About the Museum
DEICHTORHALLEN HAMBURG. One institution, two locations, three venues.
With their three venues, the Deichtorhallen Hamburg are one of Europe’s largest institutions for the exhibition of contemporary art and photography. The two main, historic buildings of the Hall for Contemporary Art and the House of Photography date from 1911–13 and feature a captivating, open, steeland- glass architecture, which now provides a space for major, international exhibitions.
Since 2011, the two buildings at the border between the Kunstmeile Hamburg and the HafenCity have been complemented by a satellite institution in the Harburg district of Hamburg: the Falckenberg Collection.The Falckenberg Collection, which can only be visited with a pre-booked guided tour, comprises approximately 2,000 works of contemporary art. Its focus is on German and American contemporary art of the last thirty years.
