Geymüllerschlössel #1

The Geymüllerschlössel  was constructed after 1808 as a “summer villa” for the merchant and banker Johann Jakob Geymüller (1760–1834). The edifice shows a blend of Gothic, Indian and Arabic styles as was common in pleasure buildings of the period. The architect is unknown to date. Today the villa is decorated with original furniture from the first half of the 19th century and a site of the Museum of Applied Arts/Contemporary Art (MAK).
