The golden roof is so special and unique. It is rather new comparing to most other old buildings in vienna. I didnt go inside but just took pictures outside.

Destructed in World War II but fortunately completely restored, this is a time capsule of the era of the fantastic artist Klimt. The hall with his paintings is really impressive, as is the rest of the building. They also show some contemporary art.

Klimt's Der Beethoveries collection is stunning. The remaining contemporary works on show when we were there didn't impress. Nice gallery building convenient to Vienna Pass bus route and other attraction.

Beautiful art nouveau building - be sure to walk all around as the decoration is amazing. Also lovely inside. Only three exhibits on but the Klimt Beethoven frieze is just incredible.

The fourth district combines elegant tradition with
contemporary style and relaxed living. More than a
dozen town palaces and churches such as St. Charles
Borromeo have added glamour to a neighbourhood known
for its traditional retail and crafts shops, taverns,
cafés. Wieden is also home to Naschmarkt, Vienna’s
largest street market. Many bohemian types have found
their way to Wieden: meet them in trendy cafés and
