Museum of Fine Arts Vienna (KHM)

Emperor Franz Joseph constructed the Vienna Museum of Fine Arts for the imperial collections and with its treasures it now ranks as one of the most important museums in the world. Objects from five centuries – from ancient Egypt and ancient Greece to the end of the 18th century – are showcased here, beside an extraordinary art gallery with paintings by Rubens, Rembrandt, Raphael, Vermeer, Velázquez, Titian, Dürer and the largest Bruegel collection in the world. Gustav Klimt, in collaboration with his brother Ernst and Franz Matsch, created a series of paintings housed in the magnificent staircase located twelve meters above the museum’s lobby. A cafe can be found in the spectacular domed hall.
