There is some really wonderful fine art to see her from the Old Masters. We also really enjoyed the Ancient Egypt collections and the sculptures. Lots of variety and things to see- you can definitely get lost in here with all the collections. A couple of hours is enough to see the best bits and not be too museum-fatigued.

There are so many beautiful works of art and treasures in this wonderful museum, one day just isn't enough to see everything. It is all housed in a breath taking building which has the most stunning paintings on the ceiling. I just need to spend at least another two days to take it all in!

My second visit here - there's just so much to take in (a bit like the Louvre etc) that it needs a huge amount of time - and energy. Used an audio guide this time - definitely worth it. There are combination tickets with other museums but you'll find there is so much to see here alone. The range of... More

The building only is worth the visit, not to mention the countless works of art. Will definitely go again. Had lunch at the restaurant, which was ridiculously overpriced and had bad service, but it was so nice to sit under the dome.

It is a nice museum. With paintings from famous artists. Too many paintings. But if this kind of artist isn't in your interest, just skip it

Interesting but not enough. It has paintings from famous painters but since I've seen other galleries it was not impressed. They could also do a better job organising it. They give you a pain in the . . . neck with hand bags. You are not allowed to carry them but you have to pay 1 or 2€ to keep... More

Both my wife and I really enjoy natural history and we had a great taste me here. Lots to see including very interesting display on the history of the universe. The usual displays of stuffed animals and fossils are there to see and while a little dated in some parts, most are still very interesting. The meteorite exhibit is really... More

The KHM Is Well Known for its masterpieces in paintings, but the unknown treasures are in the recently renovated and reopened chamber "Kunstkammer" with its Highlight of golden craftsmenship: the Saliera. What Is real impressive beyond, Are the Prince and Princess toys with automatic functions, masterpieces of incredible Fine mechanic Works. Best viewing in provided tablets around.

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.
