"Secession" Jugendstil / Art Nouveau Tip by viddra

Jugendstil / Art Nouveau, Vienna: 19 reviews and 53 photos

  Secession
by viddra
 
 

Secession's 1 of the 1st art nouveau buildings (1897/98) and as such it's different from most buildings in Vienna. It was built as an exhibition centre for avant-garde artists.
The 1st thing you'll notice is the cupola of gold-plated laurel branches, known as the 'Krauthappl' (head of cabbage) by the locals.

Address: Art Nouveau in Vienna

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
