Staatliche Kunsthalle Karlsruhe

The Staatliche Kunsthalle Karlsruhe is one of the most influential and oldest museums in Germany. The collection comprises more than 800 paintings and sculptures spanning eight centuries, particularly works from German, French and Dutch artists. The historical museum and the adjoining “Orangery” by Heinrich Hübsch (1795-1863) not only house the collection but are themselves a unique ensemble within the German museum landscape. The main building has been constantly extended to create more space for the collection whereas the impressive historical lobby and the hall with Moritz von Schwind's (1804-1871) paintings were there right from the beginning.

The Staatliche Kunsthalle Karlsruhe also comprises a further building by Heinrich Hübsch situated between the main building and the Orangery. The “Junge Kunsthalle” hosts exhibitions for children and the action room invites children to become creative.

The three buildings of the Staatliche Kunsthalle Karlsruhe are located right in the city centre and border on the Botanical Garden and the Castle. Hence this oasis of tranquillity and culture is an ideal excursion destination.
