Excellent collection, perfectly organized, photoamateurs friendly, a bit more high entrance fee than it could be.

I have loved this art gallery since I first went in my teens. The architecture is striking, set across the park from its mirror image housing the Natural History museum. Such a privilege to be able to take my 8 year old daughter there at last - I loved the collection of Breughels here and knew that they would especially... More

The Kunsthistorisches Museum is a must see if you come to Vienna. Set in a beautiful building with well laid out exhibits there is something for everyone. The museum is huge and it took my partner and I the whole day to do it justice (with a short coffee and cake break in the middle - one of the most... More

As said, there are several exhibitions. We took them all, but it is too much for only one visit. So......take your time.

Staying in Inner City

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.
