The highlight is the Klimt collection, well presented and good narration. The other main attraction is the Egon Scheile collection but I'm not a fan.

The Leopold is housed in a limestone cube within the MuseumsQuartier arts and cultural complex which provides great, modern display spaces. Entry is free with the Vienna Pass. The highlight is the world's largest Schiele collection - I confess to being unaware of this great Austrian Expressionist before my trip to Vienna, but a short time in the Leopold turned... More

An amazing home of the Greats! Fabulously curated permanent exhibition highlighting Schiele - His influence from Klimt and Wagner are a great testament to the Secession Movement. The Story of Schiele's life was inspiring and the builiding is just as amazing as the work on display.

Nice exhibitions (saw one on tobacco packaging art in fin-de-siecle Vienna), but Egon Schiele takes your breath away.

The Leopold is a superb gallery and has a great mix of Austrian art from the greats like Gustav Klimt, changing exhibitions and other examples of impressionism and turn of the century Viennese art. It's a beautiful gallery and has an excellent lookout over the city in one section of the gallery. Definitely worth a visit!

This museum houses the largest collection of Egon Schiele's work, so this is a must see for any expressionism fan. There is also a significant sample of Klimt's paintings.

Reserve half of your day for a visit. Very educational. Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele was on exhibit the day I visited and it was worth my time.

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.
