Works by Hans Arp and Sophie Taeuber Arp as well as a sculpture path are to be found slightly outside Bonn.

Remagen is located some 20 kilometers up river from Bonn on the banks of the Rhine river. Since 2007, the State of Rhineland-Palatinate has presented works by the Dadaist Hans Arp and his wife Sophie Taeuber-Arp in the dedicate museum. There is plenty of space available to this end: in a new building designed by Richard Meier covering 2,900 square meters and in a railway building. Less clear is the concept: Alongside the works by the Arps, there are alternating exhibitions featuring contemporary art but also historical works from the Rau Collection (which includes works by Lucas Cranach, Claude Monet and Paul Cézanne). In 2001, the museum also initiated the Sculpture Route or Skulpturenweg along the banks of the Rhine. To date it has eight works by Thomas Huber, Hamish Fulton or Bittermann & Duka.
