One of Germany's great art museums, the Hamburger Kunsthalle has a pretty extensive collection of painting and sculpture -- both old and new. In the modern and contemporary sections, artists like Andy Warhol, Max Beckmann and Pablo Picasso are represented; in the older sections, you'll find everyone from Rembrandt to Renoir, as well as a noted collection of works by German Romantic painters. Closed on Mondays, the Kunsthalle is open extended hours on Thursdays. Tour the museum off the Hauptbahnhof U-bahn station.

  • Upstairs, you'll find old and modern masters, from Bertram to Picasso. Downstairs, at the end of a long Jenny Holzer L.E.D. sculpture, is a contemporary arts annex, with German heavyweights like Gerhard Richter." -- New York Times
