Founded in 1832, this art society is one of the most renowned in Germany. Four individual or group exhibitions a year present the most significant contemporary art and provide a venue for lively discussion and dialogue. The Kunstverein has been located in the Villa Salve Hospes since 1946 and opens its doors to the interested public, taking on a role as a facilitator in the art world. The Villa, an early classicist city mansion, was built between 1805 and 1808 according to designs by Peter Joseph Krahe as a private residence and is in itself worth a visit.
