Dear visitors,

in order to contain the spreading of COVID-19, the Kunsthalle Bielefeld is closed until 19 April (as of 16 March, 2020).
All museums in Northrhine-Westphalia will be closed until this date. We apologize for any inconvenience. We are concerned about our staff and you – we hope you can stay at home and are safe.
On our website you will find videos to show you what we do in our museum, when most of us are at home, in fact. We will also publish short ideas for creative children and you may find suggestions for books we found worthwhile reading.
Let us keep in touch!

Your Kunsthalle Bielefeld staff


Sculpture Garden

To celebrate the Kunsthalle’s fortieth birthday, the Sculpture Park, which was restored in accordance with Philip Johnson’s original plans, was re-opened on September 27, 2008. An elegant, narrow water basin and looping walkways create an inviting place for a stroll. The outdoor sculptures by artists such Olafur Eliasson, Sol LeWitt, Henry Moore, and Thomas Schütte, will be illuminated with new lights at night.
The restoration of the park was made possible by the generosity of Dorothea Winkler, of Bielefeld, as well as by the State of North Rhine-Westphalia and the City of Bielefeld.
