Another place which is located in city center, and worth to see. Built in Italian Renaissance style by architects Karl von Hasenauer and Gottfried Semper, the impressive Kunsthistorisches Museum was opened in 1891. The majestic architecture creates a fitting setting for the artistic treasures assembled...More

We went to the Breugel exhibition, small group viewing in English. The guide was outstanding, pointing out so many little twist & turns in the paintings - he clearly knew his stuff! The museum itself is a magnificent piece of architecture. One aspect that particularly...More

This museum should be visited first all for its astonishing construction, the stairs inside make one stare for quite a long period. The permanent exposition includes a rather impressive number of different exquisite works, beautifully arranged and organized. One can also relax on a very...More

Have always adored the Breughels which are permanently on display. The Breughel special exhibition gave some new insights into the range of Breughel's accomplishments, but there were far too many people there for comfort.

Came to Vienna for this (ended today) so the rest of Vienna is bonus. Fantastic building. U19s go free. The Breugel exhibition was excellent if busy. There is so much life in his paintings.

This art museum has an excellent collection. We went to see the special Bruegel exhibit which was outstanding. Devote a good portion of your day to get the full benefit of a visit.
