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.
Insight into the Princely Collections
Parts of the Princely Collections can be seen in the Garden Palace and the City Palace in Vienna. The two jewels of architecture have been part of the property of the Princely House of Liechtenstein for over 300 years. Prince Hans-Adam II had the two buildings extensively restored; the Garden Palace was able to open in 2004, the City Palace in 2013.
