The Leopold Museum is one of several museums in the museumquartier. The building itself is an interesting edifice quite a standout amid the more classical structures of the surrounding museums. We visited the Schiller-Klimt exhibition which mainly featured the works of Schiller and paid some homage to the influences that Klimt had on him. The works were displayed with extravagant... More

Amazing Museum devoted primarily to the art of Egon Schiele. From his early works to those just before his early death you can trace the development of the artist. Had a great special exhibit on Gustav Klimpt too.

This museum is part of museum quarters and nice place to have lunch as there is a restaurant and see Gustav Klimt's art work. Nice museum shop to buy art related items.

A must for any Klimt fan and lover of art in general. This modern gallery is well laid out, with a decent cafe and viewing area. The whole complex here is a great place to go for culture vultures

This is a remarkable museum, particularly for the Schiele fans. The Schiele exhibition is excellent, well thought out and put together, vast and not crowded. I commend the curators! I learned so much detail, particularly from the biographical notes about Schiele's life, work, loves and death along the walls and also from the short film where Frau Leopold explains some... More

The Leopold was our favourite museum that we went to in Vienna. We went there mainly to see Gustav Klimt's artwork but we both surprised at how much we loved Egon Schiele's work. There is a large collection of his paintings here and we spent a lot of time in the museum admiring them. I was only vaguely familiar with... More

We visited the museum during the Schiele retrospective. The whole building is modern but in the good way of the word – clear, user-friendly, focused on the content. And there is quite much content in there, I must admit I even preferred the Klimt exhibited there to the ones at the Belvedere. I wish I had more time to visit... More

This museum has the world's largest collection of Schiele's paintings and for me they were a surprise as they showed aspects of his work that gets very little attention, such as his landscape and urban pictures. The works are well displayed and there is a lot of interesting explanatory material in German and English about his life and the context... More

Staying in Neubau

Neighborhood Profile
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.
