Museums in Vienna Belvedere banner

Vienna and its museums offer a truly unique and diverse experience to travelers. From Baroque to Vienna Secession architecture, from Renaissance painting to contemporary art, from ancient history to modern science, the capital of Austria has always been one of the most important cultural hotspots in Europe since the Middle Ages.
Founded by the Romans on the Danube River in the first century AD as Vindobona, Vienna became the hometown of the Habsburg dynasty in the 15th century; its strategic position between the East and the West has made it one of the most multicultural cities in Europe for centuries and the place where some of the most renowned artists and scientists in history built their careers, including Mozart, Beethoven, Richard Strauss, Gustav Mahler, Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, Sigmund Freud, and Konrad Lorentz, to name just a few.
