  • The Leopold Museum in Vienna, easily accessible by underground U3/U2 stop people's Theatre (volkstheater) can't help but go if you love these painters and the Vienna secession movement. You can admire the works, paintings, objects, posters from the 19th and 20th century including Jugendstil craftsmanship. Visits can be booked on line and the ticket is cheap for the amount of works to be observed. With the City Card of 24 to 72 hours duration varies from Vienna still costs less. Some paintings by Klimt here visible are also known by those who know nothing about art like me: you learn something new ... had been commissioned murals for the University of Vienna which were greatly opposed to the realistic mode too which were represented, for example, life and death in it. But for Klimt are real strolls in the city, including a visit to the secession building that houses the Beethoven frieze (my 34 for 2 in which commemorates the Ninth Symphony) or the Museum of fine arts, and for those who want, even to the grave in the cemetery in Hietzing. Other character for which Mr. Leopold risked the assets on Egon Schiele referred to observe the entire collection of paintings. Schiele died for having contracted the Spanish just 28 years is the first German Expressionism with the "poor" Oskar Kokoschka. Why poor? Try to be in love with the widow of Gustav Mahler without being reciprocated. Of Schiele paintings can be admired rather self aligning and disquieting. To close "To his art. All art its freedom "is as it is written in German on the portal of secession which I will discuss, hopefully another time.

  • During our visit to the Museum quarter, we were on the road with 3 generations and we found something for everyone. My wife & I were in the MUMOK and my parents only in the Leopold. The teenagers were partly in the Museum or in the adjacent streets stroll have been and the smallest has played in the yard while we drank coffee. Great individual stores in the surrounding Castle Road and new pen road and great architecture between modern and classical music.

  • A great unique place in Vienna that is home to a blend of small vendors to restaurants, coffee houses and wineries. Great for wining and dining, chatting with friends, chilling in the sometimes brutish sun or performing whatever in front of an international crowd. Plus it houses a huge contemporary art museum if that is your vice. The location is at the boundary of the inner city and as such shouldn't be missed by tourists. It might even be one of Vienna's go-to places for tourists. Self declared atypical tourists can gladly skip the place, as there are much more urban, gritty places around the corner waiting to be discovered.
  • "Lee Young Jun PEN ART" Pen Art(General Remarks) Infinity of lines and dots have symbolism.  Such symbolism is ever changing according to the spirit’s depth.  All works are kaleidoscopic; they are usually composed of indescribable expressions.  Therefore, art’s depth also can be said to be unlimited.  Is pen art’s depth also infinite?  In other words, do the lines and dots flowing from the nib of a pen have an artistic qualification?  In this respect, it is worth thinking deeply.  Pen art begins from an essence of nature’s fundamental values.  From the standpoint of value, or color, a harmony of black and white is essential in nature.  As it is impossible to see any color in darkness, distinguishing color is an essential role of light.  That is why the soul is drawn to light.  Whiteness, or light is a spiritual reflection of the soul while blackness, or darkness is a reality of life on earth.  As the color green is an essential color of vegetation, burnt charcoal is an earthy color that will stay near black.  Blackness is heterogeneous and may be hostile to life.  If blackness belongs to the essence of nature, it also may be said to represent the image of death.  A combination of black and white constitutes degrees of lightness and darkness.  When painting black on a white background, the soul is transported to the white background.  Whiteness comes to life when contrasted with black line and black space.  In this case, soul also may be expressed through the blackness.  Soul may be transported to the black or a combination of white and black, which shed a mysterious merit to the soul or spirit.  Pen arts starts and ends from an essence of nature’s fundamental contrasts.  The primary essence is infinite and eternal while the artistic harmony of black and white can take one’s breath away.  But, this is not possible until a metamorphosis has been realized over many years and spiritual transcendence has occurred.  The transfer of spirit  occurs when one’s life experiences are projected onto the white canvas in harmony with blackness.  That is the true ‘pen art.’                Artist Lee Young Jun I am a Korean. I pioneered the " Lee Young Jun Pen Art " and Perfected the genre. I am Artist Lee Young Jun. Pen Art is the only genre is an important work In the world. The works are extremely valuable. And no one is able to work not dare to imitate. The hope my work can be sympathy to many people. Thank you.
  • Lots of nice and pretty girls are hanging out here. A good number of cafés to hang out. The artwork is not everyone's art. Fits an alternative audience.
  • There's a few museums to visit here, recommended to go with time to spend at least 1 day visiting them.
  • Perfect spot to lounge in good weather. Location at the end of Mariahilferstrasse and across from the Museums of Natural History and Fine Arts is excellent. Wander south to Naschmarkt; wander north into St Ulrich for food. Great access to art museums, obviously. Bonus: it's Vienna, so BYOB is no problem.
