A regular stop on trips, this time we enjoyed the contemporary exhibition in the basement and woodcuts around 1900, skipping the Monet to Picasso having seen it twice before. The film stills that we popped into gave an insight into the development of movie publicity from the very early days of film.

We called here just as an aside after visiting the nearby Hofburg. Impressive selection of late 1800's art which is our favourite period. Exhibitions vary so see if it suits your taste.

We went mostly to visit the Monet to Picasso exhibition, which explores the journey from impressionist work in France through to the fauvists and then cubist works from Picasso. Great value, and a lovely calm ambiance. Picassos art was displayed with amazing luminescence it was quite spellbinding We also saw the Van Gogh pointillism exhibition too, equally vast and well...

I visited this venue for the very first time. They were showing Van Gogh plus many other famous artists. We required the use of a wheelchair, which we obtained from the cloakroom attendant, you just need to provide some ID. There is a lift available to enter the building

Klimts, Schiele, Kokosche, and many other wonderful Viennese artists are to be found here in a gorgeous palatial setting. Intimate feel to the museum, and a wonderful gift shop to take home a souvenir.

The exhibitions never disappoint. There is a mixture of the fixed exhibits and shorter period exhibitions. The building is worth a visit on its own.

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.
