Create an itinerary including Kunsthalle Hamburg
If you appreciate both art and architecture, Kunsthalle Hamburg may leave you wondering whether to spend more time looking at the paintings or the building itself. The gallery focuses on Dutch and Flemish artists of the 16th and 17th centuries, French and German paintings from the 19th century, and art up to present day. Check out the website to find out about current exhibits. The layout of the galleries can be a little confusing; the gallery plan indicates room numbers that you won't find in the building itself. Make Kunsthalle Hamburg a centerpiece of your Hamburg vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Hamburg trip itinerary maker tool.

  • A lot of very interesting pictures. The old department is by far better than the comtemporary, but this is more a matter of interest,

  • Many German cities were destroyed during WWII, Hamburg being one of them. Historical buildings are almost nonexistent, only replicas. Many of such buildings have a preserved historical look, but not the feel, sadly. Hamburg Art Gallery consists of 3 buildings and is considered to be among the largest art museums in Germany. The main building dates back to 1869, but it's hard to say what actually survived the devastating WWII. Today the museum looks shiny and modern. Attached to the main building is a domed annex and there is a separate building of Contemporary Art Gallery just opposite the main entrance. All three are interconnected with an underground corridor. The collection is big and includes art from Old masters, 19th century art, modern art and contemporary art. Easy to navigate, lots of space, plenty of information, audio guides, maps, etc. Facilities include a nice art cafe/restaurant The Cube. The museum shop is rather small. Tickets office is cash only, so if you want to pay with a card, buy the ticket online, which is not the ideal user experience as you need to fill in too many fields with unnecessary information before you get through. You need to leave all the bags in the locker room, where you will also need 1Eur or 2Eur coins to use it.
