Art Mile (Kunstmeile) Hamburg

5 renowned art houses as a mile

Along the 1.5 km of the Hamburg Art Mile between Ferdinandstor and Deichtorstraße are state museums, exhibition institutes and private galleries with over 30,000 m2 of exhibition space. Art and culture from antiquity to provocative contemporary art are presented here.

A visit to the five houses that make up the Art Mile can take you from antiquity to the future, and that's what makes it so appealing:

  •     The Bucerius Kunst Forum
  •     the Deichtorhallen with the exhibition hall "Current Art" and the "House of Photography
  •     the Hamburger Kunsthalle
  •     the Kunstverein Hamburg
  •     the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe

The institutions of the Kunstmeile Hamburg

In the Bucerius Kunst Forum, which opened in 2002, there are three to four exhibitions a year, always devoted to a very specific theme. International loans are often on display. There is a lot of program to accompany the exhibitions, as the Bucerius Kunst Forum also wants to be a place for discussion and exchange. The Hamburger Kunsthalle offers a fantastic opportunity to compare art from seven centuries. The treasure stored in the three spectacular buildings on the Binnenalster? One of the largest and most important art collections in Germany. More than 700 exhibits with a focus on German Romanticism and Classical Modernism, as well as changing thematic exhibitions, make the Kunsthalle a very special experience. The beautiful historic buildings of the Deichtorhallen are eye-catchers in their own right thanks to their open steel and glass architecture, and also provide a great setting for current exhibitions of photography and art. The oldest institution and at the same time the one with the youngest program can be found at the Klosterwall: The Kunstverein in Hamburg was founded at the beginning of the 19th century and gives a lot of space to artists who show new perspectives on social issues with their works. The Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe collects 4000 years of design history and is considered one of the most important museums for arts and crafts in Europe. Visitors to the museum at the main train station can learn about the history of ceramics production, photography, home decor and the development of furnishings, textiles and poster printing, among other things.
