Really really interesting stuff in here! I expected to be pretty bored (my partner can look at paintings for days! :-)) but the Egyptian rooms were fascinating as were the numerous paintings. Thoroughly enjoyable, well laid out. The building is stunning too. Lots of photo opportunities.

An incredible building with fantastic exhibits. Visiting is an amazing experience. The building is absolutely stunning inside. What a treat. Allow lots of time to take in your surroundings as well as what is shown inside. There is an amazing amount of precious artefacts. If you like the building itself as much as we did, make sure you visit the... More

The Museum of Art History houses the imperial portraits of the Habsburgs as well as an extensive art collection to rival the best in the world. If you want to see what these monarchs looked like, this is the place to be. Otherwise, the Old Masters is aptly represented. Among the most famed is the painting Tower of Babel and... More

We enjoyed the place, but we haven't even anticipated that such a place can contain a piece of Egyptian pyramid or a sarcophagus dated from 1500 BC or sophisticated ivory carvings from 16th century! I think you'll need 4 hours to really appreciate the place. Unfortunately we had just 2, so we had to run through some of the halls.... More

I really love this museum. I spent 3 hours here but still not enough. I will definitely come again if happen to be in Vienna.

This is really what you want a national art gallery to be.There are so many works you have seen in books and on line and here they are! For any fan of the Northern Renaissance or Rubens this is paradise. On top of that the building itself is beautiful with wall and ceiling paintings, some by Klimt. But the best... More

This art museum must not be missed by any visitor. Just entering the building causes one to gasp at it's magnificence and then exploring the maze of corridors on several floors and being engulfed by the superb collection of art on display makes this museum a world beater. You will not see everything, there is so much to see,but you... More

Me and my girlfriend had the chance to visit the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna the last week of February. The Museum is easy to reach and located in the middle of the "Museum District". It's very beautiful from outside and inside is very classy and fascinating: it displays the major artworks of the european artists. We loved it and I... More

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.
