The Hundertwasserhaus features bright colors, ceramic pillars, undulating floors, a roof covered with earth and grass and large trees growing from inside the rooms, with limbs extending from windows....you will feel astonishment!
Hundertwasser is Austria's equivalent to Gaudi in Barcelona - unconventional, unusual and exceptional designs that are really worth seeing!
This very interesting landmark indeed was designed by Friedensreich Hundertwasser in the 1980's and after being highly criticized by local Austrian politicians (Hundertwasser took no money to design this building). It was immediately accepted by the Viennese population and has now become one of the most popular and visited buildings in Vienna - and today is part of Vienna's cultural heritage.
Right next to the Hundertwasserhaus is a shop and a cafe you can visit. While there, have a look upstairs - there is a huge gallery where Hundertwasser paintings are exhibited. Temporary exhibitions are also housed here from time to time which can be interesting.
