Huge exhibits. Would spend a whole day here or split it in two. Look for the animatronics. Very cool.

The best art museum I visited this year, and that includes the Prado. The number of amazing works of art on display are breathtaking. Best of all is that I can still down in the galleries and take it all in on a comfortable sofa located in nearly every gallery. This made visiting the entire collection much easier. Even though...

I was absolutely blown away by this museum. The building alone is worth going to see. The way they incorporated all the works of art with the building is visually stunning, precision and expert planning has really made this museum a mind blowing visit. I would travel back to Vienna just to visit here again. Be prepared to spend a... More

Well worth a morning just taking in the fantastic range of old masters. We spent much time just sitting in the main rooms admiring the detail of some of the pictures.

Outstanding collection! Allow yourself the whole day for exploring. We came at 1 pm (museum closes at 6 pm) and unfortunately had to rush towards the end of our visit. Grab the audio guide which provides some interesting facts about some pieces.

Was advised to go here by a colleague just to see the cafe. Some nice exhibits in the halls, with the Egyptian section being of particular interest to me. However, the setting for the cafe is spectacular, both when viewed from inside the cafe and from above.

If there is one place to visit in Vienna, the Kunsthistorisches Museum may be it. More manageable than the Louvre, and with a range of pictures much narrower (from mid-1500s to mid-1800s, mostly), it has plenty of interesting things to see in every room. The collection of ancient Roman and Greek sculptures are terrific, but overshadowed by the marvelous rooms... More

Ok, many people said that you need "4 hours" or "all day." Really - not so much. I LOVED it - and it was a perfect last-day-in-town activity. I got there about 11:45am, and bought a ticket for 15euro. Good admission price for what you get. I was done by 2pm and I saw ALL the highlights, and what I... More

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.
