When you’re in Hamburg, Germany, there is lots to do. One of the visits you probably want to make is to visit the Hamburger Kunsthalle, the Hamburg Art Museum. It first opened to the public back in 1869.
You can read about opening days and times, its collection and exhibitions here at its website.
Since we were travelling with kids, we loved the Family Card, allowing free entrance for children when accompanied by their parents (A plea to Italy: please think about the same policy! Museum visits are simply too expensive for families).
This is a classic painting from the Romantic movement, and students of 19th century English literature have seen it grace the covers of countless novels.
There are other 19th century works by Courbet, Degas, Manet, Monet and Rodin. Among modern art are paintings by Munch, Klee, Kokoschka and Picasso.
Definitely a museum worth a visit during your time in Hamburg.
