The basics

Once a furniture factory, Kunst Haus Wien—along with the neighboring apartment building—was designed by Friedensreich Hundertwasser. The wild facade reflects the spirit of the art displayed within. The museum is one of the most popular in Vienna so book your ticket in advance to avoid a long wait to get in. You can also visit the modern art museum with the sightseeing Flexi Pass Vienna to take in the two floors dedicated to the works of Hundertwasser, as well as two floors that feature changing exhibitions.
