Even in the height of summer, this expansive gallery is almost all yours. Swoon at Monet’s immersive water lilies or recoil at Van Gogh’s famous self-portrait with his ear cut off. Alongside pastoral scenes of Switzerland’s past, the collection includes works by baroque Flemish and Italian painters, minimalist canvases by Mondrian, and a number of works by surrealists of the Dada movement. Don’t miss the spindly creatures from local hero Giacometti.
