The Kunsthaus has put together a special range of events for the festive season.

For adults, there’s a Yuletide- and winter-themed guided tour of the collection every Saturday in December. Children aged 5 and over can have fun exploring works of art and get creative in the Sunday Christmas painting workshop.

There’s also a programme for families, with a chance to paint Christmas pictures and try out various crafts together. Santa Claus and his sidekick Schmutzli will be making a special guest appearance at the Kunsthaus, bringing lots of stories and a surprise for every child. There’s something for music lovers too, with opera singer Christoph Homberger and the Zugluft ensemble performing excerpts from Franz Schubert’s ‘Winterreise’ at various locations in the museum.

Gift ideas

Once again, there’s a special range of Christmas and winter items in the Kunsthaus shop, with everything from artistic Christmas cards to the popular nostalgic Advent calendars and candles with unique motifs.

Food, drink & Christmas tree

The museum café will be serving up mulled wine and Christmas delicacies alongside its normal range. And for the first time, a five-metre-high, magnificently decorated Christmas tree in the centre of the museum will be helping visitors get into the festive spirit.
