Hannover Germany Museums
The 13th largest city in Germany rarely appears on the must-lists - see cities in the country, and they are often overlooked by tourists. This beautiful city of culture on the banks of the Leine River is home to some of Germany's most important cultural and historical institutions, which illustrate the rich history and cultural heritage of the people and culture of the country.
In the centre of the city is the Leineschlossbe, which also houses a number of museums, galleries and other cultural institutions such as the Natural History Museum and the Hahnen Museum.
The ethnological collection is the oldest in the German-speaking world and includes the remains of the Hahnen population as well as artefacts from the city's past. The museum includes the Staatsgalerie and the Landesgalerie, which houses a collection of more than 100,000 objects from around the world. It houses natural historical artifacts, including fossils of animals, birds, plants, animals and plants from around the world and a large number of human remains.
In addition to Sprengel donations, the museum also houses a collection of 20th-century art works owned by the state of Lower Saxony and the city of Hanover. International loans complement the collection, which houses works by artists from all over the world as well as from Germany and other countries.
In the following section you will find a quick overview of the museum and its history as well as information about the city of Hanover. Due to its central location in Germany, there are also many train options available, you can find more information on the timetables on the website of Deutsche Bahn. The first point of contact in Hanover is the train station in the city centre, only a few minutes "walk from the main entrance.
The building, which is now located in the Kunstlerhaus Hannover, was later renamed Landesmuseum and in 1933 renamed Landesmuseum. The museum was named after the famous German art collector and diplomat and his collection. The Lower Saxony State Museum comprises a state gallery and a collection of more than 100,000 paintings, drawings, sculptures and other works of art.
The Sprengel Museum, founded by Margrit and Bernhard Spinner, dates back to the 18th century. The museum acquired a collection of paintings, drawings, sculptures and other works of art from the late 19th and early 20th centuries by artists such as Johannes Gutenberg, James Joyce, Leonardo da Vinci and others. A collection donated by the artist Niki de Saint-Phalle can be seen in the Museum für Moderne Kunst in Berlin and in other museums in Germany and abroad.
The Kunstverein Hannover and Sprengel Museum Hannover are jointly presenting an exhibition of works of art from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The exhibition focuses on the work of British West German artists who lived in Lower Saxony during the British zone. The British artist and winning model Reg Butler, on loan from the Tate, and Bernhard Spinner, born in 1940, are presented in a new exhibition in the Burgstraße of the museum, which covers the period from 1842 to the end of the Second World War and into the 1930s.
The Sprengel Museum is one of Germany's most important art collections, including works by artists such as Hanoverian-born Kurt Schwitters and Hans-Heinrich Schmitt. It is located in the city centre and houses some of the world's largest collections of modern and contemporary art, as well as the largest art collection in Germany.
The original museum was created in the possession of chocolate magnate Bernhard Sprengel, who bequeathed it to the city of Hanover in 1969. He donated 2.5 million marks to the art collection and the museum to be built, and ten years later, in 1979, the purpose-built "Sreungel Museum" was opened.
After an exhibition in 1981-82, Walter Hanel (1930) donated 115 drawings to the museum, while Tomi Ungerer (1931) donated 237 drawings.
The show also shows that they have much more in common than one might think: The Royal Gardens in Herrenhausen are certainly the most famous landmark in Hanover, but they also enjoy international prestige. Also known as GrA 1 / 4 Ne Lunge, it is the Tiergarten, which is one of the largest gardens in the world and the second largest in Germany after Berlin, and also houses some of the most important museums and galleries in Germany.
Unfortunately, the original castle was bombed during World War II, but in 2009 the city of Hanover decided to rebuild it with financial support from the Volkswagen Foundation. On the west side of the lake is the Niedersachsen Stadium, built in 1954 after the Second World War.
The rather small museum complex on the north shore of Lake Maschsee extends into the anthracite-coloured building. Kramerstraße can be considered a part of the city that still retains the atmosphere of the old Hanover and in which there are some beautiful half-timbered houses.
