This collection belongs to the noble Lichtenstein Family, one of the biggest and most important in the world. In the final days of the Second World War this private collections was taken to safety from Vienna to Vaduz, the capital of the principality of Liechtenstein. A decade ago it was given back to Vienna and the family has 'reopened' their Palais Liechtenstein that was previously closed to the public as a museum. Make sure you also visit the magnificent library!
The paintings are complemented by porcelain art works, a large collection of bronzes and one of the most beautiful remaining French state coaches. Really impressive....
A particularly valuable exhibit is the Badminton Cabinet, the most valuable piece of furniture in the world. The great variety of paintings, sculptures, furniture, porcelain and tapestries, together with the architecture of the Liechtenstein Garden Palace, will make this visit very special. You will experience a pleasant and noble atmosphere of a family collection.
Insider Tip: Every Sunday from 2 to 3 pm in the Hercules Hall visitors to the museum have the opportunity of enjoying an enchanting Sunday Afternoon Concert.
