The Municipal Gallery

The Municipal Gallery specialises in the works of local Karlsruhe artists and painters from the surrounding area. It also showcases European drawings and prints from between the 15th and 19th century, fine Japanese woodcuts of the 18th and 19th century and works from the Garnatz collection.

The history of the Municipal Gallery collection goes back to the 19th century, but it only moved in May 1981, when it opened within the Prince Max Palais. The next 15 years would see the gallery host over 60 special exhibitions. In the summer of 1997, the Municipal Gallery moved again to a new, more spacious home in Lichthof 10 of Hall Building A (Hallenbau A) on Lorenzstraße. Located at the same venue, it now shares a home with the Center for Art and Media (ZKM).
