Featuring world-renowned collections dating back five millennia, Austria’s principal museum of fine arts is an institution devoted to indulging our senses. To that end, the extraordinary gallery experience has been paired with an exceptional culinary one. The café and restaurant, situated at the heart of the museum, affords not just gastronomical delights, but an architectural feast, too. There could be no better way of appreciating a city's storied culture.
A city overlaid with such history deserves a museum equal to its breadth and depth -- and that's what Vienna got with the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna, one of Europe’s leading museum of fine arts. A visit there is a journey from the magical aura of the Pharaohs to amazing Greek classic, from ideal Italian renaissance to the splendor of Flemish baroque and back to Austria, when Gustav Klimt's seductive beauties greet the visitors.
After browsing collections over five millennia old, re-charge at the institution's architectural highlight: the stunning Cupola Hall, with the recently refurbished café and restaurant. Coffee specialties, delicious Viennese cakes and other mouthwatering bites all await, in a marvelous imperial setting. On Thursday evenings visitors can enjoy a gourmet dinner, then take an after-hours tour of the new Kunstkammer Vienna or the famous Picture Gallery. Sundays at the museum are equally memorable: Start with a leisurely brunch, then proceed to stroll the unparalleled collections.
