I used google maps to find this place. It's stunning. Ludwig Van Beethoven used to perform concerts there during his life in Vienna. There is a beautiful hall inside with amazing colours. Unfortunately I was unable to see inside.

This is a very distinguished research institution and it resides in a beautiful building next to the Universitatskirche.
The building itself has 2 fountains (one on each end) and provides a beautiful photo-op of both itself and the nearby church.
The Academy of Sciences was built in 1753 and is one of Vienna's most elegant buildings, with exceptionally beautiful architecture. It is located beside the Jesuit Church, which is a must see.

Old University Quarter
North of St. Stephen’s Cathedral, Vienna suddenly turns small, winding and medieval, opening up to legendary places such as the Basilisk sculpture at Schönlaterngasse, as well as glamorous baroque façades, courtyards and churches. Take 45 minutes for a casual stroll through Bäckerstrasse, Sonnenfelsgasse, Köllnerhofgasse, Grashofgasse, and Schönlaterngasse. This quarter is packed with stories
and legends that will enrich your Vienna experience.
