Museum Haus C.G. Jung

The former residence of Carl Gustav and Emma Jung-Rauschenbach is a place of remembrance of extraordinary presence. The house as well as the gardens bear the distinctive signature of C.G. Jung and reflect significant facets of his personality. The couple’s estate has thankfully always remained in the possession of their descendants and been passed down from children to grandchildren who have maintained the house, its interiors and the surrounding gardens with great love and care, thus preserving the place’s unique character.

The mansion was transformed into a “small but exquisite” museum in 2018. Interested persons and groups can now visit the estate, which is both a scholarly house as well as a domestic museum, granting visitors a sense of the hospitality of C.G. and Emma Jung-Rauschenbach and allowing them to catch a glimpse of their scholarly and family life. Hopefully, the house will become a place of encounter and exchange in the spirit of C.G. Jung.

Throughout his life C.G. Jung spent a great deal of time painting, drawing and sculpting. To him, visual art was much rather a source of inspiration for his contributions to the understanding of the human psyche. In this special exhibition, the Museum C.G. Jung House presents a number of artistic works from his early years. Some of these drawings and paintings have never been shown in Europe before.
