If you appreciate both art and architecture, Kunsthalle Hamburg may leave you wondering whether to spend more time looking at the paintings or the building itself. The gallery focuses on Dutch and Flemish artists of the 16th and 17th centuries, French and German paintings from the 19th century, and art up to present day. Check out the website to find out about current exhibits. The layout of the galleries can be a little confusing; the gallery plan indicates room numbers that you won't find in the building itself.

Kunsthalle Hamburg reviews
A great art museum with older and more contemporary collections. I was in Hamburg for 2 days and would highly recommend going if you have time.

Cool space and great collections. You'd need more than 3 hours to take a full and detail tour of both buildings. Totally recommend if you want to spend a day soaking up art in silence.
It is a wonderful place to visit and see. Information is given next to each picture on the paintings or the statues found. I think people who love history and art should definitely stop by. A valuable and carefully organized museum. Here are Caspar David Friedrich's painting “The Wanderer in a Sea of Fog” (1817) and much more, including Cezanne, Manet, Monet, Picasso, just to name a few. Have a good half day. It was nice, but all the old pictures were a bit too much. It takes a long time to watch them all and is a bit boring for my taste. I would like more modern art. However, the very large painting in the first room was very impressive!
Many German cities were destroyed during WWII, Hamburg being one of them. Historical buildings are almost nonexistent, only replicas. Many of such buildings have a preserved historical look, but not the feel, sadly. Hamburg Art Gallery consists of 3 buildings and is considered to be among the largest art museums in Germany. The main building dates back to 1869, but it's hard to say what actually survived the devastating WWII. Today the museum looks shiny and modern. Attached to the main building is a domed annex and there is a separate building of Contemporary Art Gallery just opposite the main entrance. All three are interconnected with an underground corridor. The collection is big and includes art from Old masters, 19th century art, modern art and contemporary art. Easy to navigate, lots of space, plenty of information, audio guides, maps, etc. Facilities include a nice art cafe/restaurant The Cube. The museum shop is rather small. Tickets office is cash only, so if you want to pay with a card, buy the ticket online, which is not the ideal user experience as you need to fill in too many fields with unnecessary information before you get through. You need to leave all the bags in the locker room, where you will also need 1Eur or 2Eur coins to use it.
Hamburger Kunsthalle is a really attractive and lovely Art gallery. here is not enough couple of hours . you can stay whole day. I took many photos but I think its not enough cause here is a more amazing details . beautiful sculptures, paints, and architectural sides.. I took a fun little bit also and made a pose with some statues
Amazing large museum with a great mix of different styles of art. I was there for 3 hours but could’ve easily spent the whole day there if I had had the time. Under 26 EU residents/citizens get in for free!
