In the context of the Hamburg-wide Open Memorial Day, the Kunstverein too will open it's doors. The premises in which the Kunstverein is located nowadays, originally were built as the waiting room of the Harburg train station. The room with a wooden coffered ceiling is one of the few remaining assembly rooms with a free-standing ceiling construction and at the same time the last historical station waiting hall in Hamburg.The Harburg station, which went into operation in 1897 was already the third railway station in Hamburg. It is a brick building
built in the style of historicism in Romanesque and North German Gothic forms (1896/97, Hubert Stier).
We are very pleased that Rainer Kolbe from the "Deutschen Gesellschaft für Eisenbahngeschichte" will be giving guided tours on the history of the waiting room again this year. The digital offer for Monument Day 2021 can be found here.
