  • Museum Oskar Reinhart is located in the Centre of Winterthur as a neighbor to the Kunstmuseum Winterthur, and it is one museum that bears Oskar Reinharts name. The second museum is the "Am Römerholz" his private would, as one reaches on foot in 15 minutes from the Museum in the city, or you can also run with the little museumsbus, which is a large taxi running around between Winterthur's museums. Oskar Reinhart (1885 – 1965) was the natural heir to the trading company. Gebrüder Volkart, which his grandfather had founded in 1851, and as his father had expanded, so among other things, the company traded with India. Oskar Reinhart was financially unable to do the art collection, which he also inherited begtragteligt larger. In 1940 he established Stiftung Oskar Reinhart, who was then the owner of the art collection. A museum was decorated in a former gymnasium, but could be because of the second world war could only open in 1951. Oskar Reinhart purchased still works while the war was on, but was extremely careful not to buy up stations in Germany, without he was acutely aware of where the images came from. Part of the collection, however, he kept the home in the Villa "Am Römerholz", which after death was turned into museum Reinharts and opened in 1970. This superb museum has its own reviews here on Trip Advisor. The collection in Museum Oskar Reinhart stretches from the works of artists from 1700-century onwards, the 20th-century classic Modernists. The largest part of the collection, however, are works of the romanticism artists from the 1800 century. The visit to the Museum begin naturally with works from the second part of the 1700-century. Here can be seen a large number of pictures by Anton Graff, among other things, some of the self-portraits as the painter performed regularly throughout his life. Other artists are: Adam-Wolff time Töpffer, Francois Ferrière, Louis-Léopold Robert, Jacques-Laurent Agasse, Jacques Sablet, Jean-Étienne Liotard, Samuel-Jacques-Louis Piot, Caspar Wolf, Johann Heinrich Füssli, Johann Melchior Wyrsch, Peter Birmann, Johann Jakob Biedermann, Johann Heinrich and Johann Ludwig Aberli Wust. 1800 is represented with works by artists such as Johann Casper Weidenmann, Karl Blechen, Christian Morgenstern, Johann Wilhelm Schirmer, Adolph von Menzel, Carl Spitzweg, Joseph Anton Koch, Eduart Gaertner, Georg Friedrich Kersting, Johann Christian Dahl, Franz Krüger, Carl Julius von Leypold, Wilhelm von Kobell, Conrad Hitz, Johann Pock, Ferdinand von Rayski, Hans Jakob Oeri, David Sulzer, Josef Georg Edlinger, Johann Wilhelm Schirmer , Moritz von Schwind, Johann Georg von Dillis, Carl Rottmann, Johann Martin von Rohden, Ernst Franz Ludwig Catel, Fries, Heinrich Bürkel, Ferdinand Georg Waldmüller, Friedrich Gauermann, Rudolf von Alt, Jakob Alt, Rudolf Friedrich Wassmann, Alexandre Calame, Diday, Rudolf Koller, Francois Robert Zünd, Adolf Stäbli, Johann Gottfried Steffan, Otto Frölicher, Albert Anker and Ernst Stückelberg. Especially breathtaking are the space with a number of works by Caspar David Friedrich, and as I am not of course Danish guest could avoid that delighted a fine picture of the Danish painter Christen Købke, which hangs in the same room. His first picture is from Dosseringen on Østerbro in Copenhagen. The late 1800-tal is represented with works by, among others, Giovanni Segantini, Ferdinand Hodler, Frank Buchser, Wilhelm Leibl, Fritz von Uhde, Arnold Böcklin, Feurbach and Anselm and then when to the first half of the 20th century and artists such as Sigismund Righini, Wilhelm Trübner, Giovanni Giacometti, Max Liebermann, Lovis Corinth, Max Slevogt, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner and His Toma, Karl Hofer. On the top floor of the Museum arranges special exhibitions. One should devote two – three hours to reach all the way around in the many fine spaces in this magnificent museum.

  • Rastoložen Museum in the city centre here, mostly Swiss and German artists. A very interesting and unusual painting that makes a strong impression. There is a very nice café where you can comfortably sit and enjoy a cup of tea with dessert
