Deichtorhallen

Three of the most beautiful exhibition halls in Europe

The Deichtorhallen Hamburg is one of Europe's largest art exhibition halls. There art and photography enthusiasts will find a wide variety of different pictures and interesting exhibitions.

The Deichtorhallen in Hamburg are a very recommendable destination for visitors interested in art. They are among the largest exhibition halls for contemporary art and photography in Europe. Nestled between the city centre and HafenCity, Hamburg's Deichtorhallen are a visual highlight in themselves. The two historic buildings from 1911/13 impress with their open steel-glass architecture and today offer space for spectacular major international exhibitions. When you arrive here, it is best to start with the Haus der Photografie, which is located in the south of the two buildings. Since 2011, the two buildings at the transition from the Hamburg Art Mile to Hafencity have been supplemented by a branch in Hamburg-Harburg with the Falckenberg Collection. The collection is located in the Phoenix Halls in the Harburg district and has since attracted many visitors with its numerous thematic exhibitions in collection presentations.The Deichtorhallen Hamburg, located at the transition between the art mile and Hafencity, is an ideal starting point for cultural activities.

Various exhibitions from photography to architecture

In the Deichtorhallen there are always solo exhibitions of artists and painters who bring a breath of fresh air to the galleries. In the Halle für aktuelle Kunst each exhibition is completely redesigned and often spectacularly furnished. The immediate present is depicted and genres are transcended. The Haus der Photographie presents ever-changing international exhibitions on the subject of photography - both the 19th and 20th centuries play a role here, as do the present and the digital photography of the future. Another highlight is the F.C. Gundlach Collection. Here you get to know many works of art from the fields of artistic photography and fashion photography.

An important keyword for the Deichtorhallen is architecture, because the Deichtorhallen are not only a monument themselves, but also a monument to architecture. By April 2015, the Deichtorhallen had been extensively renovated and adapted to the current requirements of international exhibition venues. The exhibition area of the Halle für aktuelle Kunst is now 3,800 square metres, making it one of the largest connected exhibition areas for contemporary art in Europe.

The Falckenberg Collection also impresses with its architectural uniqueness

The spacious rooms make it possible to present larger installations and multimedia projects by artists such as John Bock, Thomas Hirschhorn, Mike Kelley, Jon Kessler, Jonathan Meese and Gregor Schneider. Another special feature is the sliding bearing, which offers a nice overview of the entire collection. This allows access to works that are not currently on display.
