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. Tip: The museum's panorama windows offer a wonderful view of central Vienna with Maria Theresa Square and the Hofburg Palace.

A museum one can spend a whole day in. Apart from all the beautiful artwork by Schiele, Klimt, Kokoschka and other important and well known artists, apart from the really impressive landscapes at the ground floor, it has a splendid view of the city from the huge panorama windows. Taking photos is permitted.

As a fan of the works of Egon Scheile, I was naturally drawn to this museum. The collection was quite expansive and contained many important works of the artist from all periods of his life. I learned a lot about the artist and his life! The museum also featured art by Klimt, Gerstl, and others. The Museum is not too... More

It may be unfair to give 4 stars because modern art is not in the top of my list of things to see. If you love modern art, this is a great collection. The building itself is in contrast to other historical structures in the city. Collection includes works of Schiele and Klimt. The view from here is fantastic. The... More

Not really easy to find such a good museum with so many expressionist paintings. I loved Schiele. Overall, my favorite museum in Vienna

If you like Klimt, you can not miss this exhibit. As an added benefit, Egon Schiele is there in large numbers. The Egon exhibit has to be one of the largest ever put together. I had no experience with this artist until I visited Belvedere and saw a few examples of his work. Schiele is not widely known in the... More

Not as many Klimts as expects, but lots of great Schiele. Quick and easy museum right in the Museum Quarter.

Collections very spacially mounted, so you didn't feel terribly crowded. Amazing to see so much by Schiele. Also the Werkstatt designs were so modern. Became familiar with many artists of that era.

Prior to visiting Leopold, we had visited Kunsthistorisches in Vienna and Prado in Madrid. These are fascinating, classical museums with huge collections which take hours. Leopold is a museum with a soul. It takes about 2.5 hours to complete with no hurry. Museum is airy and wasn't crowded, so you can enjoy every painting intimately. Schiele collection is amazing, and... More

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.
