Dinner in the Museum

The Naturhistorisches Museum Vienna organizes a culinary Wednesday in its magnificent domed hall and offers either a mussel or asparagus dinner, depending on the season.The breathtaking view across Vienna from the roof of the museum is best booked at the same time.

The Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna invites you to a gourmet evening every Thursday with a multi-course dinner including museum visit. Here as well, the visitors dine in the imposing domed hall – a unique experience. As well as during these two themed evenings, the café-restaurant in both the Museum of Natural History Vienna and the Museum of Art History are also open during the day.

The Salonplafond restaurant in the MAK – Museum of Applied Arts, Vienna, is well worth a visit. With its imposing historic ceiling (to which the restaurant’s name refers) and many design elements such as furniture by Josef Frank and chairs by Oswald Haerdtl and Ernst Schwadron, the restaurant fits perfectly into the MAK.

The “Do & Co Albertina” restaurant is located in the same neoclassical palace as the Albertina Art Museum and offers Mediterranean-inspired cuisine as well as a wonderful sidewalk café with a view of the Burggarten.

After a visit to the Leopold Museum with its masterpieces of Austrian Modernism, including the world’s biggest Egon Schiele collection, the museum’s Café Leopold beckons with delights of Asian and Viennese cuisine.

From the Porcelain Museum of the Augarten Porcelain Manufactory, head straight to the Sperling restaurant for lunch, dinner or coffee. The museum restaurant offers great food in a pretty castle right in the middle of the Augarten.

A meal at the trude restaurant is the perfect accompaniment for a tour of the Wien Museum. The restaurant is named after the photographer Trude Fleischmann, and the Wien Museum has a large collection of her works. The restaurant serves up modern interpretations of Viennese cuisine in a welcoming atmosphere.

The Casino Kulinarium restaurant in the House of Strauss, the museum about the Viennese waltz king Johann Strauss, invites you to sample some of its delicious dishes. Here, too, the focus is on modern Viennese cuisine. The colorful and flashy interior designed by architect Denis Košutić, who also designed the museum, is well worth seeing. In summer, a beautiful outdoor dining area complements the restaurant.

      The museum is a place of encounter and sensory perception and offers plenty of opportunity to stimulate vistors and motivate them to interact with one another by looking at art together and then getting creative themselves.
      Induction loop available at the audio guide stand.
