The Leopold Museum is a unique treasure-house of Viennese Jugendstil, the Wiener Werkstätte and Expressionism. It is the most-visited museum of the city's hottest cultural site, the MuseumsQuartier, and it houses the most significant and largest Egon Schiele collection in the world, as well as masterworks by Secession founder Gustav Klimt.

Wonderful gallery and museum with exhibition on about Primitive African art, Picasso influences and Gustav Klimt. Also housed some exquisite Bauhaus furniture designed by Josef Hoffman for Klimt's studio. Must have been a very stylish artist!!

I've wanted to see his art for a long time and it did not disappoint. The paintings were even more unusual and disturbing in real life, especially surrounded by the fascinating story of his life. The rest of the gallery was very good too.

If you love Egon Schiele, Gustav Klimt and Kokoschka, you must visit this museum. You will find very famous works from these artists. The building itself is very modern and open spaced in which the art works are at it's best. Also the temporary art exhibitions are a must visit. We've visited an exhibition about how Gods are portrayed in... More

You come here expecting the Schiele and Klimt experience, and you get it in spades! Extensive collection, very well narrated on the audio guide, with thorough notes (in English and German) alongside the exhibits. The navigation through the gallery could be more clearly defined (especially if you want a chronological route), and annoyingly we weren't offered the audio guide when... More

Lovely space, not too busy but most of all a well told story of Schiele and the Austrian contemporary art scene, including Klimt of course. Then go to the Belvedere - completely different space (old palace) and see the Klimt

If you are looking for a massive Egon Schiele collection, look no further than the Leopold Museum. It is staggering and not just voluminous, true quality.

The riverboat cruise did not give us enough time for museum hopping so I returned to Vienna for 3 days to assuage my desire to spend time in the Museunquartiere. What a wonderful decision. There was a full floor of paintings and drawings by the tragic Viennese artist Egon Schiele. Another floor included Klimt, Muller,Kokoska, and Josh Hoffman. I was... More

The collection of Herr Leopold now on public display. Very strong on Klimt, Siele and the Sessionists and their followers

Such a contrast from the breathtakingly bright and beautiful impressionism/pointillism exhibition at the Albertina and the overwhelming grandeur of the Kunsthistorische...For me, Klimt is the highlight here. One of the first paintings - the diminutive 'Seated Young Girl' - is simply incredible, as is so much of the other work. Schiele - whose premature death at 28 carries a permanent... More

One of my wife's big objectives on our trip, was to see as many Schiele and Klimt paintings as possible. Well, at the Leopold we hit the jackpot. Amazing collection, great building and not overrun with tourists taking pictures of the "must see sights".

Staying in Neubau

Neighborhood Profile
Neubau
Vienna’s art district, Neubau buzzes with galleries, arts and crafts, trendy restaurants, avant-garde shops, and cafés. Neubau’s Spittelberg quarter with cobblestoned Spittelberggasse and Gutenberggasse make for a perfect stroll alongside Biedermeier houses and art shops. Don’t miss the historic courtyard at Amerlinghaus with its typical Pawlatschen galleries, a perfect hangout on a warm summer evening. Museumsquartier is Neubau’s undisputed highlight: the former Imperial stables house various top museums of 19th to 21st century art. If you love interiors, head for the Imperial Furniture museum (Hofmobiliendepot), one of the world’s largest furniture collections. Find your favorites among a dazzling array of Baroque, Biedermeier, Art Nouveau and Modernist chairs, sofas, cupboards, coat hangers, foot stools and wash basins. No weekend visit would be complete without stopping by a local café on a weekend morning for brunch.
