Kaiserhaus Baden

Kaiserhaus Baden


The building on Hauptplatz, Baden, was purchased by Emperor Francis I in 1813; almost every succeeding year he came to Baden with his family on their summer health vacation. Spa and summer visitors always adored this ambience, originally drawn to it by the presence of the Imperial Court. Industrial magnates, inventors, bankers and factory owners set up villas in the styles of historicism, art nouveau and early modernism.  Many of these families who spent their summer in Baden were of Jewish heritage. They had a formative influence on summer life there until 1938. This exhibition in the Kaiserhaus is dedicated to them and their villas.
