The Kunstverein in Hamburg is a location providing the perfect setting for exclusive events, business meetings, lectures, symposiums, receptions and more. There are three spaces available to be rented separately ensuring flexibility and offering the right place needed for any event; a large and a smaller exhibition space, as well as the foyer of the Kunstverein can be rented temporarily. They are available as empty spaces during construction times when no exhibition is on view. In consultation with the artistic director and depending on the show, events could also take place during exhibition periods. The smaller room on the ground floor is a square white cube. The large exhibition hall on the first floor keeps its factory-like character, and the atmosphere of its original function as a covered market. The foyer provides a pleasant atmosphere for conversations, snacks and drinks. On request it is possible to book guided tours of the current exhibitions additionally. We are pleased to take into account your individual interests.
