Guided tours

Would you like to know more about the art on display in the Hamburger Kunsthalle? Why not come along on one of the many guided tours we offer? We look forward to welcoming you!

Guided tours

We offer regular public tours of our permanent collection and our special exhibitions: Tuesdays, Saturdays and Sundays at 11 am on the highlights of the permanent collection; Wednesdays at 12 noon focussing on a single artwork; more in-depth tours on Thursday evenings; and tours of our large-scale exhibitions at the weekends. Children and families can engage with the art on show by taking part in one of our children’s or family-oriented tours. A full list of our public guided tours is available here. 

Unless otherwise noted, participation in a guided tour costs 4 € plus museum admission.

Private tours for groups

Enhance your visit to the Hamburger Kunsthalle by booking a private tour. Let one of our specially trained guides take you and your friends, family or colleagues on a tour of the permanent collection or one of the special exhibitions. Our team of art historians, artists and educators look forward to showing you around.

You can book a private tour online through the Museumsdienst Hamburg or by calling +49(0)40-428131-0.

An hour-long private tour costs 70 € plus museum admission. Group admission (10 people or more) costs 10 € per person on weekdays, 12 € per person at weekends or on public holidays. Groups may not exceed 25 people. Special regulations may apply to particular exhibitions.  

Private tours can also be given in a number of other languages, including English, French, Russian, Italian and Spanish. In this case a foreign-language fee of 10 € will be charged.

We offer specially designed guided tours for kindergarten and school groups.

Self-organized tours

You are of course welcome to give your own group a guided tour, but in this case we must charge a licence fee of 20 €. Groups may not exceed 25 people. Special regulations may apply to particular exhibitions. Group admission (10 people or more) costs 10 € per person on weekdays, 12 € per person at weekends or on public holidays. Advance registration is required: besucherbuero[at]hamburger-kunsthalle.de or Tel +49(0)40-428131-200.

Why not combine your museum visit with a delicious restaurant meal? On Saturdays and Sundays we offer »Art & Cube« in cooperation with the restaurant The Cube. For 40 € per person you can enjoy a 4-course menu and two guided tours of the permanent collection or a special exhibition. Tickets are available from the ticket counters in the Hamburger Kunsthalle or online. Please book your table at The Cube: Tel +49(0)40-30375196.  

Multimedia guides

You are welcome to visit the Hamburger Kunsthalle at any time and you don’t have to join one of our guided tours in order to gain fascinating background information on the works on display. We offer multimedia guides to our permanent collection and selected exhibitions. Unlike conventional audio guides, these contain further layers of content – for example photographs, music or short films – in addition to the audio track. We have also developed a special children’s guide especially for our younger visitors. The multimedia guides are available in the foyer of the Kunsthalle.
