Europe’s cities offer a wealth of contemporary art galleries, making the continent an important destination for art lovers across the world.

Those looking to admire both established and leading artists, as well as seek out new and emerging talent, flock to Europe’s top galleries in the obvious choices such as London, Berlin, and Paris—not to mention Basel—but also to lesser-known hot-spots like Istanbul, Budapest, and Athens.

While London may be the dominant center, offering a one-stop-shop option for traveling Middle Eastern, Russian, and Asian collectors, in addition to home-grown ones, the European art markets continue to thrive and excite. What’s more, Europe’s galleries are usually “must-go” destinations if you are following an emerging European talent.

But the European market is eclectic, scattered, and in constant flux. Berlin is still a hotspot, but other hubs are on the rise. Selecting the continent’s top commercial galleries can be a tricky task. artnet News has picked 55 contemporary galleries from all across Europe that you need to know. The carefully selected group combines well-known galleries that enjoy widespread recognition, listed by location, as well as smaller spaces that deserve to be in the spotlight.
