Just brilliant! The collection of Egon Schiele alone is phenomenal. A young Austrain artist in the early 1900's his collection, the largest in the world in mega impressive. Add in the Klimpt's and other major artists and this is an excellent collection!

Maybe we picked the wrong day (Thursday April 13), but if you are unfortunate enough to attempt visiting the Leopold Museum in a wheelchair, or with a relative in a wheelchair, please understand that the lift access to the main entry door is hidden around a corner and not properly signposted. When you approach the main entrance you will need... More

We had a truly superb visit to the Leopold Museum, set within the Museums Quartier of the City. The building itself is well worth seeing - a contemporary feature of the quarter which is elegant from the outside and most definitely fit-for-purpose inside with its light staircases and airy display areas. The museum is home to one of the largest... More

This stunning contemporary building houses a unique collection of Austrian arts and crafts of the late-19th and 20th centuries, including many paintings and drawings of Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele and their local peers. There's a thrilling display of Viennese furniture of the early 1900s, as well as ceramics and examples of their decorative arts and crafts. All the pieces... More

I came to the museum first and foremost to see the artworks of one of the Austrian masters of expressionism - Egon Schiele, and I wasn't disappointed. The Leopold Museum takes you on a fascinating journey through the prints and paintings of the great master. From the first moment your eyes set on his artwork, you get carried away by... More

Egon Schiele is one of my favorite painters. The Leopold has the most amazing collection of his life's work.

A good museum with interesting works from Schiele, Klimt, and Spitzweg. It is a 4 or 5 star if you are an art lover but I think many will be disappointed for a casual visit. Great notes on the background of each artist plus great video on Schiele. They were setting up a traveling exhibit so there should be more... More

You are spoilt for choice in Vienna but this is well worth the visit for the modern works of art. Plenty of space to sit and ponder, walk to the top floor and make your way down.

Leopold museum hosts the biggest collection of Schiele works. Although the collection comprises masterpieces of various artists , Klimt and Kokoschka included, Schiele’s art predominates. Since Schiele was a brilliant artist but maybe not a very conventional one, I would not recommend it for people who do not like his style. On the other hand, it’s definitely the right place... More

Staying in Neubau

Neighbourhood Profile
Neubau
Vienna’s art district, Neubau buzzes with galleries, arts and crafts, trendy restaurants, avant-garde shops, and cafés. Neubau’s Spittelberg quarter with cobblestoned Spittelberggasse and Gutenberggasse make for a perfect stroll alongside Biedermeier houses and art shops. Don’t miss the historic courtyard at Amerlinghaus with its typical Pawlatschen galleries, a perfect hangout on a warm summer evening. Museumsquartier is Neubau’s undisputed highlight: the former Imperial stables house various top museums of 19th to 21st century art. If you love interiors, head for the Imperial Furniture museum (Hofmobiliendepot), one of the world’s largest furniture collections. Find your favorites among a dazzling array of Baroque, Biedermeier, Art Nouveau and Modernist chairs, sofas, cupboards, coat hangers, foot stools and wash basins. No weekend visit would be complete without stopping by a local café on a weekend morning for brunch.
