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.

“Loved, loved, loved this fun and quirky museum”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

I hadn't even heard of Hundertwasser before I visited with Kunsthaus with my family just after Christmas. I was looking for a museum that would be interesting for my 11 and 9 as well as me and my husband and this was a home run. The building is super cool, fun and green, making it the perfect setting in which to display the artist's singular, purposeful work - in the same joyful, creative spirit as Gaudi, certainly, but not derivative. I loved the quotes throughout the museum by Hundertwasser himself, which gave insight into the artist's passion and purpose. Aside from his artistic talent, he is worth admiration for his environmentalism. I am a fan now and so are my kids, with whom Hundertwasser's art - so full of joy and color and life - really resonated. The temporary exhibit on photo booths was fun, if not profound. You can even take your own photo booth picture (we did) in the lobby for a couple Euros. Parents be advised that the Photo Booth exhibition includes some hilarious, but definitely rated R pictures of knuckleheads, um, exposing themselves in photo booths. It kind of sneaks up on you so walk a few paces ahead of the kids. Make time to have lunch or a snack in the funky museum cafe - the food was surprisingly good and the service was quite friendly, as was the patient, helpful guy at the ticket counter. The Hundertwasserhaus apartment block is a quick walk from the Kunsthaus and worth a visit, as well. Overall the most fun and unique museum experience I've had in a long time - highly recommended!

“He is a child forever and you feel like a child with him”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

Who would beleive that cracked and crooked tiles could be a language of architecture?! He is playing the simpliest and the most available materials like a child that always preferes debris over colorful carefully designed toyes. In this surrounding even I feel worthwile in spite of scars, wrinckes and tires. It excepts everything and everybody has a right to exist.

“Especially nice in winter”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

I've seen the summer photos and I'd say its especially nice but crowded during winter. You'll find everything you'll need on this shopping street and lots of restaurants from the cheaper eatery to the super posh... Right in the center there's a nice spot to take some shots of Stephansdom.

“Get a combination ticket!”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

It's a bargain if you bought a combination ticket, as you could go here and visit the Imperial treasure and also got one other museum free.
I love going to Kunst as I'm a fan of Gustav Klimt, you shouldn't miss the cafè !

“Do not go out of your way to see this”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

Having persuaded my sister that we should visit this attraction, it turned out to be a bit of a disappointment. The outside was quite shabby and, even though it was supposed to be open until 18.00, the museum had just shut when we got there at 16.00. If you are visiting something else in the area, then do go and have a look but don't make a special journey to see it.
