The City Museum of Villach, located in an old burgher residence, the Palais Crusiz, in the historic town centre, was founded in 1873 and offers numerous exhibits allowing a peek into the past. These are displayed in an area of approximately 700 m2. Don’t miss out on the popular branch museum either, the Landscape Relief Model of Carinthia, in Villach’s Schiller Park.
Here you will find all of Carinthia represented in 200 m2 on a scale of 1:10,000, impressing both adults and children alike. In the City Museum, which is open from the beginning of May to the end of October, you will gain extensive insights into the history, art and culture of the city and surroundings of Villach. Each year the museum dedicates a special exhibition to a particular theme. In 2019 you can explore the centuries old brewing tradition in Villach. The tower of the parish church of Villach also belongs to the museum. At 84m it is the highest church tower in Carinthia and offers a wonderful view over the city and surrounding area.
