Experiencing Art in Hamburg: A Guided Tour of the exhibition at the Bucerius Kunst Forum!

In the heart of Hamburg and directly adjacent to the Hamburg City Hall, ever since 2002, the Bucerius Kunst Forum features four exhibitions per year on topics ranging from ancient to modern art. In October, the Hamburg Welcome Center invites you to the current exhibition: “The Birth of the Art Market – Rembrandt, Ruisdael, van Goyen and the artists of the Dutch Golden Age”.

We will start our cultural-historical tour in the present center of our beautiful Hanseatic city, in front of the Hamburg City Hall. Just around the corner, we take a look into the building, which houses the Hamburg Stock Exchange, the Chamber of Commerce, the Commerce Library and the Hamburg Welcome Center. 

During the guided tour in the English language led by a recognized art expert, we will first receive interesting information about the Bucerius Kunst Forum and the historic building in which this Hamburg foundation is located. During the tour through the exhibition, we will be introduced to the birthplace of the anonymous art market in the 17th century - the Netherlands. We devote ourselves intensively to the painters of the “Golden Age” who are presented to us through their works of art. Many of these works have already been sold at maximum amounts during these times, not only by aristocracy and the church, but also by the well-to-do middle class.
