“A small insight into a fascinating artist”
Review of Klimt Villa

Klimt Villa
Ranked #222 of 674 things to do in Vienna
Attraction details
Reviewed 17 July 2015

This is very much off the beaten track but well worth the journey. It is three U-Bahn stops further on from the Schonbrunn Palace, and then five minutes' walk. Although the the original garden house has been considerably enlarged since Klimt worked there, the displays give a good idea of what it would have been like for him. The displays are a little static but they will be making some improvements over the next year or so. However, it is still worth visiting now if you love Klimt and his work. Do check the opening times before you head off because it is not open every day.
Although the the area is entirely residential, there is a charming tea shop ( Teenorissimo) on the corner of Wittengasse, on your way. See my separate review for that.

I am a Klimt lover, and last week we visited Klimt Villa in Vienna. I was disappointed with this attraction. The admission fee is 10 euro, and there are only four to five rooms to see. The furniture is a replica (not original) and the canvases are just prints. Unfortunately I did not feel the spirit of Klimt, because everything is new. However, the garden is lovely.

Of Klimt's personality.
Lived here 1911 to his death in 1918 and where some of his most important works were created.
Phone or web site for guided tour or just do it yourself. Lovely gift shop especially the local artist jewellery. Allow half an hour. Open Thursday Friday and Saturday 10am - 6pm. Other times upon request. Enjoy!

Having lived there for some time and visited in Vienna for the last 30 years I only came across the Klimt Villa on this trip. It is the studio that Klimt used from 1911 to his death in 1918.
Later a first and second floor was added to the original building, built around the ground floor studio.
It is a short trip on the 58 tram from Hietzing U-4 station towards Ober St Vet. Go to the end of the line, walk back 50 yards and along Feldmuehlgasse.
If you like Klimt it is a must see.

But the walk gives a chance to explore the neighborhood. Very quiet as I was the one person there. The attendant was very friendly. The studio itself was worth the time it took to get there.
