Room rentals

The ambience of the Staatsgalerie offers the perfect setting for your indoor and outdoor events. Outside regular visiting hours, we can open the museum exclusively for you and your guests. In the world-famous new building by the celebrated architect James Stirling, an auditorium, a foyer and a rotunda are available for receptions, ceremonies, gala dinners, symposia and workshops. The old building, which dates from the nineteenth-century, offers a classicist columned hall and the Metzler Hall seminar room. On request, you can also round off your special event with a guided tour or a workshop. Contact us on a non-binding basis – we will be happy to advise you.
