600 square metres of exhibition space
The Forum Würth Rorschach is the museum area of the Würth Haus Rorschach. The basis of all activities is the internationally oriented Würth Collection comprising some 18,000 works, which Reinhold Würth has continuously built up since the 1960s. On approximately 600 m², the Forum Würth Rorschach presents changing art exhibitions on various topics. The sculpture garden around the house is a panorama of modern sculpture that blends harmoniously into the green space directly on the bank.
The Würth Haus Rorschach, designed by the Zurich architects Gigon/Guyer, is a special place for encounters, culture and enjoyment. After Chur and Arlesheim, it is the third Swiss location where Würth manifests its corporate culture in quality and design. The impressive interplay of the art of the Würth Collection in the Forum Würth Rorschach, the Lake Constance location and the modern yet timeless architecture are unique selling points that make the Würth House stand out as a unique location in the region.
The 14 museums and art galleries throughout Europe all promote the extraordinary concept of "art at the workplace" and take up central aspects of the Würth company such as modernity, internationality and quality in their art presentations.
The special: Admission to the exhibitions is free.
Cyclists welcome! A breather is recommended.
Forum Würth is located directly on the shores of Lake Constance and on the Bodensee cycle path. Cyclists are very welcome and are welcome to take a little breather. The KunstCafè or the Weitblick restaurant offer a delicious selection of snacks, cakes, cold and hot meals every day. What both have in common is a wonderful view over Lake Constance and an extraordinary atmosphere.
Only until 18 August 2019
Literature can be seen. Hans Magnus Enzensberger. Günter Grass. Hermann Hesse
Three authors, three visual artists who couldn't be more different. Hermann Hesse traces a poetic truth in his sensual colour compositions. Günter Grass portrays the everyday magnificence and horror of the 20th century and Hans Magnus Enzensberger invites to a playful, enigmatic and intellectual examination of word, text and their meaning.
Until 15 March 2020
Tomi Ungerer - Drawings, Collages, and Object Art from the Würth Collection
The French artist Tomi Ungerer is one of the most important and provocative illustrators of our time.

In addition, there are 140 books ranging from social satire to fairy tale books, including modern children's classics such as "The Three Robbers" or "The Moon Man".

"From head to toe"
Since time immemorial, representations of human beings have been able to depict more than just their physiological conditions. Whereas in earlier centuries the portrait in particular was destined to portray the respective human image at reﬂektieren, today the arts are increasingly turning to the human body in its entirety, which is reflected in the title of our exhibition: With "From Head to Toe", Forum Würth Rorschach invites visitors to an exciting discourse on the changes and constants of the current human image on the basis of selected examples from its own collection.
Located directly opposite the Rorschach railway station on the Bodensee cycle path.
Parking is available in the immediate vicinity at the lido, Kurplatz and during the day in limited numbers in the Würth Haus Rorschach.
A sufficient number of bicycle parking spaces are available.
