The Leopold Museum is a unique treasure-house of Viennese Jugendstil, the Wiener Werkstätte and Expressionism. It is the most-visited museum of the city's hottest cultural site, the MuseumsQuartier, and it houses the most significant and largest Egon Schiele collection in the world, as well as masterworks by Secession founder Gustav Klimt. Tip: The museum's panorama windows offer a wonderful view of central Vienna with Maria Theresa Square and the Hofburg Palace.

I saw this museum on the day I flew back to London (Tip: Art galleries are amazing things to see on your departure day. They have cloakrooms to put luggage in and you are never rushed to leave) I had some seen some Egon Schiele the previous day at The Albertina and had been a bit skeptical but this museum... More

If you are a casual tourist with no particular artistic inclination, go to Albertina instead. However, if you enjoy 19th and 20th century art you will love this place. Heavy-handed on Schiele however.

Another giant monolithic structure on the MuseumQuartier, equally imposing, equally contrasting is the Leopard Museum. Made of limestone, it’s facade shines white in contrast to the mumok. While the name mirrors that of the Holy Roman Emperor, the Leopard Museum is actually named after the genesis of its collection, a guy named Rudolf Leopard. He collected tonnes of modern art...

I guess that Klimt is one of the best known and loved artists in the world, but whilst I knew of Schiele's work I didn't know until visiting the Leopold just how closely linked they were. I enjoyed the exhibition and the exhibition on Austrian landscaspe was a treat too. Well worth visit.

It is a stunning collection.Featuring over 40 paintings and approximately 180 works on paper, the Leopold Museum is the largest and most prominent collection with works of Egon Schiele worldwide. Very impressive works, with a good description of the life and art of the painter.

This is such a wonderful art museum and should be included in any itinerary of Vienna. We learnt so much about Egon Schiele - the collection is outstanding and there is so much information to go with it. We also really enjoyed the Gustav Klimt pieces. An absolute must-see.

When the original Superman movie came our in 1978 Marlon Brando was headlined as the star. Actually, he had just a bit part. Important part but just a bit part. Which brings me to the Leopold Museum. Headlined on the posters around Vienna and leaflets for the Leopold museum is the name Klimt followed by Schiele. If you are a... 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.
