Museum Franz Gertsch

In its completeness, the collection provides a constellation that is probably unique for artists of distinction. It nearly comprises the entire works of Franz Gertsch from 1987 to 2004 as well as the unique cycle of the four seasons, which was created in 2007 - 2011.

In 1998, Willy Michel from Burgdorf, an entrepreneur in the field of medical products, together with Franz Gertsch decided to build and furnish a mutually supported museum. Willy Michel secured the financing of the entire project and established the Willy Michel Foundation which – together with a partial donation from Franz Gertsch – forms the basis of the collection. This includes the portrait Silvia I, the large-format paintings Gräser I-IV (types of grass) and Pestwurz (butterbur), as well as the Four Seasons.

In addition to changing exhibitions with a selection of the works of Franz Gertsch, the museum also regularly presents temporary exhibitions that show a variety of contemporary art. The interface between painting and photography is another focal point.

From Friday to Sunday, the in-house Artcafé spoils guests with salads, sandwiches and soups. On Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, the kitchen team conjures up a lunch menu. The culinary delights are also available as take-aways.
