I am a suspect. Because I do love the paintings of Egon Schile and Gustav Klimt. And they are very well represented in the Leopold Museum. By the way, the building itself is something. It deserves a visit even without the paintings... I spent there more than 4 hours and I promised myself to return...

I have little interest in the Secessionists, so not my scene, but visited on a combined ticket. However, I did learn a lot about Klimt and the place seemed well set out and well labelled. For anyone interested in this type of art I would think they would find a lot to be pleased with.

As a New Yorker, I was stunned to find the Leopold's exhibits so stunning. Beautifully curated with wonderful explanations in both German and English. The recent Wally and Schiele is quite amazing note, the elevators get crowded. Just use the stairs, if you can

The Leopold Museum is part of the superb Museums Quarter complex. The building, with its large, airy and light rooms, is used to wonderful effect. I really enjoyed learning more about Wally, Egon Schiele's muse. The context given to each of the paintings also added greatly to the experience.

We loved the light and space that the exhibits are displayed in. Beautifully laid out and excellently explained. A real education about turn of the century Vienna.

If you've ever had any doubts about the Secession artists Schiele and Klimit, visit the Leopold. For a start, the Ortner designed structure itself seems to stretch itself around the exhibits offering just the right amount of light and space to retain their intimacy but display their sheer skill. Schiele seems always balanced precariously between intense life, death and love... More

I suppose this is a place for art-lovers. I wanted to see some stuff about Vienna's history, perhaps related to artists, but this seems to focus just on the artists themselves.

Dear 276JAMES, thank you very much for your feedback! We are sorry to hear that your visit at the Leopold Museum didn't meet your expectations. Indeed we emphasize on Austrian artists from the last century, known as the "Wiener Moderne", especially on Egon Schiele and Gustav Klimt.

This museum has several wonderful Klimt paintings. There are also quite a few other secessionists which are worth seeing. They had a very god exhibition on Egon Schiele and his relationship with his companion Wally. Very well curated and a lot of interesting drawings and paintings. I ended up really enjoying Schiele. There is a very nice cafe on the... More

Staying in Neubau

Neighborhood Profile
Neubau
Vienna’s art district, Neubau buzzes with galleries, arts and crafts, trendy restaurants, avant-garde shops, and cafés. Neubau’s Spittelberg quarter with cobblestoned Spittelberggasse and Gutenberggasse make for a perfect stroll alongside Biedermeier houses and art shops. Don’t miss the historic courtyard at Amerlinghaus with its typical Pawlatschen galleries, a perfect hangout on a warm summer evening. Museumsquartier is Neubau’s undisputed highlight: the former Imperial stables house various top museums of 19th to 21st century art. If you love interiors, head for the Imperial Furniture museum (Hofmobiliendepot), one of the world’s largest furniture collections. Find your favorites among a dazzling array of Baroque, Biedermeier, Art Nouveau and Modernist chairs, sofas, cupboards, coat hangers, foot stools and wash basins. No weekend visit would be complete without stopping by a local café on a weekend morning for brunch.
