MAK - Museum of Applied Arts
Here a little bit of everything is exhibited, i.e. Bentwood chairs by Thonet that are still used in our Viennese coffeehouses. Also Biedermeier style sofas surprise with pink, green, yellow, or red colors, because the Biedermeier style, with its simple and clear shapes, is considered the cradle of design in Vienna.
If you are into Glass, china, silver, and textiles - here you can find them of the highest quality and in unusual designs. They were produced at the famous art nouveau 'Wiener Werkstätte' workshop , which was founded in the early 19th century.
Contemporary art is also represented in this museum. Have a look!
One of the highlights is the MAK Design Shop that you can find here, full of young and unusual designs.
And to round the whole outing up: the Österreicher Restaurant is really a culinary delight.
