The Kunsthalle Bremen is an art museum next to the city center of Bremen, Germany. It is located between the northern end of the Osterdeich along river Weser and the Stadtgraben (the water next to the former city fortifications). From the museum it is a very short walk to the main market place. The art collection dates back to the year 1823, the current building was created in 1849.

Within the museum you can find a collection of artworks from the 14th to the 21st century. Van Gogh, Liebermann, Picasso, Beckmann, Marc, Macke, Corinth, Dürer, Rubens, Canova, Rodin – important names you can find throughout the building. I especially like the sections about impressionism and expressionism; but there is also a great artwork created with light by James Turrell. The museum also has a shop and a coffee bar directly next to the entrance (accessible without purchasing a ticket).

Personally I have a special connection to the museum: When I got divorced I was unsure what to do with my wedding ring. I couldn’t keep it, couldn’t sell it or throw it away. I brought it to the Kunsthalle Bremen and added it to the artwork ‘The Hole in the Wall‘ by Wolfgang Hainke – a hole in the walls of the museum. Now it is safely stored there.
