The Princely Collections

The Princely House of Liechtenstein owns one of the largest and most important private collections in the world. The Princely Collections (LIECHTENSTEIN. The Princely Collections) are the result of centuries of collecting by the Princely Family and its patronage.

The Princely Collections comprise masterpieces of European art from five centuries.

Patron of the arts

The Princely Collections were built up by the Princes of Liechtenstein over centuries. In the post-war period, however, the Princely Family also had to dispose of important art treasures in order to secure its existence.

Thanks to the active acquisition policy of the Reigning Prince Hans-Adam II, however, more than a thousand new acquisitions were made within a short period of time and the art collection was sustainably expanded.
