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.

World class museum with thoughtful exhibits. Plenty of German expressionist art to see. Thought provoking installations. As a wonderful surprise the youth program had a very nice exhibition.

When living in Bremen so many years ago, I just loved this museum. I now visited three decades later and fell in love all over again. Some expressionist paintings were missing (e.g. Oscar Kokoschka, probably on loan somewhere else?) but there were enough other expressionists...More

A quite large art museum with a large piece of contemporary art (I have shot several art installations) on the first floor. The second floor has works from the Middle Ages so far, with great attention being paid to German artists.

A very good collection of 19th and 20th century art. Some real gems in here. Pissaro, Renoir, Van Gogh and Picasso. An excellent exhibition of Franz Radziwell's work.

We went specifically to see this exhibition and it certainly did not disappoint. It is well worth taking the audio guide as you learn a lot more although the little handbook they give you is quite comprehensive. The exhibition takes around 2 hours max and...More

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...More
