It is really hard to say which is more beautiful the building or what is exhibited in it. Should not be missed

Kunsthistorisches Museum can pose health risk to anyone who enters. Pay attention to the people resting downstairs – they must be experiencing all forms of Stendhal syndrome, and you will join them sooner or later.

Hands down my favourite museum in the world! The building, the collection, the presentation, the information... I cannot fault a single element. If only all museum were so well done. You. Must. Go.

This ranks as a great museum. Collection clearly one of the greats, the museum itself is gorgeous, and the audio tour is excellent. Highly recommended.

I was blown away by the artists on display at the Kunst Historisches Museum in Vienna. Rooms full of Rubens, famous Vermeer and Rembrant self portraits. Definitely worth a visit.

A nice museum for the art-lover, often with interesting and famous artist exhibitions. The art museum and the science museum were made in the mirror image of each other, facing each other symbolically and are quite beautiful.

KHM is a very nice collection with representative works by most of the important artists and representing most periods, however if you have ever been to any of the world's great art museums (Louvre, Met, etc) there is no compelling reason to visit this one unless you wish to see the nice collection of Pieter Bruegel The Elder or a...

The whole world should say «thank you» to the Habsurg royal family, for having donated in 1891 their enormous art collection to Austria and to Europe. The Kunsthistorisches Museum is simply the most important, relevant and basic musuem of continental Europe; you just have to get to London if you wish a richer experience, but the crowd will make you...

Very interesting exhibits and a spectacular building. I was especially interested in the Kunstkammer department, having visited many years ago. Especially fascinating: The automata and the videos showing their functions. The one negative remark for this section is this: There are ipads in each room so that -in theory- visitors can look up more details about the exhibits. But for... More

If for nothing else, go to see the Ishtar Gate and marvel at the scale and grandeur of human design thousands of years ago.

Staying in Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
