their full effect in the former choir. Paintings from the 19th century, including works by Anselm Feuerbach, Franz Xaver Winterhalter and Hans Thoma, are displayed on the top floor.

The Haus der Graphischen Sammlung, opened in 2016, is home to the graphic collections of the Augustinermuseum and the Museum für Neue Kunst. The architect Christoph Mäckler has created a state-of-the-art building that meets all the requirements of these sensitive objects. Three storage rooms offer space for 90,000 drawings, print graphics and photographs – which are conserved at ideal humidity and temperature. The temporary exhibition room presents three exhibitions per year.
