DescriptionVisit the magnificent Leopold Museum, a unique treasure trove of Viennese Art Nouveau, the Wiener Werkstätte, and Expressionism. Part of the most visited museum of the city’s hottest cultural site, the MuseumsQuartier, the museum houses the most significant and largest Egon Schiele collection in the world, as well as masterworks by Secession founder Gustav Klimt. Admire the impressive works of art and embark on a journey into fin de siècle Vienna, when artists such as Egon Schiele, Gustav Klimt, and Oskar Kokoschka turned the world upside down and broke free of old traditions. The new creative movement began with the Viennese Secession and presented itself in Art Nouveau. They gave the old Habsburg Empire one last flourish and turned Vienna into one of the hottest cultural centers of the time. The Leopold Museum also holds a host of objects created by artists of the Wiener Werkstätte ranging from Josef Hoffmann to Kolo Moser, considered unique milestones of international design history. The modern architecture of the Leopold Museum, a light-filled cube of white shell limestone whose color is reminiscent of the bright buildings on Ringstrasse where you can still admire the Art Nouveau style, stands in stark contrast to the historic ambience of the Imperial Stables. The light-filled atrium not only offers views of and into the building itself, but also impressive and unexpected views of the city of Vienna. The museum’s panorama windows offer a wonderful view of central Vienna with Maria Theresa Square and the Hofburg Palace.
