  • Winterthur's Art museum is housed in a beautiful building, built 1912-1915 after drawings by architects Walter Furrer and Robert Rittmeyer. In 1995 the Museum got a modern extension, which, however, is not visible from the Museum's home. The Museum is operated by the private association Kunstverein Winterthur, who founded the collection back in 1848. From the beginning, the focus was on contemporary art, and the visit to this museum opens with a very nice collection of French works by Pissarro, Sisley, Monet, Toulouse-Lautrec, Degas, Gauguin, van Gogh, Henri Rousseau, Eugène Boudin, Odilon Redon, Félix Vallotton, Pierre Bonnard and Edouard Vuillard. Then continue with a number of later artists, including Georges Braque, Oskar Kokoschka, Erich Heckel, Max Beckmann, Pablo Picasso, Wassily Kandinsky, Juan Gris, Fernand Léger, Robert Delaunay, Paul Klee, Piet Mondrian and many, many others. You can on the Internet reading about all the artists, whose works are hung in the Museum. Remarkably for the Danish guests visiting the Museum is that the museum owns an image of Asger Jorn. But what really took your breath away me in this museum, was the first floor with van Gogh's, Monet's, Pissaros, Sisleys and the other French artists ' works. In the middle of the Hall stands a copy of Pierre de Wissant, one of the six people in the famous group the citizens of Calais. You can stand in front of the shape and view the next images hanging on the wall behind it: Pierre de Wissant between van Gogh's images of a summer night and the post man in Arles. Pierre de Wissant, next to the post man in Arles and Gauguin's picture of three cows in landscape with trees. Pierre de Wissant next to Monet's water lilies. And so on ... Magical! Kunstmuseum Winterthur is a great experience if you are happy for images of the impressistiske painters van Gogh and the classic Modernists. We must of course also visit Museum Oskar Reinhard, which is practically next door to the art museum and also the Sammlung Oskar Reinhard am Römerholz. You have museumspas, which can answer it, if you look at these three museums on the same day, then you have free transport with the little museumsbus, who is a taxi that runs between the different museums in Winterthur. The staff at the ticket office or at turiskontoret provides information on bus departure times.

  • A lot of good pictures, there are sculptures by Rodin. In General, strangely enough, from the collection remains a bit of a depressing impression (the collection of Reinhard more interesting). Disappointed that the ticket is not fixed at all facilities, and the more you pay, the more you look

  • In art museum exhibits a large number of works of art from different times and directions. For Switzerland, the price is not high, it is worth a visit.
