Museum Frieder Burda
The museum of the art collector Frieder Burda on the Lichtentaler Allee is only 300 m away from the Hotel MERKUR. It is a stunning jewel in the Baden-Baden spa park. Not only is the design of the naturally lit museum by the renowned New York architect Richard Meier unique, but the collection also contains some of art's finest works. Around 800 paintings, sketches, sculptures and objects trace the past 100 years of art history. The permanent exhibition is rotated with unique special exhibitions.

Public art gallery
The listed building that houses the Baden-Baden art gallery is next to the Frieder Burda museum and provides the perfect conditions for art exhibitions – including art that was created 100 years after the architect's Herman Billing's design. The location next to a private museum is an excellent place to create a public art gallery at the beginning of the 21st century.

LA8 - Museum for 19th century art and technology
Art and technology are often seen as two sides of the same coin. The exhibitions at the 19th century art and technology museum focus on the oft-ignored connection between these two supposedly divergent topics. This approach is unique within German museums. In cooperation with national and international institutions there are exchanges of exhibitions on different topics of this richly faceted century.

Gehrke-Remund art museum
The Gehrke-Remund art museum displays the complete artistic works of Frida Kahlo as well as objects from her life in a permanent exhibit. This includes 116 out of her total of 146 paintings. These are displayed in such a real way that it's as if Frida Kahlo has just stepped out of her studio for a moment. Visitors can experience Frida Kahlo's paintings and surroundings, as well as her clothes and jewellery. The museum has also re-created the main residence of Frida Kahlo and her family, the Casa Azul (the blue house), and her garden with its Aztec pyramid.Homepage of the Gehrke-Remund museum: www.kunstmuseum-gehrke-remund.de
