Moritzburg Castle, built at the end of the 15th century as the seat of the Magdeburg archbishops, is today one of the most important German museums for modern art of the 20th century. The museum holds a collection of roughly 250,000 items from Antiquity to the present. The “bastion of modernism”, this art museum for the region of Saxony-Anhalt has a firmly established place in the German museums landscape, with some 1,500 sqm of exhibition space devoted to the broad variety of 20th-century modernist art alone. Art from the Middle Ages to around 1900 is presented on another 1,500 sqm.

As well as presenting art history, the museum’s permanent exhibition, which was fully revamped in 2017/18, sheds light on the history of the collection itself. This is also one of the few German art museums to actively focus on art from the Third Reich and the GDR.

The award-winning extension opened in the west and north wings in 2008 by the Spanish architects Nieto Sobejano is a magnificent work of architecture whose influence extends beyond the region. The ruined walls of the old royal seat are covered by a folded roof producing an incredible lighting effect inside and an impression of weightlessness on the outside.

Visit the permanent collection and the sensational special exhibitions on international modernist art.
