Wolfsburg / Braunschweig
A combination of long-standing tradition in art and young institutions
Although the two cities are only 30 kilometers apart, they are completely different. Braunschweig, once the seat of the ducal palace, has a long tradition of collecting art, and is today home to the Herzog Anton Ulrich Museum and the Kunstverein. Wolfsburg was founded in 1938 and seeks to create a new identity for itself through art. It promotes popular contemporary art, in the Schloss and in the glass Modernist building that houses the new Kunstmuseum.
