Museum of Fine Arts

Museum of Fine Arts Hamburg

The Hamburg Museum of Fine Arts presents several important collections of Old Masters, Impressionists and Modern and Contemporary Art. The museum has two strong points, first of all the painting of Northern Germany around 1400 with its Hanseatic influence but also the Old Masters from other European regions, including Italian painting from 1350 to 1800. The second major attraction of the museum is the Romantic painting of the 19th century with 14 works by the painter Caspar David Friedrich, the most famous of which are The Sea of Ice (1823) and The Traveller Contemplating a Sea of Mist (1818).

Who, like Charles Trenet, is not fascinated by the sea! Waves up to the horizon, but what's on the other shore? How do you reach it? For 3,000 years, mankind has been trying to answer these questions and the International Maritime Museum (since 2008) is here to give you all the answers in a historic port warehouse transformed to take you on a journey through these 3,000 years of history.
