When the original Superman movie came our in 1978 Marlon Brando was headlined as the star. Actually, he had just a bit part. Important part but just a bit part. Which brings me to the Leopold Museum. Headlined on the posters around Vienna and leaflets for the Leopold museum is the name Klimt followed by Schiele. If you are a... More

There was Klimt and Scheele ecxhibition at the time + few others. The place is very spacious and bright and not too big so it didn't take many hours to go through all the levels. MInus is that in some halls there were only one or two pieces.

There are lots of pictures you will have seen numerous times in reproduction and seeing the real thing doesn't disappoint - quite the reverse. It's not, perhaps the most exciting display of all time, but it's simple, informative and very rewarding.

There are so many museums to visit in Vienna but this one has really got it right. Spend 2-3 hours here and by then you will have seen everything but not be too shattered! The main attractions are Schiele and Klimt but there are some other artists too - I particularly liked Waldmueller who came from Hinterbruehl - where I... More

This museum houses a splendid collection of 19th-20th-century paintings including plenty of Klimt, Schiele, and Kokoschka as well as some French impressionists and others. A must see

I really enjoyed visiting Leopold museum. There usually have several exhibition at the same time for all kinds of art aficionados. Their permanent collection is impressive as well. It could take more than a week to really admire everything.. but I tried! It's a shame not visit this beautiful place if you appreciate art, culture, and history.

Located in the Museum quarter, houses a large exhibit of Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele art. Gives a wonderful overview of the artistic movement during the early 1900's.

Staying in Neubau

Neighbourhood Profile
Vienna’s art district, Neubau buzzes with galleries, arts and crafts, trendy restaurants, avant-garde shops, and cafés. Neubau’s Spittelberg quarter with cobblestoned Spittelberggasse and Gutenberggasse make for a perfect stroll alongside Biedermeier houses and art shops. Don’t miss the historic courtyard at Amerlinghaus with its typical Pawlatschen galleries, a perfect hangout on a warm summer evening. Museumsquartier is Neubau’s undisputed highlight: the former Imperial stables house various top museums of 19th to 21st century art. If you love interiors, head for the Imperial Furniture museum (Hofmobiliendepot), one of the world’s largest furniture collections. Find your favorites among a dazzling array of Baroque, Biedermeier, Art Nouveau and Modernist chairs, sofas, cupboards, coat hangers, foot stools and wash basins. No weekend visit would be complete without stopping by a local café on a weekend morning for brunch.
