Highlights were the Durer drawings

The Durer drawings and drawings by other famous artists were wonderful. The setting in such a beautiful palace was special too. There is good gift shop and a lift to all floors.

The museum is housed in an impressive building and is hosting an unforgettable exhibition on Monet and Picasso at present, as well as one on Egon Schiele.

This is a very famous but accessible art museum that can turn you on to many of the local artists that we don't often hear about in the US. Also, one of the best museum bookstores and giftshops I've come across. Great for posters and finding some cool gifts to bring back to your art loving friends back home. This... More

I went to see the Anton Schille exhibit. But stayed to visit the Imperial Apartments. The rooms have descriptions in English of the furniture, paintings, and how the rooms were used. In the end room, if you are fortunate, you can see Albrecht Durer's painting Young Hare. It is only displayed twice every ten years.

What a great Museum, in the centre of Vienna. very light and airy and no barriers to hold you back from the paintings and statues so that you can really view them up closely. The Picasso and Monet exhibition was fabulous but you could also see other artists work:- Chagall, Juan Miro, Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Rubens, Sedlacek, Giocammetti, Rodin,... More

If you are taken by art and incredible paintings, this is where you should go while in Vienna. The museum has more than 1500 paintings by Monet and Picasso. I won't say anything else for the names speak louder.

This dramatic building is where everyone meets. It's the beginning point of many tours. The museum is extensive and enjoyable. A bit pricey to enter, but I received a discount coupon on the free walking tour.

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.
