The Kunsthalle is the most recommendable destination if you feel like experiencing art.
The Kunsthalle is located in Reutershagen near the Schwanenteich. You can’t miss it, if you go by tram line 1, 4 or 5, there is a stop named “Kunsthalle”.
During the GDR, the Kunsthalle was the only gallery in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern where you could watch period art. Today the gallery consists of 520 pictures and about 200 sculptures and reaches back to the 20s of the 20th century. The gallery also covers a widely spectrum of art of Mecklenburg and Vorpommern.
If you just want to have a watch on the gallery you don’t have to pay an entrance fee. But from time to time there are special exhibitions, where you have to pay an entrance fee.
From the 22nd of May to the 26th of June there is an exhibition called “Elemente” by the artists Johannes Müller and Udo Rathke. “Elemente” covers the forces of elements in its works of art by using basic forms and colors (elemental techniques). The work does link digital video, drawn pictures and printed works.
There are two exhibitions starting on 2nd of july and are held until the 14th of august. One is by Richard Serra who exhibits drafts and printed artwork. The other one displays drawings by the taiwanese artist Yung-Fa Li and is called “The dialogue between Mountains and Oceans”.
You should visit the Kunsthalle to experience that Rostock has far more to offer than just a beautiful beach and a vivid nightlife. International as well as local artists display their art in the Kunsthalle so you can learn a lot about Rostock, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and the world.
