Highlights such as the Rose Room and the monumental “Lepanto” cycle (2001) naturally form part of the tour, which also focuses on Twombly’s lyrical combination of image and text.

You will learn more about the architecture of Sauerbruch Hutton, who designed the building which opened in 2009, but also about the Brandhorst Collection and how it was founded and developed. A highlight of the visit is the impressive room that was specially designed for the twelve-part "Lepanto" cycle created in 2001 by Cy Twombly (1928-2011).
