Directions to Leopoldmuseum
Located in the centre of the Museumsquartier! Here you will be able to visit hundreds of masterworks of Austrian modern art collected by the passionate art lover Dr. Rudolf Leopold (hence the name Leopold Museum, this collection was given to the Austrian public in the 1990ies) - all of them are shown in this building!
The Leopold Museum is a unique treasure-house of Viennese Jugendstil, the Wiener Werkstätte and Expressionism.
It is the most-visited museum of the city’s hottest cultural site, the MuseumsQuartier, and it houses the most significant and largest Egon Schiele collection in the world, as well as masterworks by Secession founder Gustav Klimt.
Furthermore, the Leopold Museum presents a host of objects created by artists of the Wiener Werkstätte ranging from Josef Hoffmann to Kolo Moser, which today are considered unique milestones of international design history.
Baroque meets Modernism: The architecture of the Leopold Museum, a light-filled cube of white shell limestone, stands in striking contrast to the historic ambience of the Imperial Stables.
After your visit - we advise you to enjoy the Museumsquartier Square with full of great cafes and restaurants - or just join the locals hanging out and chilling all over the place. It is a unique and very relaxed atmosphere.
Check our TOP ATTRACTION, Restaurant or Nightlife Section for more information on what to do here.
