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.

I spent the better part of an afternoon in the Kunsthalle. It is a very nice art gallery. I was very pleased with the permanent collection. The contemporary display wasn't quite to my taste, but these change out, so I won't hold it against the art gallery.

The gallery in located on Am Wall and is a short walk south east of the Altstadt. Entry fee was EUR 9 and as you'd expect, there was a good collection of German art. Lovis Corinth, Max Slevogt, Max Liebermann, Rudolf Tewes, Paula Modersohn-Becker and Max Beckmann all featured prominently. There was also a good collection of work by Eugene... More

Very nice collection of many types / periods of art. Well presented in a good building. Only real drawback is the lack of English descriptions for the works.

The Kunsthalle is well worth a visit both for its permanent and temporary exhibitions. Make sure not to miss the light installation by Olafur Eliasson on the top floor. The building is interesting on its own merits, too: the modern extension is extremely nicely done. It's not too dominating, but fits very well into the old building and forms a... More

Kunsthalle Bremen is housed in a neo classical building and has both temporary exhibitions and a permanent collection. the French and German impressionist paintings are my favorites. the museum is about two minutes walk to the east of the old town border.

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.

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.
