The Albertina museum houses one of the most important collections of drawings and old master prints in the world, but also more modern work, including photographs and architectural drawings. Amongst others, there are works by Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Raffael, Rembrandt, Albrecht Dürer, Gustav Klimt, and Egon Schiele.
The art collection of the Belvedere Gallery includes masterpieces from the Middle Ages and Baroque until the 21st century, though it focuses on Austrian painters from the Fin de Siècle and Art Nouveau period. The best known artists on display are Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele.
On an area of 22.000 square meters, the Technisches Museum Wien offers a wide range of fascinating insights into the world of technology. Unique exhibits from the past to the present make the house a venue for exploring exciting technological developments.
The MuseumsQuartier Wien is one of the ten largest cultural complexes in the world. But above all, it is a forward-looking, inner-city cultural district that will have an enormous impact on future trends. The MuseumsQuartier unites baroque buildings, new architecture, cultural institutions of all sizes, various disciplines of art, and recreational facilities in a single spectacular location.
The Giant Ferris Wheel, trademark of Austria's capital city and a symbol of Vienna's world-famous Prater, creates a very special point of reference for every visitor with its unmistakeable silhouette, clearly visible even from great distances.
