We've spent approximately 2-3 hours in the Kunsthaus, which I would say is really the minimum to enjoy the paintings and sculptures, but we could not stay more since it closes quite early.

Only two days in Zürich - visiting Kunsthaus is a must! Location-wise, it’s easy to access. Masterpieces like Van Gogh’s Self-portrait with Bandaged Ear and Pipe and Mark Rothko’s Untitled can be found. Definitely worth visiting!

This is pretty much the best museum in Zurich if you are into modern art paintings and sculptures. Maybe it is even the only one. The guided tours for the temporary exhibitions are extremely good and therefore worth the extra 6 chf. The guides always...More

Kunsthaus Zurich is a very approachable museum with a very good collection from masters to contemporary art including a very good impressionist collection. There is also a large collection of Alberto Giacometti's work which was donated by the family.
