Not huge, easily doable in a couple of hours and well worth it.

If you like Hundertwasser's work this gallery is not to be missed. Plus - there's a lovely cafe on the ground floor - the apfelstrudel was utter bliss.

Friedensreich Hundertwasser was a genius and a true visionary. The museum not only displays his work, but also displays his character, beliefs and philosophical words, that will be recognised for many centuries. A genius of his time! I found the shop to be a bit pricey and would have spent more if the prices were reasonable.

Is like a fairytale place. The architecture of this place make me think of Gaudi creations from Barcelona.

We spend a very beautiful time in this Museum that exposes very interesting pictures of Friedrich Unterwasser... The building is very special and beautiful, and the warm water circulating inside makes that you feel very well, like in a hammam... Great place ! just the prices in the shop are too much expensive !

This fairly off the wall building appears in a lot of the tourist maps and travel guides as a must see. I would however suggest that this is more of a tick in the box. There is a very quaint little shopping arcade directly opposite this building which in itself makes the trek over there worth while and a fantastic... More

It's a bit of a walk from the centre through some of the less desirable districts of Vienna but well worth the trip. We spent 3 or 4 hours looking at the various exhibitions and enjoyed a light lunch in their boutique cafe. Also picked up some great stocking fillers for the kids in the gift shop !

This is an excellent place to learn something about the work of Friedensreich Hundertwasser, very unusual Austrian architect and artist who hated any standardization or straight lines. The building, the former furniture factory, holds very good collection of his works.

Before our visit, I had an image of Hundertwasser* as a rather wacky architect who stuck coloured lumps onto buildings. The museum is eye opening about his nature-loving philosophy and his talent as a graphic artist. Examples of his wisdom: "You are a guest of Nature, behave" and "If we destroy our roots, we cannot grow". A number of his... More

Kunsthaus Wien is not crowded with tourist like the Hundertwasserhaus, and probably gives a better idea of the work of Friedensreich Hundertwasser. (And the bistro Tian is worth a visit too!)
