Museums in Kassel - from Old Masters to Death to Contemporary art
Discover the unique cultural landscape of Kassel, and experience the cornucopia of museums, galleries and exhibition halls in the North Hessen
metropolis. The spectrum ranges from the Old Masters of art history to contemporary art, from technology and natural sciences to literature
and cartoons to cultural history. Kassel has one of the most important collections of museums in Germany. With the opening of the Fridericianum Museum in 1779, Kassel wrote museum history – and it has continued to do this to the current day. The Fridericianum was the first purpose-built museum in Europe, and today stands as a central location for contemporary art from across the globe.
