Kunsthaus Zürich

Switzerland's largest art museum inspires with its light-flooded extension by David Chipperfield, as well as with one of the most important collections of art in the country.
Due to a fire, the Moser building remains closed until further notice. The Chipperfield building across the street is open regularly.

At the Kunsthaus Zürich, art enthusiasts and novices alike can immerse themselves in the world of the Old Masters, discover Swiss artists such as Giacometti and Fischli/Weiss, or admire Impressionist or contemporary art. Installations such as the immersive “Turicum Pixelwald” by Pipilotti Rist, video installations, temporary exhibitions, workshops, and guided tours make a visit here an unforgettable experience.

In two buildings, the Moser building and the extension designed by David Chipperfield (opened in 2021), the Kunsthaus presents the largest collection of Munch paintings outside Norway, famous names such as Picasso, van Gogh, and Chagall, and leading representatives of the Expressionist movement. In addition, it features key works from late-20th and 21st centuries, for example by Warhol, Rothko, and Beuys.

With its light-flooded, cuboid design, the Chipperfield building is also a highlight for architecture fans. Visitors are welcomed by a spacious central entrance hall, which is connected to the Moser building via an underground passage. With a design store, a bar, a banqueting hall, and the “Garden of Art”, the new building creates an organic connection to the surrounding neighborhood.
