Presiding over three buildings on Hans-Thoma-Straße – the main building, the Junge Kunsthalle, and the Orangerie – the Staatliche Kunsthalle Karlsruhe is one of Germany’s largest and most historical art museums.

Opened in 1846, the Kunsthalle is one of the few art museums to be largely preserved in its original form and with its original interiors. The main building and the Orangerie feature 800 works from the Late Middle Ages up to the present day, while the Junge Kunsthalle houses exhibitions especially designed for children and young people. Our museum’s mission is not only to preserve seven centuries of European art history, but also to engage in a contemporary dialogue with the collection and its discriminating expansion.
