Current Information

As of 2 April 2022, there are no longer any access restrictions for visiting the Kunsthalle according to the legal rules. However, due to the continuing high infection rates, we recommend wearing a mask and keeping your distance from other visitors and staff.

Further information for your visit to the museum due to Covid-19 can be found below the opening hours.

Dates for guided tours, courses, children's programmes and more can be found in our calendar of events. (Since our events are mainly in German, the calendar is available on our German page only. Please choose the German language and click the "Veranstaltungen" Button or icon displayed on the top left.)
It is also possible to book online tours or group tours for adults and school classes at the Kunsthalle. Information and registration at: T +49 (0)421 - 32 908 220

Offers for refugees can be found under admission fees.

You can find information about our current exhibitions here.

Of course we are still opened online: The Kunsthalle Bremen put its collection online in 2013 and has presented exhibitions and a selection of masterpieces on Google Arts & Culture since 2019.
