Rainer Maria Rilke Foundation

The Rainer Maria Rilke Foundation (in French: Fondation Rainer Maria Rilke) was established in 1986 in Sierre, Switzerland, on the patronage of the municipality. Its goal is to promote the knowledge of Rainer Maria Rilke's works, through a museum, exhibitions, lectures, conferences, publications and a festival. The famous poet spent the five last years of his life in the city, living in the Château de Muzot, a 13th century fortified manor on the edge of town.

Since 1987, the foundation installed the museum in the Maison de Courten, built in 1769, located at the rue du Bourg 30 in Sierre.

    Surely all art is the result of one’s having been in danger, of having gone through an experience all the way to the end, where no one can go any further.
    Rainer Maria Rilke (1875–1926)

    Surely all art is the result of one’s having been in danger, of having gone through an experience all the way to the end, where no one can go any further.
    Rainer Maria Rilke (1875–1926)

    Simplicity of life, even the barest, is not a misery, but the very foundation of refinement; a sanded floor and whitewashed walls and the green trees, and flowery meads, and living waters outside; or a grimy palace amid the same with a regiment of housemaids always working to smear the dirt together so that it may be unnoticed; which, think you, is the most refined, the most fit for a gentleman of those two dwellings?
    William Morris (1834–1896)

    Surely all art is the result of one’s having been in danger, of having gone through an experience all the way to the end, where no one can go any further.
    —Rainer Maria Rilke (1875–1926)

    It were a blessed sight to see
    That child become a willow tree,
    His brother trees among.
    He’d be four times as tall as me,
    And live three times as long.
    —Catherine Maria Fanshawe (1765–1834)
