About the Museum

The Sammlung Scharf-Gerstenberg traces common threads that weave through the evolution of the art of the 'fantastic,' starting with works by Giovanni Battista Piranesi and Francisco de Goya, and culminating in the museum's largest suite of works: the Surrealist art of such giants of 20th-century painting as Max Ernst and René Magritte. The building once housed the officer barracks of the Gardes du Corps while at the same time diverting the view from the stables, which have both since been renovated into exhibition spaces. Following these renovations, the Sammlung Scharf-Gerstenberg opened its doors to the public in summer 2008.
