This is a large, beautiful building that now houses primarily European art in a series of rooms that you wonder through. As with many galleries, there are masterpieces scattered among art that seems to be there secondary to its age (i.e., when it was painted). That being said, much of the art is well worth seeing, the building, itself, is... More

Great collection and stunning building. One of my favourite art museum in Europe. I wish I had visited here twice during my holiday., because there was just SO much to see that I recommend to visit here multiple times if possible. You don't want to miss anything!

A huge collection of paintings and other types of classic artwork. For a five stars rating I was missing more "positive" feelings. All the paintings seemed quite depressive and dark. I was expecting to see impressionism and romanticism paintings there. But it could be that I'm just too amateur in understanding art.

If you love classical art you can't miss this place. Better to concentrate each time on one floor, it's too huge to see everything in one day but it's a pity to miss even one corner of this place.

Get the audio guide. It has interesting stories about many of the works (not all). There are places to sit in every gallery so you can study the pictures. The most interesting parts are the old paintings chronicling Austrian history. I didn't think much of some of the artifacts but overall it was worth the price I paid and the... More

If all you do is visit the first floor (which can easily take several hours) you will not be disappointed. the bldg itself is worth a visit. and the collections of Dutch, Flemish, German, Italian, Spanish and French paintings are outstanding and beautifully displayed. Breugels!!!

Although I was there with a group, I found the museum captivating if you like 16th-18th century art/materials

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.
