Heidi Horten Collection

Description

A new museum hotspot for Vienna: The Heidi Horten Collection has been showing works from Heidi Goëss-Horten's spectacular art collection in a renovated city center palace since 2022. Regular special exhibitions address various focal points of the collection.

Located right next to the Vienna State Opera, this private museum is the fulfillment of the vision of a passionate collector. Spectacular architecture meets a fascinating selection of high-quality works of art.

With great passion and sensitivity, Viennese-born Heidi Horten (1941–2022) built an art collection of international stature. Over the course of around three decades, she has compiled an impressive selection of several hundred paintings, sculptures and graphic works. The focus is on numerous representatives of modernism, neo-expressionism and pop art: Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, Marc Chagall, Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol, Gerhard Richter, Georg Baselitz and many more. A concentrated “best of” of international art history. Special highlights of the Heidi Horten Collection are the offset, seemingly floating exhibition levels with a cantilevered stainless steel staircase, the connected terrace, a tea room and a freely accessible museum forecourt with a sculpture garden. The result is a true museum island embedded in a classic Viennese Wilhelminian style ensemble.

Enjoy the special atmosphere of the house during a visit to the museum and immerse yourself in the history behind the works.
