Sprengel Museum Hannover

The Museum houses a world-renowned collection of 20th century and contemporary art.

The Sprengel Museum Hannover is right up there with the most important museums of modern art. Works by prominent expressionists such as Picasso, Chagall and Kandinsky are a must for fans of 20th century art. The collection includes works of German expressionism and French cubism, also taking in abstract art from the post-World War Two period.

Movements such as minimal art, Art Informel, Nouveau Realisme, concept art and post-minimal art are represented as well. A special highlight: Kurt Schwitters, one of the state capital’s most famous sons, here presents a reproduction of his legendary ‘Merzbau’ work – a bizarre, imaginatively decorated spatial sculpture that will make an indelible impression on visitors. An impressive new three-storey building will be added to the museum by the end of 2014.
