Art and exhibition hall of the FRG, Bonn
Three distinctive illuminated towers provide a welcome, a roof garden as a fifth facade, a series of columns representing the 16 Federal States - this is how the Viennese architect Gustav Peichl made the site unmistakable and emphasised the artistic significance of the building. The Art and Exhibition Hall of the Federal Republic of Germany (Bundeskunsthalle) on the Bonn Museum Mile was opened in 1992. The exhibition spectrum ranges from the fine arts and cultural history to science and technology. As the Art and Exhibition Hall does not own any collections itself, it relies on widespread national and international cooperation. A particular highlight is offered by the annual Museum Mile Festival on four days in May/ June with a diverse cultural programme.
