This is a very unique building designed by a very talented artist/architect. He also designed the Vienna incinerator to be 'beautiful', which it is. We saw it because of a bus tour that we took that stopped there. It is a little out of the way, and I don't know if it would be worth the trek from the centre... More

Forget the over-commercialised Hundertwasser Village opposite (which, it's true Hundertwasser did put his name too but you won't find much in there to detain you), this is the real deal: designed in 1985 to provide a complex of accommodation, it looks amazing whichever way you approach it. Located a little way out from the centre on the north bank of... More

I have been to many countries and cities and have yet to come across anything like this. It really is a neat building to look at!

This unique area is somewhat out of the way across the Donau Canal from the Prater park. It is a good forty minutes walk from the Reisenrad and Prater and close to fifteen minutes walk from the nearest metro which means it is positioned away from any other major site in Vienna. Down a side street contained the bulk of... More

The buildings are very unique. It is so different from the classic structures you meet everywhere in Vienna. It is easy to reach from anywhere in Vienna. The visit is short and it is free. There is also a Hundertwasser museum not far away.

This is a cool looking building, and there seems to be a museum attached. We didn't go in the museum, and I don't really think this is worth a visit unless you like museums.

It was not what I was expecting but loved to see the free styled architecture in Hunderwasserhus. Next time when someone picks up on my lines not being as straight as they maybe should be, I will have this attraction in Vienna as inspiration and a wonderful comeback. The colours too are interesting and I now have a colour palate... More

I loved being inside those colorful walls feeling like a pianist when I stepped up and down the stairs! In the end I enjoyed the coffe in the little cafe!

Unless you pay for a guided tour of the Hunderwasserhaus, you are limited to the view from the street and side alley. That said, it is a beautiful structure, if you like flowing organic styles. And it also can be a welcome break from the eye-candy at the Hofburg and other castles.
