I wanted to see the Munch exhibit and came away happy that I did, although with all the information that was given about him, I also learned how totally messed up his mind was. It took about an hour to see the complete exhibit. He was severly depressed and it showed in his work. Then we went into the other... More

Don't miss this wonderful gallery if you are interested in art. It contains "minor works by major artists". But what works they are! Albertina was on my must see list, and I was not disappointed.

Me and my husband visited Albertina, the art museum housed in Habsburg Palace, not only for the permanent exhibit including Monet, Renoir, Degas, Cézanne, Matisse and Picasso paintings but for the current exposition at the moment of our stay in Vienna, which comprised a selection of Degas, Cézanne and Seurat masterpieces as well. The ticket was 11,90 euro, but for... More

We (unintentionally) caught the final day of the Munch exhibit, along with the Pippal and the Monet bis Picasso shows. Really nicely put together (although the Munch exhibit was PACKED in the final rush). Get the audio guide to add some dimension to what you're seeing. For a break from intensive art viewing, check out the handful of palace rooms... More

The Munch exhibition (ending ~24/1/16) was a real highlight, but the 19th and 20th century collections were also highly worthwhile. Unfortunately for me I had only a limited amount of time and did not see the Hapsburg apartment or the photographic collection and had only a quick look at other areas - there were a couple of interesting Goyas there...

I would recommend this museum for the Edvard Munch lovers as there is a big collection with some of his famous works such as scream.

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.
