A visit to the Kunsthalle is again possible without restrictions.

The generally applicable hygiene regulations must be observed.

Use the Kunsthalle as a venue for extracurricular learning and explore a wide variety of themes from our exhibitions.

Daycare and school groups of all ages and types are very welcome at the Kunsthalle zu Kiel and have free admission. We offer a variety of activity programmes to accompany all exhibitions as well talks to educate children about art through activity, oriented to different target groups. Our qualified team gets children and young people involved in an active dialogue.

The scope of modules ranges from the first introduction to an exhibition all the way to an intensive examination of artistic strategies. Our spacious work areas in the Kunstwerft and Malklasse offer visitors the opportunity for hands-on participation.
