Henry van de Velde Museum

The Henry van de Velde Museum of Chemnitz art collections

The Henry van de Velde Museum is a branch of the Chemnitz art collections and presents exhibits from the extensive body of works from this collection: On the ground floor, the former dining room and music salon, which largely retain their original furnishings, give an impression of the authentic ambiance of the "living space" designed by van de Velde. On the first floor of the villa, a permanent exhibition in the former bedroom, children's room and bathroom provides an insight into the complete works of the versatile artist.


Thu, Fri, Sat, Sun                    10am - 6pm

Entry: € 5.00 pp

(Free entry to the museum for children under 18 years of age.)


The building is accessible to wheelchair users up to the second floor. We request that you preregister with the Villa Esche event service in good time.


On our guided tours of the overall work of art that is Villa Esche, in addition to the museum rooms you will also experience the rooms which are not part of the museum, such as the former study, mansard level and the attic. You can also visit both the showcase exhibitions of Esche's company and family as well as the restoration of Villa Esche.
