  • The Haus Wittgenstein is built in the modernist style and strongly reminiscent of the Bauhaus architecture. Designed by Ludwig with the help of Paul Engelmann as a residence for Louis sister Margaret.

  • Interesting to have a rapid tour of this house about which I'd previously read. A shame that because a conference was being held there it wasn't possible to have more than a whistle-stop tour but even...  more »
  • If you do not know who built it and who lived in it, you'll pass by without paying attention. In General, it will be interesting only to those in the subject and suspect that such a little.

  • One of a kind. To see Wittgenstein's ideas on design and architecture is very moving too.
  • An architectural gem.
  • A very nice villa built in Bauhaus style
  • A must for any lover of Wittgenstein's philosophy.
  • As lovers of Bauhaus and Wittgensteinian that attracts in Vienna of course me House Wittgenstein. The co-production of Paul Engelmann and Ludwig Wittgenstein (where the latter probably has sought more detail issues such as door handles and window handles) is hard to beat on clarity and hidden details. Even if only the two lower floors are to visit, I could still feel the spirit of Wittgenstein. The exhibitions of the Bulgarian Embassy are a little disturbing, if one is only interested in the architecture of the building, but after all, so the House for the general public remains open. The admission price of €5,30 is in order. Also, the visitor is not supervised, but can move freely. Small Tip: for questions of detail simply question the Russian janitor (?)!

Where to stay in Vienna

As a former imperial capital, Vienna is full of lavish hotels reminiscent of the city’s royal past. If you’re traveling on a budget, it’s not hard to find hotels for a more affordable price. Consider staying in the Innere Stadt, or First District, if you only have a short time in town, as you’ll be within easy walking distance to many of the city’s main tourist attractions. Outside of the central core, Leopoldstadt, or Second District, lines the Danube and offers peaceful walks through tree-lined paths. For shopaholics, Mariahilf, or Sixth District, is a central neighborhood with busy shopping streets and lively markets.
