Beautiful minerals are my passion! I have been collecting aesthetic minerals for more than 40 years and this has resulted in the creation of a noteworthy collection. It has always been my pleasure
to share my collection with family and friends, and this has grown in to the idea of making it available to members of the mineral community and interested visitors.
Finally in 2019 I decided to turn my gallery into a Private Museum for Fine Minerals.
Since minerals have always been just a passionate hobby complementing my busy work life I need to restrict access to the Private Museum to the levels manageable and - foremost - enjoyable. For that reason, if you wish to visit the Private Museum and we haven’t met in person yet, I may ask you to produce a recommendation by a common friend.
- Visits by appointment only -
The Private Museum is located near Muellheim, a medium-sized town between Basel (CH) and Freiburg (DE). It is situated in a touristic area in the Rhine Valley close to the Black Forest mountains with numerous ancient Roman settlings. Among these there is an almost 2000 year old Roman spa in a nearby town named Badenweiler.
Muellheim can easily be reached by car, by train or by plane.
Muellheim is about 4,5 hours from Munich (via Stuttgart) by car (using highways A8 and A5). Furthermore it is only 1,5 hours by car from Sainte-Marie-aux-Mines. Hence the museum can conveniently be visited in conjunction with the Munich Show or the show in Sainte-Marie.
The closest Airport is EuroAirport near Basel/Mulhouse in France, it is about 30 min away by car. There are numerous flights to/from Frankfurt and Munich every day. Just make sure you leave through the "french exit" when looking for a cab or rental car.
You can also fly into Zurich/CH (1,5 hours away) or Frankfurt/DE (3 hours away), and then take a rental car or the train.
