Renowned art, natural science e & technology in Vienna’s museums
Your museums in the Austrian capital
World-famous artists, especially Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele and Friedensreich Hundertwasser, are everywhere in the city of Vienna. As a city of artists, it is therefore not surprising that art museums in particular can be found in Vienna. But there are also many natural science, technical and historical museums that promise you an interesting visit during your holiday in the city on the Danube.
Meeting place for art & culture in the MuseumsQuartier
The MuseumsQuartier is an absolute hot spot in Vienna as the largest cultural area in the world and close to Vienna’s Hofburg. Art museums, restaurants and cafés meet here offering an interesting mix of old and new. The Leopold Museum, the Mumok, Museum of Modern Art, the Kunsthalle and many others show works by famous artists such as Andy Warhol and Egon Schiele. You can admire both contemporary and modern works of art. The MuseumsQuartier is especially worth a visit in summer because a wide variety of open air events such as classical music concerts and literature festivals promise the highest cultural enjoyment outdoors.
Baroque architecture & art at Belvedere Palace & Museum
As an impressive Baroque palace, Belvedere Palace welcomes you with a masterfully landscaped garden and magnificent rooms, galleries and halls inside the palace. In addition, you can view valuable Austrian art treasures from the Middle Ages to the present day. Be captivated by the works in the world’s largest Klimt collection such as “The Kiss” and international paintings by Vincent van Gogh or Oskar Kokoschka.
Art, history & nature around Vienna’s Hofburg
Even more art awaits you at the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna. Located near Vienna’s Hofburg, the museum houses numerous works from international art history, including masterful creations by Rubens and Dürer. The Albertina also whisks you away into a world of its own, created by world-renowned artists such as Pablo Picasso and Claude Monet.
In the Natural History Museum, on the other hand, you can take a closer look at artefacts from Earth’s history. Your children, in particular, will be amazed when they see the huge skeletons of primeval dinosaurs during your family holiday together in Vienna. A digital planetarium, important archaeological finds such as the “Venus of Willendorf” and much more make for an exciting time in Vienna.
A landmark of Viennese architecture: the Hundertwasser house
What definitely should not be missing of course: a detour to the colourful and green façade by the Viennese artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser. But not just the Hundertwasser house but also the nearby Kunst Haus Wien testifies to the artistic work by the former Viennese artist.
