Golden winged car


On April 25, 1991, the “Golden Bird” landed on the staircase tower of the former armory, which dates back to the 16th century. 

HA Schult, who became known worldwide through his "Trash People", created this winged car as part of the two-week art action "Fetish Auto". The Cologne district president at the time demanded that the work of art be dismantled with reference to the preservation order, but the car is still "temporarily tolerated" in the museum. The wing car is a tourist attraction.



On the historic armory, 5 minutes walk from the main station.
