The Deichtorhallen Hamburg is dedicated to contemporary art and photography. With its three buildings – the Hall for Contemporary Art, the House of Photography, and the Falckenberg Collection – at two locations and 10,000 square meters of exhibition space, it is one of the largest exhibition venues of its kind in Europe. The exhibitions at the Deichtorhallen reflect the present moment, transcending boundaries and genres. In interaction with the extraordinary architecture of the three exhibition halls, the institution hosts spectacular, high-quality exhibitions that are often realized in cooperation with international museums.
Many aspects of the Deichtorhallen Hamburg make it worth a visit: The buildings are architectural monuments and an important fixture in the history of Hamburg. They are an integral part of the Kunstmeile, a group of five renowned art exhibition venues in the center of Hamburg. With the Fillet of Soul restaurant, a cafe, and two bookshops for art and photography, the Deichtorhallen is a lively meeting place for locals as well as international visitors. It is located directly on the water, near the creative Oberhafen neighborhood, the Speicherstadt, and the HafenCity with the Elbphilharmonie.
