The special exhibit going on until September 2017 has a lot of fascinating historical maps and other cartographic items. It is well-curated and informative. If you enjoy maps, you will easily spend 2 hours at the exhibit.

After visiting some of the other, rather overwhelming museums I found this one refreshingly simple. It has a simple story to tell through a well picked, limited number of exhibits. There was a special exhibition of the history of Sex in Wein which was really...More

The fourth district combines elegant tradition with
contemporary style and relaxed living. More than a
dozen town palaces and churches such as St. Charles
Borromeo have added glamour to a neighbourhood known
for its traditional retail and crafts shops, taverns,
cafés. Wieden is also home to Naschmarkt, Vienna’s
largest street market. Many bohemian types have found
their way to Wieden: meet them in trendy cafés and
