I knew Hundertwasser's the colourful paintings and architectural designs since many years but never had the chance to read about him or visit an exhibition related to his work. Kunsthaus is rather difficult to be found in Vienna but it worths the effort.The permanent exhibition is dedicated to Hundertwasser's work. Take time and watch the artist's bio film. He says... More

Even though all of Hundertwasser's art isn't to my taste, I love his architecture and his visionary outlook. The exhibition (artwork, architectural models etc) and the building it's housed in, gave me a fascinating insight into the man's philosophy and life. Thankfully we all have different tastes in art, so some people will enjoy this place as much as I... More

We went there for SHOEting stars exhibition during Vienna fashion week. I would kindly advice every fashion enthusiastic to visit this exhibition because personally, I found it very inspiring. Exhibition does not even include futuristic and artistic shoes, but also videos and photographies.

One big disappointment, fairly small, hard to get to it, and it’s style was not to my taste. After visiting Gaudy places and creations in Barcelona this place looks like a poor childish imitation. I am sorry for the time I wasted; there are many other places to visit in Vienna so my recommendation is that you can skip I... More

We made our last minute decision to visit the place after the prater. We had some hard time communicated with the staff at the train station for the direction to Kunsthaus but they were patience and friendly though. They wrote us the tram station 'Radetzkyplatz' on our city map and we managed to reach there successfully but we still had... More

The exhibition was just okay but not much for the fee and also the restaurant was not that welcoming. The staff at the restaurant didn't bother to look at us even, and finally we left the restaurant without ordering anything.

My girlfriend and I went out of our way to stop by Kunsthaus on account of all of the positive reviews and unfortunately I just don't get the hype. There are so many interesting museums and art exhibits within Vienna that I just don't think this one is worth going out of your way for. Maybe if you've run out... More

Great building - Hundertwasser style - with one floor full of his primary works and one floor full of amazing graphic work. Definitely worth the visit!

If you like offbeat art you'll like this. The art work is in general very bright and abstract and it was interesting to learn about the unconventional artist.

Regular visitors to the Kunsthaus as an elderly friend lives close by. The latest exhibition despite its naff name was a revelation. We had no idea of the wacky world of art shoes. In every possible shape and material, designed for everything but comfort. The oddest was the video of a man licking a woman's shoe, then biting off the... More
