A 'must' for Asian art aficionados, Chinese, Japanese, Southeast Asian arts are all well represented. Fantastic temporary exhibitions related to main theme. Not to miss: superb collection of Indian paintings in the separate villa in the park.
A grand estate converted to house a plethora of archeological finds (with more masks than you can shake a head at) from around the world. The collections are extensive, especially the Chinese porcelains. Museum Rietberg is like a big old tree. Grand on the surface that has deep roots. The roots analogous to the many exhibition rooms located on the lower floors. There are so many examples in each of the rooms, it can feel overwhelming. Still, there is a great place to relax if you feel the need. The cafe opposite the ticket office has a fine collection too, of cakes and hot drinks.
Nice place. Surrounded by a beautiful park. The Cafe serves delicious snacks and cakes.
It’s my second time to visit here. The place is located where l can unexpected one, many people are always enjoying their free time by their own or their family, friends. The latest exhibition is ROSETSU. I am Japanese,but maybe It is impossible to appreciate such as lots of his paintings at once in Japan. I realized Japanese black ink SUMI brings great impact.
One of the most beautiful places in Zurich! Only the gardens and the building worth a visit.
