Overview

The Museum für Ostasiatische Kunst (Museum of East Asian Art) is a haven of the exotic. The buildings and the gardens give the visitor a sense of having been transported to the Far East, even without entering the museum itself. Inside the house, which was opened in 1913, are a wide range of art-forms: Buddhist sculptures, paintings and all kinds of religious artifacts are on display. The Chinese sacred bronzes come from as early as the period between the 15th and the 3rd century BC. The museum also has examples of modern art to offer, for example, modern Chinese and Japanese paintings. Guided Tours are offered at midday on Sunday.
