Museum

Frauenbad

The Arnulf Rainer Museum unites an architectural jewel with the work of the internationally acclaimed contemporary artist.

The clearly delineated structure of the building of the Frauenbad from 1821 – which is located on the site of the former Frauenkriche – is based on a design by Charles de Moreau, one of the leading architects of French classicism. After bathing stopped at the site in 1973 the building changed use, to become a national exhibition centre. The opening exhibition in autumn 1977 was an Arnulf Rainer retrospective.

In 2006 the decision was made to dedicate the exhibition centre as a museum to Arnulf Rainer, who was born in Baden. The Arnulf Rainer Museum, outfitted to the highest technological and aesthetic standards, was opened in 2009.
