Kunstverein Hamburg

The Kunstverein Hamburg was founded at the begin of the 19th century and is thus one of Germany’s oldest art societies in Germany. The society was originally made up of a small group of Hamburg art enthusiasts, who met regularly to view drawings and other artworks together. After its official establishment, the first exhibition took place in 1826, after which others followed. Over time, the society’s premises expanded, construction of which was also in part supported by the City of Hamburg. The society was not allowed to organise any more exhibitions during the Second World War as it was forbidden by the National Socialists, but was re-founded after the war had ended. Today the art museum is located in an old market hall at Klosterwall. Today visitors can visit regular exhibitions and take part in a range of different events.
