Beuys & Bike #6: Neuss

100 years Joseph Beuys


On the trail of Joseph Beuys by bike

Beuys & Neuss

Just outside of Neuss, the Museum Island Hombroich is located in an idyllic floodplain landscape. To explore the site and its artworks, we leave the bike behind and take a special walk past the pavilions of sculptor Erwin Heerich, watercourses and floodplain meadows. Beuys' master student and longtime companion Anatol Herzfeld is also present on Museum Island. Many of his artworks were created in his studio on Museum Island.

Vertical meters: 71 m

The special Beuys moment on the road:

On the grounds of the Museum Island , visitors repeatedly encounter Anatol Herzfeld's artworks. His former studio can also be found there. Here, the artist and master student of Beuys created many sculptures in wood, stone and steel.
