Frankfurt offers many different galleries and museums. Among those I like most is the Schirn Kunsthalle, an art gallery that houses mainly contemporary artists and exhibitions that are always worth visiting. Even for those of you who are not too much into the art side of life.
It’s very easy to access via Underground station Dom/Römer. Once stepping out on the platform, a lot of art-related slogans within the station lead you to the gallery.
The building’s architecture is already very impressive from the outside: The “rotunda” in the entrance area of the building is used for changing installations. Whenever I’m around, I have a look if there is something new to see.
I love the spacious rooms and the very high ceilings inside the Schirn where all pictures and installations are exhibited with a lot of space around – have a look at their albums on Facebook to get an impression.
Each exhibition is carefully prepared, and there are frequent evening events such as exhibition kick-offs, and the “Schirn at night” events (see facebook Event) where DJs, drinks and art are mixed for a younger target group. I’d again recommend their Facebook page to inform yourself about upcoming events.
Until September 3rd, there is a fantastic Exhibition of Peter Saul you shouldn’t miss!
“Minischirn” makes art explorable for children as well. Their homepage’s kids & family section, is giving a good impression of the different activities for children and families, however a lot of programs will be held in German.
