Außenansicht Brücke-Museum © Brücke-Museum

The Brücke Museum was opened to the public in 1967. The museum owns around 400 paintings, sculptures and several thousand drawings, watercolours and prints by members of the “Brücke”, the expressionistic movement founded in 1905 in Dresden by Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Fritz Bleyl, Karl Schmidt-Rottluff and Erich Heckel. The “Brücke” is the oldest of the German groups of artists to have a decisive international impact on the development of 20th century art. "Brücke" Expressionism is not only confined to painting, it also appears in drawings and graphic arts.

The core of the collection was a generous donation by Karl Schmidt-Rottluff to the city of Berlin. Erich Heckel also supported the museum with extensive donations. The collection then was systematically enlarged with subsequent acquisitions. 
Built like a bungalow, it fits in harmoniously with the quiet, green residential area in Grunewald.
