The kunsthalle is the German word that means exhibition hall, which doesn't have its own collection. But Hamburg Kunsthalle is not the case. Its facilities are located in three buildings, which themselves represent an architectural landmark. The first one – a brick house with a recognizable decorative facade – was built in 1869, the second – facility in a neo-classical style that is made out of light limestone – was built in 1919, and the last building for contemporary exhibitions appeared in 1998.
Exhibition space is formed by thematic and chronological order. Creative works of the old masters, paintings of the XIX century, modern art from 1900 to 1960 and from 1960 to the present, engravings and drawings – any visitor will find here own favourite theme.
Paintings by German artists take the main place in the museum, but there are also works by Tiepolo, Rembrandt, Munch, Van Gogh, Gauguin, Renoir, Picasso, Kandinsky.
Bistro in the Gallery of Modern Art offers one of the best views of the city.
