This is a museum which is part of a trio of museums covered on the one ticket. It has some nice pieces and is housed in a magnificent building. As I was at Ephesus in October, it wasn't as good for me as it could have been.

Small but interesting archaeological museum with things found near the Turkish city of Ephesus. If you expect something like the Pergamon Museum in Berlin, you will be disappointed.

This collection of antiquity pieces is really interesting but you will need the audio guide as a comprehensive explanation is given about individual pieces on a numbered basis. The collection is extensive and presented beautifully. The other attraction is the building within which the collection is exhibited, it is absolutely stunning.

As is known, Ephesus and Pergamum were two illustrious city in Asia Minor, where Greek cultural imprint mixed with strong influences from Eastern, non-Greek cultures (in this museum, the documentation on the cult of the goddess so-called Artemis at Ephesus is an eloquent sign of this mix). Those who know the beautiful Pergamon Museum in Berlin will be led to... More

A nice and small museum that you can visit and get plenty of historical information. You can finish the visit in about an hour. Be sure to get the audio guide because there no English explanations inside.

Displayed here are primarily architectural elements from excavations at Ephesos. Of particular interest would be the carved reliefs. There are also statues on display including a bronze athlete. It is oddly presented in the Neue Berg as it is mostly along stairwells and landings. Perhaps this is not the best place to display the objects.

We had a good look around at the ancient artefacts and sculptures that abound in this museum. Could do with English explanations for the various exhibits

Beautiful building, when we eventually found it and there are some interesting exhibits but we just didn't find it interesting enough. Not sure if it is the layout, not enough information or something else but if I'd paid to go in I would have been disappointed. We got the entrance with our Kunsthistorische tickets so nothing lost but it only... More

Hard to find and hidden away on the first floor at the back of the library section of the Kunsthistorische Museum is this collection of largely Roman statuary and artefacts apparently gifted to Austria by the Turks. Almost always completely deserted, you can spend time enjoying these vibrant and exciting depictions of gods, emperors and battle scenes in their purpose... More

If you're interested in architecture and archeology you already know this is a must do. It's not exactly what you'd expect to find in Austria but never mind just be amazed at this very significant, very important modern society unearthed during a 117 year long (Austrian) dig. It could be curated better but that doesn't diminish the experience plus the... 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.
