Kunst Haus Wien

Due to renovation work, the Kunst Haus Wien will remain closed until the beginning of 2024.

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.

Also on the ground floor is the "Garage", where artists and creative types deal critically with the theses formulated by Hundertwasser on the topics of sustainability, climate change, recycling and urbanity. And on the lower ground floor, the so-called "Galerie" hosts selected items of young photography.

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 "Kunstcafe" (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 Spittelau waste incineration plant (which can be seen very well during a cruise on the Danube Canal), Hundertwasser has created a very special monument to himself.
