Von der Hey­dt-Mu­seum Wup­per­tal


The in­ter­na­tion­ally renowned mu­seum at­tracts art lov­ers with its large col­lec­tion that is presen­ted in dif­fer­ent sec­tions. The col­lec­tion in­cludes art from the 16th Cen­tury up to the present age. It fo­cuses on im­pres­sion­ism, ex­pres­sion­ism and the twen­ties.

Lovers of Impressionism have come to the right place in visiting the Wuppertal Von der Heydt Museum: the museum's collection dates back to donations from the Von der Heydt banking family, whose interest primarily lay in the paintings of the 19th century, and Impressionism in particular.

The museum, which is now housed in the former Elberfeld Town Hall, shows selections of its important collection in ever changing contexts, with the museum focusing on different topics to allow for new perspectives on works by Cézanne, Gauguin, Monet, Munch, Picasso, Rousseau and other famous artists.

Further highlights of the collection are paintings by the 16th and 17th century Dutch masters, 19th century painting and drawing and primarily 20th century Expressionist painting, making this Wuppertal museum one of the most important and internationally-famed art locations in Germany.
