We spent approximately 4 hours and these were hours very well spent. The price to pay is very reasonable. The collection of valuables astounds the mind and is wonderfully displayed. We did not go on a guided tour or have any audio equipment and still got enormous value from just walking through the collections. We started in the art collection... More

It's the most beautiful museum I have visited! We didn't have enough time so we only had a quick look at most of the exhibitions, still took us 1.5 hour. You can spend a whole day here if you want! Entry price at 14€ including Neue Burg is very reasobable.

There's an enormous amount to see in this museum. I particularly enjoyed the clocks and jewellery, but there's something for everyone. I'm not really in to museum visits but this one kept us occupied for at least three hours and it could have been many more if we'd looked at more things more closely. The best exhibit in my opinion... More

Just the building itself is worth the visit. Every part of the building is a piece of art by itself - the floor, ceiling, molding, and many others. We only had time to quickly walk through the first floor where they exhibit paintings. Magnificent collection!

One of the best museums I have visited so far, with amazing exhibits and interactive touch screens. It was a great opportunity to remember and learn our history. Visit the stand that transforms you into an early human. It was really fun and you can keep the photo as it is sent at your email.

An incredible museum both for the variety of exhibits and the actual building. The place is so big that we only managed a few of the room. Well worth a visit

The museum is huge, having a very large number of different exhibitions too choose from. At the end of a winter day, when natural light becomes dimmer, it become impossible to see or even read the explanation in many areas. Some rooms are poorly lit and the visit becomes rather gloomy. Try to have refreshments on the cafeteria, but staff... More

We loved this art gallery . The entrance hall and staircase are amazing as are the collections. It is also beautifully laid out with informative labels close to the paintings. To top it of there is an excellent cafe for lunch and or tea.

Spent half a day (because that was all we could allot) and stayed to closing. Excellent collection with many of the treasures of the Hapsburg on display. Clean, well kept, organized - an all around excellent museum.

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.
