Art & culture
Yet it is not only the city"s imperial architecture that renders it a city of beauty. Vienna also boasts world-renowned museums, art collections and works of art. The Kunsthistorisches Museum (Museum of Fine Arts) houses the world"s largest collection of paintings by Bruegel, while numerous works by Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele are exhibited at the Belvedere and the Leopold Museum in the MuseumsQuartier.
MuseumsQuartier, a cultural attraction of international standing located in the city center close to famous museums, opened in 2001. Covering 45,000 square meters it is an architecturally fascinating combination of baroque (the former Imperial Stables) and future-oriented design.
Key attractions include: the Leopold Museum, the Museum of Modern Art (Mumok), Architekturzentrum Wien, and Kunsthalle Wien. A children"s museum, a children"s theater, an information center for youngsters, and a number of attractive restaurants, cafés and shops complement the rich array of cultural offerings.
