Master Hundertwasser has completely transformed the former Thonet bentwood furniture factory in his characteristic style. Today, irregular elements of glass, metal, bricks, wood and ceramic tiles in many colors give a unique character to the formerly inconspicuous building. Opened in 1991, Kunst Haus Wien houses a permanent Hundertwasser exhibition on two floors and two additional floors are devoted to changing exhibitions. On the ground floor, there is a café-restaurant and a shop.
Not far from Kunst Haus, you will find the so-called "Hundertwasser-Haus," Vienna's most original public housing complex. In the directly affiliated Café "Kunst und Cafe" (ground floor), they are showing a movie for free about a guided tour with Hundertwasser himself presenting "his own house".
And with the beautification of the district heating system Spittelau (which can be seen very well during a cruise on the Danube Canal), Hundertwasser has created a very special monument to himself.
Main entrance and access to the restaurant / café: no steps, , floors are uneven, elevator.
