Museums in Cologne
This annual design festival, which runs parallel to imm cologne, offers fascinating insights into the international design scene, its trends and newcomers
Single-focus furniture exhibitions would not do justice to the concept of a modern design festival. That’s why Passagen offers you an exciting happening concept and sheds light on the thematic variety of modern design by means of a colourful programme of vernissages, concerts and other events. If you’re interested in design and networking, Passagen is a must.
At the start of the art season in the fall, the Rhineland becomes the center of the current art scene.
