Kunsthalle Hamburg, Hamburg

4.4
#5 of 63 in Museums in 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 .

  • Excellent famous paintings: "The Ice Sea of C.D.Friedrich," Girl on the Bridge "by Munch, medieval sacred art, Italian landscape painting of the Baroque, sculptures and much more. The Kunsthalle is within walking distance of the Hbf and also has a large building for modern art of the first order.

  • Before entering, already admiring facing the old main building, with red bricks, massive, majestic. Ecstatic also before starting our visit to the museum, in front of the beauty of the Treppenhaus im Gründungsbau, the staircase that leads to the floors. In the three buildings that make up the Kunsthalle there is a lot to see. One could spend a whole day looking at the mix of modern and classical art offered to the visitor. Spacious halls, large, well-lit halls, where you can stroll peacefully and enjoy unrivalled collections by feeling a whole palette of aesthetic emotions: nostalgia, freedom, anger, wonder, fear, Joy, sadness, excitement... One is in a silent tasting, individual, respectful, colors, subjects, symmetry, proportions and carried by emotional sensations often indescribable... Remarkable experience.

  • Excellent museum, primarily paintings. Many famous artists. This place is huge! You can get lost here. Expect to spend 4 hours or more to see it all.
  • A lot of beautiful white space. I haven't seen the antic art due to time limits. The modern art was in good part nit to my liking
  • I don't have a passion or art but this is museum have some eye opening art, from modern to religious painting. You do have to pay, but the price is worth. The museum is huge so take time with your visit...the only thing I say is they dont have English voice message but is cool
  • Loved it! Wished I had more time to spend in this museum! So many beautiful paintings, its seriously such a great collection! A good range of styles and time periods, art from well known artists. If you love art you will love this museum!
  • Main exposition gives you quite extensive overview of an art history. Interesting selection of impressionists and cubists. Note: you'll need around 4 hours to walk through the entire mail exposition, so be prepared :)
