  • The building is located behind the Hofburg and architecturally speaking, is gorgeous. It houses several museums and the State apartments. Equally important would be the national library

  • Walk from the Ballhausplatz along and viewing the stunning façade with its many Windows. The innerer burghof, you can maybe get through one of the stairwells in the Interior of the building. Not lost please.

  • Work on the creation of a new Castle or the new Hofburg (Neue Hofburg) started in 1881 under the leadership of Semper and Karl von Hazenaujer and was completed by Friedrich Omannom, Emil Foerster and Ludwig Baumann to 1913 g. monumentality and grandeur all the ensemble is enhanced by enormousness and more square, which has become today a large lawn. Open space area is dominated by two bronze horse statues on the West side — Archduke Charles, an opponent of Napoleon under Aspernom and Vahram (Anton Dominik Fernkorn, 1859); on the eastern side of the square-Prince Eugene of Savoy, the winner of the Turks (Anton Dominik Fernkorn, 1865). A large portion of the new Hofburg takes a reading Hall of the Austrian National Library and the Museum of Papyri. If my review was helpful-place thumb up

  • This place is the so called "Weltmuseum" ( formerly known as the Museum for Ethnology). They reopened it in fall 2017 and gave it a more modern shine. The collection contains armoury, ancient musical instruments and a wide variety of cultural artifacts from all over the world. The different cultural relics are put in the context of Austrian explorers' trips and the museum has space dedicated to a critical view on collecting cultural artifacts and colonisation in general ( which I found refreshing and noteworthy). The place itself is huge, be prepared to spend a full half day ( or more) inside. It's also a good place to take kids and it was surprisingly empty for a cold Sunday afternoon.
  • If you want to learn more about world history, you must come to this place. This museum shows a bit of different cultures around the globe. The architecture of the place itself its beautiful.
  • I love the architecture of this building. It looks even more impressive in the inside.
  • Not so big but very impressive museum. Colonialism is vire of this museum. Interaction with video material is great. So many testimonials from people around globe, mainly not protected small communities in Africa.
  • Enjoy Austrian History at the National Library and Weltmuseumwien.
