Deichtorhallen Hamburg is one of Europe’s largest exhibition center for contemporary art and photography. The two historical buildings, the Hall for Contemporary Art and the House Of Photography, dating from 1911-13 are real eye-catchers, with their open steel-and-glass structures. It is an architecture that today creates the backdrop for spectacular major international shows. Down through the years, Deichtorhallen Hamburg has emerged as an exhibition center for photography and contemporary art with three pillars of activities, three institutions under the single Deichtorhallen brand. Since 2011, the two buildings at the interface of Hamburg’s Art Mile and Hafencity have been supplemented by a satellite in Hamburg’s Harburg district, the Sammlung Falckenberg.
