Würth and the Arts
Art and culture are an integral part of the Würth Group. Their strong presence and the diverse activities are the expression of a corporate culture filled with life. The Würth Collection, which has been established by Reinhold Würth since the 1970s, is the centerpiece and focus of these activities. It includes more than 18,300 works from the late Middle Ages to Modern and Contemporary works – mainly paintings and sculptures. This important collection is the basis for the exhibition program of the five Würth museums in Germany and the ten associated galleries established at different European Würth companies.
Museum Würth, located at the Würth Group’s headquarters in Künzelsau, opened its doors in 1991. In 2020, Museum Würth 2 followed as the most recent addition. It is integrated in the Carmen Würth Forum Cultural and Convention Center designed by David Chipperfield Architects. The Hirschwirtscheuer gallery offers exhibitions in a more informal setting. Kunsthalle Würth, opened in 2001, and Johanniterkirche, opened in 2008 and exhibiting works of Old Masters, are two designated attractions in the town of Schwäbisch Hall, only 20 km from Künzelsau.
Since 1999, art galleries have been opened successively at international companies in Austria, Denmark, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain and Switzerland. The museums, which are always located on the premises of the respective Würth company, form an inspiring juxtaposition and blend of art and day-to-day business. The cultural and art activities are rounded off by cultural events and a hands-on introduction to art, mainly for children and adolescents.
