Museum Oskar Reinhart

Since 1951 the former grammar school at the city park houses around 600 pictures and drawings by Swiss, German and Austrian artists. We owe this to the Winterthur art patron Oskar Reinhart.

Kunsthalle

Experimental art knows no bounds in this cultural institution, strongly rooted in the local area, yet cosmopolitan in outlook. The "Dritter Raum" ("Third room") provides space for meetings and a library with artists' publications from the London collection "Publish and be damned".

Villa Flora

For decades a visit to Villa Flora was a privilege, which was reserved only for the family of the owners and a close circle of friends. Thanks to private initiative by descendants of the collector couple Hedy and Arthur Hahnloser-Bühler, Villa Flora has been open to the public since 1995. Discover artistic highlights and typical home decor of the middle classes around the turn of the 20th century.
