Owner description: EXPERIENCE HUNDERTWASSER UP CLOSE: Art - Achitecture - Nature - Vision Two intriguing museums experiences await the visitors at the KUNST HAUS WIEN. The Museum Hundertwasser presents the world's biggest collection of Austrian exceptional artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser (1928 -2000): his world famous paintings, fine art prints, tapestries and architectural designs. Here you can immerse yourself in his imaginative world of art inside and out - colorful walls and uneven floors in the interior, the artistic façade with tiles and color fields on the outside. "Tree tenants" grow from the windows, plants and flowers inhabit the rooftop and inner courtyard. In Vienna's first "green museum" one can sense Hundertwasser's visionary mind and experience his ecological engagement on site. Beyond that the KUNST HAUS WIEN is Vienna's premier house for photography exhibitions: changing exhibitions introduce the biggest names of photography to a wide audience.

“Like a candy house”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

Great place to visit if you are a Hundertwasser fan. They have a permanent exhibition of his work. But the temporary Elliot Erwitt photography exhibition was simply amazing. Really excellent photography. The house itself is like something out of a children's book.

“Hundertwasser gallery (research his work before visit)”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

It is not clear in the Eyewitness Top 10 Vienna exactly where this gallery is and it took me a while to find it. This, and the nearby Hundertwasserhaus are unusual and worth a visit. Both can easily be done in 2/3 hours.

“Dream come true for a life long Hundertwasser fan.”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

My first memory of art is a big Hundertwasser poster hanging over my bed when I was little ... ever since than I have been a huge fan .. But what neither prints nor books can show you ... only the originals can, is the texture of the 'mixed media' that FH used on pretty much everything ... that at times he would fold a new painting, kept it in his pocket for a while, then unfolded it and put it on canvas ... all part of the process.

This is just a great collection and not far then from the Hundertwasser house (about 400m)

“Amazing Hundert Wasser exhibit”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

Wow! I'd never heard of this guy (not a huge art guy), but now I'm a fan. Really interesting work. And they have a ton of it. We spent 2 and a half hours there, and like I said, I don't even like art that much.

“Quirky but nice”
Reviewed July 25, 2012

Loved it all the way, it has a unique character and the Klimt ambiance is the ultimate Viennese cultural flavour! The colours, the floors, the art make a very full experience!
