I don't think I'll ever see more Reubens, van dycks, Bruegels,and other maters all in one place in my life. Awesome collection in stunning surroundings. Great deals on two-for-one admission to the Leopold, too.

I'm rather a philistine, so I wasn't sure whether to go to the KHM in my four days in Vienna. I'm extremely glad I did. It was wonderful. The building itself is beautiful. For a world-class museum, it was not overcrowded by any means (even in high season), and photos are allowed. The collection in the Gemaeldegalerie was superb. (The... More

We felt we should visit at least one museum on our visit to Vienna and decided to have a look. As it turned out, we spent hours looking at the various sections, more than planned, and still missed some parts. We were overwhelmed by the beauty of the place and the exhibits on display.

Huge collection displayed in a magnificent building. There is so much to see in this museum you need to focus on a couple of floors. The art collection is magnificent and beautifully displayed. There are lots of comfy sofas to sit on if you want to spend time admiring the pictures. Cafe very nice. Good coffee and great cakes. Very... More

Picture Gallery, sub-divided into thematic Schools of art. Greek & Roman antiquities, although fairly limited, are super b examples. Coins & other numismatics has to be one of the world's best collections !! Only downside: few captions, labels, or explanations in English.

This museum has a wonderful collection of artwork. Sometimes there are English titles of what you're looking at, many times not, which is frustrating. But a beautiful place. We had lunch in the cafe, which was nice.

The building itself is already an attraction. The Egyptian section is very interesting. Stop for a drink and look up. The giant dome will be just above you.

If you love fine art then make sure you visit this museum during your stay in Vienna. I found what is I think my favorite Holbein portrait here. Also I had no idea there would be a room full of Bruegel. Many famous paintings in an incredibly gorgeous building. Be sure to save time to have lunch or dessert in... More

The museum is huge, and with a 9 year old in tow, we could only cover about a quarter of it. Nevertheless, it was magnificent. The progression from Egyptian / Greek / Roman ages to the Hapzburg is very well covered and presented.

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.
