The original atelier belonging to the world famose painter " was kept in its most important parts and a totally new building was errected over it. Housing a rich and artistical interested family.
You can take aguided tour through the working place of Gustav Klimt with many references to his paintings and love affairs

Klimt's atelier is located in a residential area and can be reached by tram 58A from Hietzing (stop Feldmühlgasse Verbindungsbahn).
Actually, the original atelier was a bit different from the past since it occupied just the basament. The first floor is now used for concerts and conferences. As I was explained by the kind person at the ticket office, the original atelier is now contained in the building where the entrance is.

The visit is quite short but interesting even if paintings are copies of the originals exibited in Belvedere and Leopold Museum.
It seems to go back time and be with Klimt while he was painting.

I suggest to check opening time since the museum is a private one and doesn't follow the opening time of the public ones.

Very good shop inside selling books, postcards and calendars.

I found it, that was a big step, I had it all to myself, I read a lot of information. The villa has been vastly changed since Klimt used it as a studio. There are pictures to help you see what it was like and they have done their best to recreate its look. I found it hard to separate the outside (how it is pictured in the books) from what it had been. Seeing a few of his artist's smocks wasn't really enough of an extra for me.

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.
