A virtual way to marvel at Vienna

Do you want to get to know the oeuvre of Gustav Klimt from the comfort of your couch, or go on a tour through the vaults of the Capuchin Crypt (Imperial Crypt), where the Habsburgs lie buried? Nothing could be easier. Many museums and sights offer virtual tours and show you the glory of their collections online. Click through the top 100 objects of the Naturhistorisches Museum Vienna, be impressed by the paintings of Egon Schiele in the Leopold Museum, and dive into the centuries-old collections of the Albertina.

And a tip beforehand: The Belvedere invites you to take a virtual live guided tour of the museum on Facebook, every day at 3.00 pm.

Museums launching photo campaigns

The Kunst Haus Wien is also taking a particularly virtual approach. Under the hashtag #KunstdesZuhausebleibens (#Artofstayingathome), the museum is calling on everyone to take part in a photo challenge on its Instagram account. Users are asked to post everyday situations, whether still life or portrait, the curious or the funny. Have fun joining in!

With the Corona Collection Project, the Wien Museum has also launched an extraordinary campaign. So that future generations know what the coronavirus crisis meant to Vienna, the museum is collecting photos that tell the story of private and professional everyday life during the crisis. All residents of Vienna are called upon to send photos to the Wien Museum.
