The Park-Villa Rieter is a villa in Zurich used as a museum building . The villa takes its name from the large industrial family Rieter from Winterthur , who had the house built from 1886 to 1888 by Alfred Friedrich Bluntschli in the Rieterpark , which is also named after them .

Together with the Wesendonck and Schönberg villas and the Haus zum Kiel , it forms the Rietberg Museum , a museum for non-European art.

In the three-storey Park-Villa Rieter, a little away from the Villa Wesendonck, further specimens and pieces from the Museum Rietberg are on display. In the basement of the villa there is a music hall in which events accompanying the exhibitions can be held.

The main entrance faces north and looks out onto the terrace of Villa Wesendonck.
