I thought this place was amazing. The building itself is beautiful and the amount of paintings here is quite astonishing. I really enjoyed my time here. The are several gallery spaces with paintings grouped by who did them and where. I am no expert and don't have a lot of experience of visiting places like this, but even for someone... More

This museum has a terrific collection with a lot of the same subject matter as you would find in the Louvre. In many ways, it's better than the Louvre. The curation is good, there are fewer crowds, there is a huge collection of Egyptian and antique artifacts, and a fantastic set of old masters. Best of all, the English guides... More

Another great museum with so much to see. Hundreds of paintings, the empowers gold some pretty good Egyptian artefacts and so so much more. Give yourself plenty of time as it is huge. Easy access for those less able and a nice cafe in the centre with amazing cakes. Another free entry with Vienna pass.

We were blown away by the opulence and grandeur of this building and spent several hours looking at the exceptional collection of artworks contained within it. All the Old Masters are here but you can't see them all then it just becomes a blurred. Suggest doing sections of the gallery or researching online beforehand to see which works appeal the... More

We took the 'Hop on hop off' bus to reach here. You still have to walk a little but this bus ticket includes entrance fees to almost all the attractions in Vienna. The museum is just gorgeous and well organized. One can spend days here if art, architecture and history are one's passion. There is a lot to see. The... More

The collections and, most especially, the building itself absolutely blew me away and left me in awe of what humans can do. Mankind is pretty cool.

We visited both the Art History Museum and Natural History Museum in 1 day, but would recommend giving them a day each. Get an audio guide for sure and try out the cafe, the apple strudel was amazing.

Staying in Inner City

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.
