Geisa's newest cultural venue:

The ANNELIESE DESCHAUER Gallery is Geisa’s newest cultural venue and the newest offering for visitors to the city. In the Rhön Biosphere Reserve, the land of open distances, the gallery opens up new vistas and creates space for diverse inspiration. The futuristic-looking cube was presented to the town of Geisa by Werner and Anneliese Deschauer in 2018.

On the first floor, works of art from the collection of Anneliese Deschauer are on display. Among them are works by important artists such as Gabriele Münter, Marc Chagall and Salvador Dalí.

In addition, changing special exhibitions and events on exciting topics from art, culture and science invite visitors.

The studio in the basement offers adults and children the opportunity to become artistically active themselves through the Förderverein Kunst, Kultur und Wissenschaft Geisa e.V..

The exhibition on the upper floor provides insights into selected Geisa life stories. It presents the life and work of famous and lesser-known Geisa residents. Amazing exhibits from Geisa’s 1200-year history await you in the city museum.
