4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2015 NEW

Friedensreich Hundertwasser was an Austrian architect who thought architecture should fit in with nature. This is a curvy, colorful melange of tiled exterior, hilly sidewalks, and is just all around something to see. It does not take long to walk around the outside of the place, and it is very worth seeing. There is one actual Hundertwasser shop. Avoid the... More

I the autumn we went to a Hunderwasser exhibition in Denmark, where we live. Here we learned about the Hundertwasserhaus in Vienna. So the most natural thing was to go a see the place live. That is really a must do when in Vienna. It is hard to put words on, but if you at all like Hubdertwasser you should... More

Really cool (and free). A popular spot - we were there relatively early on a winter Sunday morning and already quite a crowd was gathered taking photos. We walked from UBahn station Landstrasse Wien Mitte which took about 10 minutes. The Hundertwasser Gallery is opposite with many souvenir shops selling Hundertwasser and Klimpt merchandise (also has public toilets).

vegetation on the balconies, porches and rooftops. small cafe-bar flooded by vegetation and 3 souvenir shops. A site that you must see if you have some time you could spare.

This building was partly awesome partly disappoitment. There were lot of things to see, but if you have visited Barcelona, you may ask yourself: is this copy?

Not sure why most people are commenting it is hard to locate the Hundertwasserhaus. We didn't even know the existence of the place but passed by it as we were on Tram 1 (Hetzgasse stop). Our original plan was to take Tram 1 around the Ringstrasse but did not get off before the tram crosses the river. As the MRS... More

Many-many diminutive beautifully funny details, take your time to look at it closely and from different angles. Don't know how to live inside these crazy lines, though :-)

This is a must see place in Vienna. Completely different from traditional architecture of Vienna the Hundertwasserhaus is an residential building modified where each dweller can change the facade making their own artistic intervention. Walk by the entire block to have different views of the building and then you can buy a souvenir at the official Hundertwasserhaus store.

I was here in 2013 and 2014. Came back to feel the thrill again. You think he was a crazy architect. He was an alien. The place is marvelous with lots of souvenir shops, places to eat take photos. Careful with tax free shopping. We bought a handicraft item for 75 €. Didn't get any money back. It has to... More

A marvellous view of the designer's concept for blending living space and nature with curved lines and fantastic colors and creation of community space for its inhabitants
