Let’s be real: the Sprengel Museum is the place to check out world-renowned collections of 20th century and contemporary art.

The Sprengel Museum hosts work from a variety of movements including German expressionism, French cubism, minimal art, and Nouveau Realisme, to name a few. Fans of Picasso, Chagall, and Kandinsky will surely feel welcome here. Also notable are some of Niki de Saint Phalle’s iconic Nanas—bright and curvy sculptures that can be seen outside on the museum grounds, sculptures which people seem to either love or hate or think are the work of a psychotic shut-in.

Fun fact: the city of Hannover publicly supports the abolishment and elimination of nuclear weapons and is a part of a movement to get rid of them by the year 2020. Will it happen? Probably not! But I still love them for caring, and I think you should go visit.
