We make sure that your art is safe everywhere.

A warm welcome to Zilkens Fine Art Insurance Broker GmbH, your specialised insurance broker who finds answers to your art-related insurance questions.

Insurance products are complex. Being well-insured is therefore no easy task. There are numerous types of art insurance on offer, but which is the right one for your project?

It is often the case that the quality of insurance policies does not become evident until a claim arises. That is why, together with our customers, we prepare an individual insurance concept that is adapted sensitively to the respective customer’s project and describe to you the features of some of our individual insurance products.

Two characteristics define our brand essence. One is our love of art and the other is our customers’ absolute satisfaction. Only the consonance of these two factors makes us successful. Learn more about us
