Hamburg Welcome Tour

Art from eight centuries: The collection of the Hamburger Kunsthalle!

The Hamburg Welcome Center invites you in March to learn about art painting and its history. The three landmark buildings of the Hamburger Kunsthalle, located near the Alster, house one of the most important public art collections in Germany. The Kunsthalle is one of the few houses that allow a walk through eight centuries of art history. During a guided tour in the English language we will get new and surprising insights into these worlds! Following the tour you will have the opportunity to discover more treasures in the Kunsthalle until 9 p.m. or to end the evening in the adjoining Café & Restaurant “Das Liebermann” in the historic portico.

Afterwards, there is time for more personal explorations in this special kind of museum.

We look forward to sharing another part of Hamburg with you!
