4.1
#6 of 88 in Museums in Vienna
Art Museum Architectural Building
Take a journey into a country of creative architecture that stands in harmony with nature at Hundertwasser House. Austrian painter Hundertwasser conceived this House for Human Beings and Trees, which opened in 1986. See how the artistic vision came to life in architectural features: undulating floors, indoor trees with limbs extending from windows, and roof gardens. Have a drink in the cafe in front of this expressionist landmark of Vienna. The stores across the street offer artist- and house-related souvenirs. This is one of Vienna's most visited buildings and a part of Austria's cultural heritage. To visit Hundertwasser House on your trip to Vienna, use our Vienna itinerary maker.

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.

  • Hundertwasser is one of my favorite artists and the famous Hundertwasser House with its quirky and colorful architecture is absolutely unique. The building is not only stunning from the outside but even from the inside. Even the washrooms are creatively designed. It's one of the most interesting sites to visit in Vienna for sure.
  • The house itself is cool but it's really overgrown, messy, and just plain dirty. It is not colorful.. it is very disappointing that they would let it get so bad..
  • Always busy with tourists but worth a visit and having a look. If you are a fan of Hundertwasser I'd recommend you visit the Fernwärmer in the 9th district which is fantastic! I love that the artist tried to make social housing much more user friendly for the tenants and the trees and grass really contrast to the usual architecture!
  • The Hundertwasser House is almost a must see building. The colors and the natural flow of the architecture gives it a good feel especially when contrasted to straight bland architecture of the surrounding houses. There are no less than two cafes in the house. The one I visited, Kunst-Cafe im Hundertwasser House, is owned by an artist and has a movie about Hundertwasser. Also nice is that they maintain art books for visitors, offering people and kids to make their own works. The waitress was very friendly and told me a lot about the house itself and other things. I gave it one star less, not so much because of the house, which is perfect, but the house is just an isolated building located within an otherwise standard Vienna neighbourhood.
  • It is the most notable work of the Austria born New Zealand artist Hundertwasser... Here one will encounter the artist's very own style with bright colour, live form , a reconciliation of human with nature denying straight line... A hidden treasure in Vienna's heartland...
