With its innovative and artistic design KunstHausWien catches the eye from afar. In Vienna it is the only building designed by Friedensreich Hundertwasser that is open 365 days a year.

The museum and exhibition venue, founded by Hundertwasser and named Kunst Haus Wien, is one of the most important sights of the city. With high-calibre international exhibitions of contemporary art with a focus on ecology, it has established itself as a fixture on the Viennese cultural scene.

Museum Hundertwasser, located in KunstHausWien and frequented by visitors from all over the world, houses the most comprehensive permanent exhibition of works by the Austrian artist and visionary. It presents a unique cross-section of Hundertwasser’s oeuvre and offers an unforgettable experience – not only appreciated by younger audiences – often rounded off with a visit to the garden.

By presenting artists who take up Hundertwasser’s ideas on ecology and sustainability and who reflect upon these from today’s perspective, Kunst Haus Wien as the first “ecological museum” is a platform for globally discussed and most topical issues.
