Bad luck on this one. Upon arrival we were turned away. A very kind professor explained that the Exibet is closed until November. He did not say what date in November but I hope to warn fellow travelers so they may avoid loosing the time...More

This fine building has so much history. It's a shame that Hitler was not accepted here either if the times he applied. Perhaps the world's history would be different. Worth a visit to walk where Hitler walked.

This is a small collection of truly outstanding works. Among them are a number of excellent Dutch and Flemish works by Ruisdael, Rubens, and others. It is right next door to the Secssion House, so stop by.

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 centre. The
