The Kunsthalle building is one of Bielefeld’s best-known landmarks. It is in the center of eastern Westphalia, between the old city center of Bielefeld and the edges of the Teutoburger forest. The view from the front of the building features the distant St. Mary’s Church in the new city and the Sparrenburg castle. The 1968 international style museum by Philip Johnson Museum was renovated in 2002, and thanks to the initiative of museum supporters, the Förderkreis Kunsthalle Bielefeld e.V., the building is illuminated by night.
