Alas, we were tight for time, so could not go around the KunstKammer again - we left friends going around it who were suitably overwhelmed. We saw three wings, including the Flemish and will return on our next trip.

Simply an amazing museum with what I would say is almost too much to see. My husband and I had thought this stop would take 1.5 to 2 hours max but after 3 hours "rushing" through we still hadn't seen everything! It is definitely worth getting the audio guide and taking your time admiring the masterpieces. Ideally I would suggest... More

This is a must for art lovers. Dürer, the Cranachs, Holbein, Arcimboldo and the wonderful Raphael. The cafe at the museum is a rare gem.

Massive collection of art (mostly paintings) by the old masters. The museum itself is beautiful inside and out and well laid out and organised. If you love art history, you may need to take your time and spend the whole day here.

What an amazing display of fine art! This is a MUST DO when visiting Vienna. Plan on spending several hours at a minimum and a couple days would be better. The building itself is a work of art and the galleries are laid out according to type and era of the art. Get the audio guides to expand your experience.

Having the Vienna Pass meant we felt able just to dip in and out of the somewhat overwhelming collection of art and sculpture as well as Greek, Roman and Egyptian antiquities. The building itself is all marble columns and statuary with gilded murals (some above the impressive marble staircase by Gustav Klimt). At the top of the staircase is a... More

I try to visit this museum each time I am in Vienna. The wonderful collection of art housed here is magnificent, but the building itself is also a work of art. Just walking up the main stairway is an awe-inspiring experience. How sad, I have often thought, that so many people pass by this great house of art and never... More

Neighbourhood 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 centre. 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.
