Neanderthal Man, the Celtic grave of a princess from Waldalsgesheim, the Caelius Stone as the only written document for the defeat of the Romans in the Battle of Teutoburg Forest, the Gustorf choir screen, a major work of early Romanesque art in Germany and many more objects attest to the European rank of the LVR-LandesMuseum Bonn's collection.

For a time period that started around 400,00 years ago, when the first people began to make the Rhineland their home, and extends up to today's contemporary art, the LVR-LandesMuseum Bonn provides comprehensive and fascinating insights into the Rhineland's cultural history.

With seven tours in all, you may discover the diversity of around 400,000 years of cultural history in the Rhineland. You will learn about the great cultural epochs in time as well as about the issues and themes that have occupied people or determined their lives for thousands of years already.
