At Kunsthalle Bremen, visitors can find an exhibition of masterpieces from various periods of art. Over the course of almost 200 years, Kunstverein in Bremen, the association that is the museum's private provider, has turned its collection into an extensive art gallery.

Masterpieces From Past and Present

Kunsthalle's architecture alone, with its original classicist construction and the modern annexes stand for a symbiosis of old and new, past and present. This notion is also reflected in the collection that brings pieces from more than 600 years of art history together in one place. Here you will find impressionists such as Monet and Cézanne next to modern works by Macke or Picasso. Moreover, the museum features media installations by contemporary artists.

A special focus lies on the print room, a true treasure chamber featuring over 220,000 works from seven different centuries. Explore the various pieces that range from hand drawings, print graphics and aquarelles to sketchbooks, posters, and artfully illustrated books.

Experience the Art

Kunshalle Bremen offers a large variety of activities. Besides classic guided tours, art discussions, or studio courses, you can also take part in integrative and creative workshops. The programme's main goal is to make art available to everyone. Hence, it is aimed at a range of different target groups.

Even those who want to explore the artworks from the comfort of their own home find what they're looking for: via Google Arts & Culture you can access 360° views of 22 exhibition rooms. Besides the regular online exhibitions, there are even VR views of the rooms.

Kunstverein in Bremen was founded in 1823 and to this day remains the private provider of Kunsthalle Bremen, which was itself built in 1849. At the time, it was the first house distinctly built for a civil collection in Germany. Throughout the years, the collection was extended with paintings, sculptures, and installations from various periods of art.

The initial building was extended in 1902, and again in 2011. The annexes have made room for further exhibition space as well as event rooms, seminar rooms, workshops, and depots to complement the museum.

How to get there

Kunsthalle is located inside the Wallanlagen park by the river Weser.
