We came here to visit the Basquiat exhibition which we did enjoy a lot. It was a little tricky to find the entrance which was hidden behind some art installation.

At the Schirn Kunsthalle in Frankfurt am Main, a really impressive artist is on show and his exhibition is unmissable: Jean-Michel Basquiat and his "Boom for Real". The gallery is in the heart of Frankfurt, at Römerberg, a lovely square lined with old and picturesque...More

Schirn Kunsthalle is strategically located near the Romerberg off to the east side. The building itself is not notable, but the Basquiat exhibition was a chance to know the artist's life with film, photos, drawings, paintings, and objects. Buy your ticket online for 12 Euro...More

I saw a decent exhibition on art in the Weimar Republic. It was crowded though so lots of human Tetris familiar to London commuters. There was a multimedia guide but inexcusably it was only in German. Very disappointed.

I had the opportunity to see several outstanding art exhibitions this past year. "Splendor and Misery in the Weimar Republic", currently at the Schirn Kunsthalle, was right up at the top. The thematic exhibition features around 200 works by some of Germany's most famous artists,...More

Although I know nothing about art of the Weimarer Republik I really loved the "Glanz & Elend" (glitter and sorrow) exposition. It turned out that I did know about the themes of this expo from literature and even "Cabaret" the musical. So, buy a ticket...More

I visited Frankfurt twice in the last six years. The special exhibitions in both cases were great (Moholy-Nagy´s photos and Dioramas). Be alert of Schirn offer if you visit Frankfurt.

We are a well travelled and cultured couple with eclectic tastes and open minds. We relish the opportunity to be challenged by art exhibitions and nudged out of our comfort zones. Modern art has a lot to offer and we applaud any exponent who can...More
