High artistic quality and thematic variety have always been the guiding force in establishing the exhibition program, which has included art dating from 5000 BC up to the present day. Themes addressing a broader cultural context, such as prehistoric or non-European civilizations, have been featured in exhibitions like "Sudan", "Korea, The Ancient Kingdoms", or "The Gold of the Scythians". An interdisciplinary exhibition was first organised in 2005, and dealt with the subject of water. The heart of the exhibition program, however, is based on western art including works by Old Masters ("Madame de Pompadour" or "Frans Hals and Haarlem Painting") and classical modern art, featuring artists like Chagall, Gauguin, Giacometti, Kirchner, Magritte, Munch, or Picasso.
More than 80 exhibitions have been presented since the opening of the venue in 1985. In 2001, the Kunsthalle moved into new premises within the city block complex called »Fünf Höfe« (the five courtyards), which has been designed by the renowned Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron.
