During my recent visit to this magnificent museum I was very pleasantly surprised to notice a new arrangement of its permanent collection. From the start (Titian) to the end (Vermeer) of the paintings collection there is in every room an easy to grasp explanation of the respective topic and period. After enjoying it once again, I then visited the collection... More

We visited Vienna especially to see Bruegels Childrens Games. The building is a work of art in itself, and so many important works of art to see. Don't miss this lovely museum.

One of the great art museums of Europe, housing the extraordinary Habsburg collection and things added since. A must-see.

Museum full of wonderful paintings. Since I prefer antique and ancient art over the art of 10-18th century, I did not expect much. However, the antique collection is also awesome! Sumeri art, ancient greek art, egyptian sarcophages and mummies, jewels, roman sarcophages. I was walking with my mouth wide open. Also, the building itself is amazing, wonderfully painted ceilings and... More

This is one of those museums you can spend days in. I assume that the most popular portion is the Kunstkammer which contains countless exotica amassed by the Habsburgs. It took me four hours to get through just these galleries, but it was definitely worth it. I recommend watching the documentary The Great Museum prior to your trip; it is... More

The museum itself is a piece of art. It was my very first time at the museum and I loved it a lot. Great artwork and also excellent gift shop with some real nice jewelry which I bought. They had a great Egyptian section that was beyond spectacular. I would go there again next time I am in Vienna.

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.
