Arp museum, Rolandseck station
Rolandseck station, the traditional jewel from the middle of the 19th century near Remagen, has been a place for famous artists from all over the world for centuries - for musicians, writers, painters and sculptors. After the restoration of the station, the new entrance leads straight into Richard Meier's newly constructed museum on the Rheinhöhen. The exhibition rooms there are reserved for the works of Hans Arp and Sophie Taeuber-Arp.
The station was originally the terminus for a private railway which travelled from Cologne. Nowadays a local train still stops here every hour, both in the direction of Koblenz as well as in the direction of Cologne.
The only museum with its own platform has taken shape in a particularly exposed location on the Rhine with a view towards the unforgettably beautiful silhouette of the Siebengebirge.
