Kunsthalle Bremen Only a few minutes away from the market place is the Kunsthalle Bremen. Over the course of its 180 year history, it has developed into a museum with an international reputation. In 1823, 34 art-loving citizens established the Kunstverein Bremen [Bremen Arts Society] which still runs the institution as a private supporting organisation today, sponsored by regular subsidies from the Bremen municipality. The collection of paintings centres on French and German art of the nineteenth and twentieth century. Along with other European works of the fifteenth and nineteenth century, they fill the gallery on the upper floor. Special highlights are the many paintings by Paula Modersohn-Becker, Max Beckmann, Lovis Corinth, Max Liebermann, and Eugène Delacroix. The Department of Prints and Drawings holds about 200,000 sheets, including hand drawings, aquarelles, and printed graphs of the fifteenth to twentieth century, and is thus one of the major institutions of its kind in Europe. Sculptures, including ones by Auguste Rodin, are presented in the Large Gallery on the ground floor. On the top floor an exclusive artwork by John Cage is exhibited.

We read about the museum in our guide book and it sounded great. But we we thrilled to find it was even better in the flesh. Lots of amazing paintings from across the centuries, in galleries that were well designed and interesting. In February we more or less had the place to ourselves which was even better. Well worth the... More

The Bremen Kunsthalle is a lovely airy space full of great exhibits - a mixture of styles across many years so there should be something for everyone. Easily spent two hours happily wandering from room to room - well worth a visit.

An interesting blend of modern and classic art but sadly no translations available from German for international travellers

A wonderful place to spend 2 hours in. With very nice paintings and interesting layout. When you climb to the top and see the bottom shining stars, you will feel it is worth to come here.

Everything was very well displayed. The Emile Bernard exhibition was excellent. The main gallery has a very good collection of Impressionist paintings. We also enjoyed the cafe,

Bigger than I expected. The temporary exhibition was really well done and beautiful. Permanent exhibition is so big that I found it difficult to follow and focus. Nice to do on a rainy afternoon !

The new exhibition you should visit - Emile Bertrand - and take a lot of time to enjoy. I was there on a Tuesday morning, early morning. Around high noon a lot of visitors arrived and the museum was full

I don't often visit art galleries, so the admission fee almost kept me from taking the opportunity. Once inside, I enjoyed a lot of the impressionistic artwork and the special exhibition of Emile Bernard on display until May. I'm not into avant garde or abstract, so I was glad that there wasn't a whole lot of it, and I was... More
