This building is beautiful from the outside; I love its simplicity and the contrast of the gold on white. Inside it's a bit of a let down. We're not modern artist fans so maybe it wasn't a surprise that we didn't engage with the exhibits....More
The Secession Building is a Secession-style exhibition hall (a branch of Art Nouveau, also known as the Jugendstil). You will admire the walls of the Beethoven Frieze, the famous painting belonging to Gustav Klimt. of course, reminds us of a group of rebel artists who...More
When I visited only one room (Beethoven's Frieze) was open even though at the ticket office the clerk gave the impression that one floor is completely open.
The Frieze is not worth a ticket, not even a student one...
We visited this beautiful exhibit space to see the frieze. This contemporary Secession was founded by rebel artists, including Gustav Klimt, who broke away from the more conservative prevailing art forms. There was not much to see beside the frieze but this alone was worth...More
I suppose the Klimt and the building makes this a worthwhile visit in itself but the rest is almost bare rooms. Audio guide for the Klimt is excellent and informative. Allow much less than 1 hour for a visit. Vienna card gets you free audio...More
Amazing view of famous Beethovenfries, you can seat and admire the room. Go to details, read the explanations, and look again. And that's all. You cannot visit the palace, and see the golden decoration. There are some other expositions but they are not of the...More
We should have read Trip Advisor! We asked our tour rep where to see Gustav Klimt’s work and he sent us here. We saw the renowned and impressive Beethoven frieze. It’s a shame it is displayed so high up on the gallery walls so that...More
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The
Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.

I don't know, but the line to get in is very short to non existent. Quite honestly I would go there first to determine whether or not it was worth it. the outside is much more interesting than the inside! Once in, it is a large white space with the frieze in the basement not being very large or interesting. the Leopold has much better representations of the era.
