An overview of

Museum Villa Rot

Museum Villa Rot realizes three art exhibitions per year on a wide range of relevant social topics. Its aim is to make current positions and tendencies in contemporary art accessible to a broad public. The international solo and group exhibitions deal with important topics of our time and contribute to cultural identity and education. In the cultural landscape of Oberschwaben, the museum and its special atmosphere proves itself as a unique venue for culture, arts, and classical chamber music.

The History of the

House Villa Rot

The Villa Rot, home to Museum Villa Rot, was built by Baron Raymund Fugger in 1912. In 1925, Alexandra von Hornstein acquired the property and bequeathed it to Feodora Christ in 1932. In 1933, Feodora Christ married cellist and conductor Hermann Hoenes. The couple turned the villa into a place for music, arts, and culture in the years after 1945. Their art collection is the cornerstone of the foundation with the same name established by Museum Villa Rot in the former "Fuggerschlösschen" on August 28, 1992.
