The Hohenbuchau Collection is one of the largest and most varied collections of Northern Baroque Paintings, presenting virtually all genres produced by lowland artists during this period. It is not only distinguished by the exceptional spread of the art shown but also the quality of exceptional individual pieces (including works by famous masters such as Peter Paul Rubens) and paintings executed in rare collaborations between artists. The Collection encompasses a total of 98 masterpieces by Dutch, Flemish, German, Italian and Spanish artists.

The Princely Collection of Liechtenstein holds some of the most significant works of European Art created during the last five centuries. The princely Family of Liechtenstein has maintained and systematically added to the collection, pursuing a consistent policy in keeping with the Baroque ideal of the patronage of art that led to the creation of the collection. It currently includes 1,700 paintings as well as a vast amount of sculptures, engravings, porcelains, furniture, tapestries, Kunstkammer objects and hunting firearms, making it one of the largest and most important private art collections in the world.
