Welcome to Vienna

Where the Kaiser once ruled

The era of the Habsburg Monarchy has left its mark on the city. Discover the numerous palaces in the city and take a look into its royal history: Experience a wealth of sightseeing in Vienna and an authentic stay at Hotel Bristol. The unique location opposite the Vienna State Opera house and on the corner of Kärtnerstrasse in Vienna, makes the Hotel Bristol the perfect starting point for your tour of discovery. Vienna is a truly diverse city – full of culture and history – just like the Hotel Bristol which is steeped in tradition. Our Luxury Collection Concierge possesses a wide-ranging knowledge of the city’s secret treasures and will happily share them with you. Just have a word with him and start planning your city trip to Vienna!

From culture to architecture

Culture vultures are invited to visit the more than fifty theatres, opera houses and the hundreds of museums. In Vienna you will find all of the architectural styles. Just take a closer look: the Gothic St. Stephen's Cathedral, the Baroque St. Charles's Church and the Art Nouveau Secession. A colourful alternative on an architectural sightseeing tour of Vienna is the artistic Hundertwasserhaus.

From Mozart to Mahler

Vienna is THE city of music. Ground-breaking composers of global acclaim, such as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Ludwig van Beethoven, Johannes Strauss and Gustav Mahler, have all spent time in the city. Combine a weekend in the city with a musical sightseeing tour of Vienna: Wiener Staatsoper, Volksoper or the Musikverein.


From leisure to luxury

Visit a real landmark of Vienna, the giant big wheel in the Prater-park, and take in the leisurely atmosphere, which at one time accompanied the Kaiser while he hunted on the same grounds. Also experience the luxurious side of Vienna: The numerous Viennese coffee houses are the place to find both the local and international crowd as they enjoy a small espresso or a large mocha after shopping in at the Goldenes Quartier, Vienna's walk of luxury retailers.

The Stateopera Hotel in Vienna

A not so well kept secret among locals: In summer the State Opera displays their current performances outside the Opera House for public viewing.

Discover the habsburg metropolis



The Upper Belvedere houses the greatest collection of Austrian art dating from the Middle Ages to the present day. At the heart of the displays of “art around 1900” is the world’s largest Gustav Klimt collection. The glittering highlights are Klimt’s golden pictures KISS and JUDITH, and masterpieces by Schiele and Kokoschka. Prominent works by the French Impressionists and the outstanding collection of Viennese Biedermeier paintings are further attractions at the Upper Belvedere.



The Eternal Emperor Franz Joseph

Franz Joseph was a public figure from childhood. Up until his death, he was probably the most depicted person of the 19th century - not least because the number of photographs and films grew rapidly during his reign. The Austrian National Library presently has more than 10,000 photographs, artworks and documents on the life of Franz Joseph. A selection of them will be shown in the exhibition. Also on show for the first time will be the original farewell letters written by Mary Vetsera, the lover of Crown Prince Rudolf, with whom she committed suicide. The letters were only discovered in 2015.

Until 27 November 2016


Picture Gallery

The Picture Gallery of the Kunsthistorisches Museum developed from the art collections of the House of Habsburg. Today it is one of the largest and most important of its kind in the world. The foundations of the collection were laid and its main emphases set in the 17th century: 16th-century Venetian painting, 17th-century Flemish painting, Early Netherlandish painting and German Renaissance painting. Among the other highlights in the Picture Gallery are its holdings of pictures by Pieter Bruegel the Elder, which are unique worldwide, as well as masterpieces by Vermeer, Rembrandt, Raphael, Caravaggio, Velázquez and Italian Baroque painters.
