Liechtenstein Garden Palace

Next to the Liechtenstein City Palace, the Garden Palace is the second significant Baroque building in Vienna belonging to the princely Liechtenstein family. The Garden Palace has an eventful history behind it. For over twenty years, it was home to the Museum of Modern Art, which is now located in the MuseumsQuartier under the name mumok – Museum of Modern Art Ludwig Foundation Vienna.

Although the Liechtenstein Garden Palace is no longer a museum, it now houses parts of the art collection of the Liechtenstein dynasty, one of the largest and most important private collections in the world. The art collection includes art by Rubens, Raffael, Rembrandt, and other masterpieces from the early Renaissance to the High Baroque.

There is also porcelain, an extensive collection of bronzes and one of the best surviving French ceremonial coaches - the "Golden Carriage" from 1738. A particularly valuable exhibit is the Badminton Cabinet, the most valuable piece of furniture in the world. The great variety of paintings, sculptures, furniture, porcelain and tapestries, together with the architecture of the Liechtenstein Garden Palace, conveys the pleasant and noble atmosphere of a family collection.
