I had been very keen to see this fabulous building for several years of first learning about it's existence. I took the first opportunity to go and see it for myself. I wasn't disappointed... it was amazing. Designed in 1986 with onion spired roofs, multicoloured exterior and trees and shrubs growing out roof gardens and balconeys, it's a great improvement on the usual dull social housing found in most cities!

There were dozens of other tourists looking at this private apartment block designed by the late Austrian artist/architect Friedensreich Hundertwasser on the morning I was there. It is not possible to go inside but there is a terrace cafe where you can have a drink and some torte if you need it.

There is a little shop on the ground floor selling posters, postcards, calendars and other gifts and things related to Austria's celebrated son!
