Austria can be really proud of this outstanding Museum. Every visit I explore something new.

The Picture Gallery of the Kunsthistorisches Museum developed from the art collections of the House of Habsburg and last visit I looked more closely at the flemish paintings by Peter Paul Rubens.

The Kunstkammer Wien is the most important collection of its kind in the world. The newly-installed galleries invite  to experience beauty one could hardly imagine. Fascinating details wherever you look. I was completely blown away by every piece I saw.

The rosary pendant from the 16th century, not bigger than a nutshell made of boxwood was so small in details that I could hardly see all the little figurines in it.

As you will be tired AND hungry for sure, after the visit there is another thing I want to bring to your attention: Don’t miss the café with austrian pastries by Gerstner or stay for one of the evening gourmet dinners on Thursday nights ( 6.30 p.m. to 10.00 p.m.). The ambience in the magnificent cupola hall is unforgetable and the food truly delicious.
