The Schubertiade Quarter in Hohenems
Museums and exhibitions
No other place offers more to see on the subject of Franz Schubert than the two Schubert museums in Hohenems. Encompassing more than 20 rooms in historical buildings, the Franz Schubert Museum and the Schubertiade Museum give a survey of the great composer's life and reception history. References to Schubert can also be found at the other museums belonging to the Schubertiade Quarter – even at the Nibelungen Museum: After its rediscovery in Hohenems, the Nibelungenlied became popular quickly and prompted Schubert's friends to give each other names from the epic poem. Important classical music artists from the 19th and 20th century and Hohenems' significant and multifaceted cultural history constitute additional thematic key aspects of the Schubertiade Quarter's museums and exhibitions.
