We came to see here the exposition and the Beethoven fries. We were told only the Beethoven fries by Gustav Klimt could be seen as they were preparing for a new exhibition and paid the senior rate of € 4,50. The fries is of course...More

We kept this place (and others further away from the city centre) back for our second full day in Vienna. The building is of some interest in its own right, both architecturally and historically, and then there are the exhibits, with the Klimt frieze being...More

Waved our Vienna Pass - no good as this is a private attraction, so it had to be hard cash. The building designed to reflect the Secession Movement is a wonderful structure topped by the gold dome -all this can be photographed & seen from...More

I could spend hours watching the Fries downstairs. It's worth following the story as you study each piece of the art. each scene has a lot of details in it, and if you read up on the techniques used and messages carried within it makes...More

One of Vienna's most important pieces of architecture, the Secession Building does not disappoint. It has been beautifully restored and the exterior and entrance hall look as if they have just been completed. Sadly it was bombed in 1945 and most of the original galleries...More

This is one of those works of Architecture that is a serious work of Art itself. Worth looking into closely and if nothing else go see the Beethoven frieze.

Inside, there is the Beethoven Frieze, a marvel to behold. There is also much modern art, and your appreciation of such may vary as the exhibitions come and go. Myself, I enjoy the cutting-edge. Outside, the building itself is a delight to examine and the...More

The building is stunning, but the highlight is the Klimt frieze. Unfortunately on our visit the rest of the building was closed for an exhibition fitting, the entry fee reduced to reflect this. The frieze is an incredible piece and it's worth listening to the...More

I discovered that I liked Klimt’s work while visiting the Belvedere museum. So I took a visit to this fascinating little museum near the Naschmarkt. It’s a stunning Art Nouveau building from the outside, set away from any other building which is pretty rare in...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
