When you enter the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna, one of the world’s leading museums of fine arts, the history permeating its walls is almost tangible. You are about to embark on an extraordinary journey through five millennia: After marveling at the magical aura of the Pharaohs and the stoic wisdom of ancient Greece, you find yourself pondering the high ideals of the Italian Renaissance, only to come full circle at the treasures of Imperial Austria and Gustav Klimt's seductive beauties in the stairwells.
There is a lot to see and do at the museum, so a stop at the café in the museum’s stunning Cupola Hall is a welcome break. Amidst this awe-inspiring architectural setting, the café offers a menu of traditional savory specialties, as well as all kinds of tea and coffee varieties, and famous Viennese pastries. On Thursday evenings, visitors can enjoy a gourmet dinner and then take an after-hours tour of the Picture Gallery. Sundays at the museum are equally memorable: Start with a leisurely brunch, then enjoy a stroll through the unparalleled collections.
