Angelika Kauffmann Museum

Top choice in Vorarlberg

This ultramodern museum houses rotating exhibitions in summer of Swiss-Austrian neoclassical painter Angelika Kauffmann’s works. The artist had strong connections to the village where her father was born. A ticket covers entry to the neighbouring Heimat Museum (Heritage Museum), a pristine alpine chalet. Displays of traditional painted furniture, extraordinary headwear, hunting paraphernalia and filigree iron crosses focus on rural 19th-century life.
