Kunsthaus Hamburg

The Kunsthaus houses changing exhibitions of contemporary, and primarily local, art. It is not a museum with a permanent collection.

The Kunsthaus was opened in 1993 in the old Markthalle on Klosterwall and is one of the museums and exhibition venues on Hamburg's Kunstmeile. Since January 2002, the Kunsthaus has had the legal form of a non-profit making limited company. After obtaining the adjacent Barlach Halle K, an exhibition space of over 900 sq. metres is now available to display art. The focus of the exhibition programme is contemporary art from Hamburg and changing exhibitions. Each year, 8 to 10 changing exhibitions of visual art in all media forms are exhibited in cooperation with the task force 'Arbeitsgruppe bildende Kunst' in Hamburg, the Hamburg Ministry of Culture and Hans Barlach in the Kunsthaus. The art house is also the headquarters of the "Berufsverband bildender Künstler Hamburgs e.V." (professional association of fine artists in Hamburg) and of the association "Ateliers für die Kunst" (Ateliers for art).

Hamburg Michel St. Michaelis Church

Hamburg has many large churches - but only one "Michel": On its platform 106 metres high, there is a fabulous (and breezy) view of Hamburg, the port and the surrounding countryside - one that should not be missed!
